Default Flip uploaded graphic 180 degrees

Is there a way to build a rule that will flip a user uploaded graphic 180 degrees.

In this particular case the user will be uploading two images. I wish to have one upside down, and the other as is.

So I do not want to rotate all uploaded images, just one in particular image from one field.

Thank you!

Default Re: Flip uploaded graphic 180 degrees

Sure, just create two separate, overlapping frames, one that's rotated 180 degrees, and one that's not, and write a rule for each one to either include the graphic or not. For instance, one frame would have a rule like so:
Code:
if (graphicShouldBeRotated)
    return Resource("YourResource");
//else
return NullResource();
And the other would have the opposite:
Code:
if (graphicShouldBeRotated)
    return NullResource();
//else
return Resource("YourResource");
This is similar to the logic which selects a different frame for landscape and portrait graphics:

Or, you could put the graphic in both frames, and suppress one of them selectively in OnRecordStart, like so:
Code:
if (graphicShouldBeRotated)
    FindGraphicFrame("UnrotatedFrameName").suppress = true;
else
    FindGraphicFrame("RotatedFrameName").suppress = true;
Or, if you have a Producer (FP Direct or Server) license, then you can selectively rotate a single frame in OnRecordStart, like so:
Code:
if (graphicShouldBeRotated)
    FindGraphicFrame("YourFrameName").rotationAngle = 180;

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)});
