Default A way to call out "white" within a rule?

I have a business card template where a user can select a black or white background, and the copy is returned in the opposite.
Here is the code I used. It validates and works correctly on the desktop, but not when uploaded. (White appears dark grey on top of Black) The white is also within my template color manager.

var modTextBlack = "<f name=\"" + Field("Font") + "\">" + "<color name=\"black" + "\">" + Field("Fname") + "</color>" + "</f>";

var modTextWhite = "<f name=\"" + Field("Font") + "\">" + "<color name=\"white" + "\">" + Field("Fname") + "</color>" + "</f>";

if (Field("Color") == "black")
return modTextWhite;
else
return modTextBlack;

Appreciate the help on this.

The code looks right to me too. I notice in your color tags that your color name is in all lowercase, but in (my) FP color palette, the names begin with a capital letter. Could that be an issue?

Hi esmith. Trying to expand on the code you provided in a past thread. (Mucho thanks!) Unfortunately, I get the same result with the capitalization. (Dark gray type on a Black background.) Anyway, works great on the desktop.

Color names in FusionPro (in tagged markup) are not case-sensitive. That is, "Black" is the same as "black" and "BLACK." However, if you write some JavaScript logic which does a comparison against a color name (such as in your example), then that comparison may very well be case-sensitive. So you may want to do something like this instead:
Code:
if (ToLower(Field("Color")) == "black")
Beyond that, if your output is different in Desktop than in MarcomCentral, I would suggest asking about it on the MarcomCentral forum.

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.

Like I said, if it's working differently under MarcomCentral, you should ask on that forum. You may also want to try making a copy of the rule with the "Treat returned strings as tagged text" box UNchecked and output that to a separate frame as a means of debugging after uploading. Maybe dump the field value as well; it might not be what you think it is based on the entry in the web form.
