Default On Record Start Multiple Pages based on single selection

Hello,


I have a job where there are going to be 165 choices each with a front and back page. It will be set up as a multi-select checkbox in MarcomCentral and they can select whichever designs they want.



I have a current product available that uses the same logic but is only populating one page based on a selection. The code for this rule is below:


Code:
var Design = Field("Design Name");
var designArray = [];
designArray = Design.split('|');
var results = [];
 
for (i=0;i<designArray.length;i++){
    FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage(designArray[i], true);
}
What I would like to avoid is calling out each option in the rule like below:
Code:
if(Field("Version") == "Design1")
{
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Design1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Design2", false)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Design3", false)
}

else if(Field("Version") == "Design2")
{
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Design1", false)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Design2", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Design3", false)
}

else if(Field("Version") == "Design3")
{
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Design1", false)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Design2", false)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Design3", true)
}
If there a way to modify that first code snippet to display both pages for the design if I name the pages something like "Design1 - Page1" and "Design1 - Page2" or "D1 - P1" and "D1 - P2"?


Appreciate any assistance or guidance

        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("Design3", true)
}
Right, you definitely don't want to do that, especially since, if you set all the pages to be Unused initially in the Page Usage dialog, all of that is basically equivalent to this single line:
Code:
FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage(Field("Version"), true);

It's the same as the one-liner, but with two lines:
Code:
FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage(Field("Version") + " - Page1", true);
FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage(Field("Version") + " - Page2", true);
Or, if the field value has multiple designs, delimited with pipe characters, as in your first snippet:

var designArray = [];
designArray = Design.split('|');
for (i=0;i<designArray.length;i++){
    FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage(designArray[i], true);
}
Then doing that for two pages would look something like this:
Code:
var designArray = Field("Design Name").split('|');
for (var i in designArray)
{
    FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage(designArray[i] + " - Page1", true);
    FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage(designArray[i] + " - Page2", true);
}

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.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
