Default Re: Slipsheet on data change

Actually, in FusionPro 8.0, it's even simpler, without requiring anything in the JavaScript Globals:
Code:
if (FieldChanged("Image"))
     FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Slipsheet", true);
Or, even more succinctly:
Code:
FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Slipsheet", FieldChanged("Image"));
Also, you can set the slip sheet arbitrarily like this even if you are using imposition, by setting the slip sheet to start at the beginning of a stack in the Composition Settings, and then starting a new stack like so in OnRecordStart:
Code:
if (FieldChanged("Image"))
     FusionPro.Composition.StartNewStack();

I am a not a Support engineer, and this forum is not a substitute for Support. My participation on this forum is primarily as a fellow user (and a forum moderator). I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally. I am not able to answer private messages, emails, or phone calls unless they go through proper Support channels. Please direct any sales or pricing questions to your salesperson or inquiries@marcom.com.

Complex template-building questions, as well as all installation and font questions or problems, should be directed to FusionProSupport@marcom.com. Paid consulting work may be required to fulfill your template-building needs.

This is a publicly viewable forum. Please DO NOT post fonts, or other proprietary content, to this forum. Also, please DO NOT post any "live" data with real names, addresses, or any other personal, private, or confidential data.

Please include the specific versions of FusionPro, Acrobat, and your operating system in any problem reports or help requests. I recommend putting this information in your forum signature. Please also check your composition log (.msg) file for relevant error or warning messages.

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.
