With the newly introduced Multi-Currency feature all money related fields now have a corresponding ExchangeRate* fields. These should be used in all front end widgets (be it stock or custom).
Fields that have changed in the process are:
The ExchangeRate* fields are the values in the currency selected by the user. If multi-currency is not enabled on the site, then the ExchangeRate* fields are the values in the merchant’s currency. The “Old” properties are still being used. Their values are in the merchant’s default currency just as they were in the versions previous to 5.2.
A new field in the product model has been introduced. It is called ClrType. Because this field will be used on the frontend for better performing queries, it is a mandatory field. To learn how to get the ClrType value for a product, see the following code snippet:
Type contextProductsType = contextProduct.GetType();
contextProduct.ClrType = contextProductsType.ToString();
