Hopefully someone can put me out of my misery! I seem to be going round in circles trying to work out how to add a product to an Opportunity.
To use the Opportunity.UpdateProducts(...) method you need an OpportunityProduct Object. I can get a Product Object via the ActApplication.ActFramework.Producsts.GetProductBy
I presume that a OpportuityProduct SubEntity object is a wrapper or abstraction object to the Product and each OpportunityProduct has a unique ID that is associated with an Opportunity object and is different to a Product ID.
Can someone let me know if it is possible to add a product to a Opportunity with the new ACT! 2010 SDK It used to be a fairly straight forward procedure previously but my brain is tied up in knots now!
Yours very confused,
Solved! Go to Solution.

George recently posted something on getting products for opportunities, let me know if that helps, if not I have a few product samples I can probably pull from.
Here is his post.

Thanks for the quick reply and link.
I had a look through the code that George had posted but the problem is I am attempting to create a new OpportunityProduct Object i.e. I have a new Opportunity object and would like to add Products to that new Opp.
The Opportunity.UpdateProducts method only takes OpportunityProduct objects and I can not find any way to convert a Product to a OpportunityProduct, if that makes any sense! haha

This sample adds a new OpportunityProduct to the current opportunity
Opportunity o = ActApp.ApplicationState.CurrentOpportunity;
OpportunityProduct oppProd = ActApp.ActFramework.Products.OpportunityProductMan
oppProd.Name = "Test Prod";
oppProd.Quantity = 1;
oppProd.Cost = 100;
oppProd.Price = 50;
oppProd.Discount = 0;
