Default Conditional color based on image choice

I'm trying to write a rule that will assign specific values to variables based on the choice of another. Input and assistance here will be appreciated!

I have three variables:

1. "ColorScheme" - the design name for the combination of background and text
2. "Background" - a pdf image
3. "TextColor" - Pantone colors

Based on the choice of a color scheme I need to assign:


1. a background image

and

2. specific colors to SOME of the text within a variable


Any guidance to get this done most effectively would be great.

This will end up on MCC.

thanks

stephen

You need a graphic rule like so:
Code:
return CreateResource(Field("Background"));

You need a text rule like so:
Code:
return '<color name="' + Field("TextColor") + '">';
Or depending on exactly what you mean by "SOME of the text within a variable," you need to include that "SOME" in the rule, something like:
Code:
return '<color name="' + Field("TextColor") + '">' + "SOME TEXT" + '</color>';

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)});
