Default Onrecordstart: Suppress multiple graphic fields based on input

I have product that has an option for page size, orientation, and bleed.

As of now, my product will suppress all pages that are not the size or orientation selected. However, when I compose my record, regardless of my selection for bleed, the "Bleed" and "NoBleed" graphic box appears.

Each page has a two graphic fields on them [Bleed, NoBleed].

Is the fact that there are multiple graphic frames with the same name an issue? I assume that it should suppress all graphic fields with this name.

Code:
if (Field("Bleed") == "Yes"){
    FindGraphicFrame("Bleed").suppress = false;
    FindGraphicFrame("NoBleed").suppress = true;
}
else {
    FindGraphicFrame("Bleed").suppress = true;
    FindGraphicFrame("NoBleed").suppress = false;
}


if (Field("Orientation")== "Portrait")
    {
    
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("small_L", false);

        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("large_L", false);
    
        if (Field("Size") == '11" x 17"' )
            {

                FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("small_P", false);

                FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("large_P", true);
        
            }
        else if (Field("Size") == '8.5" x 11"' )
            {
        

                FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("small_P", true);

                FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("large_P", false);
            }
    }

else if (Field("Orientation")== "Landscape")
     {
    
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("small_P", false);

        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("large_P", false);
    
        if (Field("Size") == '11" x 17"' )
            {
    
                FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("small_L", false);

                FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("large_L", true);
        
            }
        else if (Field("Size") == '8.5" x 11"' )
            {
        
                FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("small_L", true);

                FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("large_L", false);
            }
    }

No, the FindGraphicFrame function (like the FindTextFrame function) returns only one frame object. If you have multiple frames with the same name, it will find only one of them.

You probably want to come up with some kind of naming scheme using the page numbers, such as "P1_Bleed", "P1_NoBleed", "P2_Bleed", "P2_NoBleed", etc., so that you can deal with them in a loop, something like this:
Code:
var useBleed = (Field("Bleed") == "Yes");
var numPages = 2; // change this to the appropriate number for your template
for (var page = 1; page <= numPages; page++)
{
    FindGraphicFrame("P" + page + "_Bleed").suppress = !useBleed;
    FindGraphicFrame("P" + page + "_NoBleed").suppress = useBleed;
}
Although, you could optimize this by suppressing the frames only on the pages you're actually outputting.

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.

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)});
