Default Suppressing Rows in Table with alternate shading

Using FusionPro Designer 10.1.11

I'm trying to create a table where the rows have alternate shading with 13 percent black shading starting on row two and following the same every other row. I would like the shading or rows in the table to be suppressed if the data doesn't exist and need some assistance on the coding.
I know you can "Loop" code but with alternating row shades was not sure how to do this.

This is part an example of my table (the finished table will have a possibility of 40 rows with two columns.

new FPTable;
var table = new FPTable;

table.Rows[0].Cells[0].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:1800, Right:0 };
table.Rows[0].Cells[0].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[0].Cells[0].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[0].Cells[0].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[0].Cells[1].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:0, Right:0 };
table.Rows[0].Cells[1].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[0].Cells[1].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[0].Cells[1].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[1].Cells[0].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:1800, Right:0 };
table.Rows[1].Cells[0].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[1].Cells[0].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[1].Cells[0].ShadeColor = "Black";
table.Rows[1].Cells[0].ShadePct = "13";
table.Rows[1].Cells[0].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[1].Cells[1].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:0, Right:0 };
table.Rows[1].Cells[1].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[1].Cells[1].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[1].Cells[1].ShadeColor = "Black";
table.Rows[1].Cells[1].ShadePct = "13";
table.Rows[1].Cells[1].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[2].Cells[0].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:1800, Right:0 };
table.Rows[2].Cells[0].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[2].Cells[0].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[2].Cells[0].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[2].Cells[1].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:0, Right:0 };
table.Rows[2].Cells[1].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[2].Cells[1].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[2].Cells[1].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[3].Cells[0].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:1800, Right:0 };
table.Rows[3].Cells[0].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[3].Cells[0].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[3].Cells[0].ShadeColor = "Black";
table.Rows[3].Cells[0].ShadePct = "13";
table.Rows[3].Cells[0].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[3].Cells[1].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:0, Right:0 };
table.Rows[3].Cells[1].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[3].Cells[1].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[3].Cells[1].ShadeColor = "Black";
table.Rows[3].Cells[1].ShadePct = "13";
table.Rows[3].Cells[1].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[4].Cells[0].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:1800, Right:0 };
table.Rows[4].Cells[0].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[4].Cells[0].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[4].Cells[0].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[4].Cells[1].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:0, Right:0 };
table.Rows[4].Cells[1].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[4].Cells[1].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[4].Cells[1].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[5].Cells[0].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:1800, Right:0 };
table.Rows[5].Cells[0].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[5].Cells[0].ShadeColor = "Black";
table.Rows[5].Cells[0].ShadePct = "13";
table.Rows[5].Cells[0].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[5].Cells[1].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:0, Right:0 };
table.Rows[5].Cells[1].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[5].Cells[1].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[5].Cells[1].ShadeColor = "Black";
table.Rows[5].Cells[1].ShadePct = "13";
table.Rows[5].Cells[1].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[6].Cells[0].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:1800, Right:0 };
table.Rows[6].Cells[0].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[6].Cells[0].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[6].Cells[0].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[6].Cells[1].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:0, Right:0 };
table.Rows[6].Cells[1].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[6].Cells[1].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[6].Cells[1].ShadeColor = "Black";
table.Rows[6].Cells[1].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[7].Cells[0].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:1800, Right:0 };
table.Rows[7].Cells[0].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[7].Cells[0].ShadeColor = "Black";
table.Rows[7].Cells[0].ShadePct = "13";
table.Rows[7].Cells[0].Font="Futura Std";

table.Rows[7].Cells[1].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:0, Right:0 };
table.Rows[7].Cells[1].HAlign = "Left";
table.Rows[7].Cells[1].VAlign = "Middle";
table.Rows[7].Cells[1].ShadeColor = "Black";
table.Rows[7].Cells[1].ShadePct = "13";
table.Rows[7].Cells[1].Font="Futura Std";

return table.MakeTags();

I'm not sure how to write the rule to purge rows in a table where there is no data and with alternate shading in the cells.

Default Re: Suppressing Rows in Table with alternate shading

You can still use a loop to populate a table with alternate row shading. You can specify separate ShadingColor1, ShadingPct1, ShadingColor2, and ShadingPct2 properties on the table object, as described here:

So, I can't test this without your other job files, but I think this will do what you want:
var table = new FPTable;

table.ShadingColor1 = "White";
table.ShadingPct1 = 100;
table.ShadingColor2 = "Black";
table.ShadingPct2 = 13;

for (var i = 1; i <= 40; i++)
    if (!Field("cardholder " + i))

    var row = table.AddRow();
    row.Cells[0].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:1800, Right:0 };
    row.Cells[0].HAlign = "Left";
    row.Cells[0].VAlign = "Middle";
    row.Cells[0].Content = Field("cardholder " + i);
    row.Cells[0].Font = "Futura Std";
    row.Cells[0].PointSize = 10;

    row.Cells[1].Margins = { Top:20, Bottom:30, Left:0, Right:0 };
    row.Cells[1].HAlign = "Left";
    row.Cells[1].VAlign = "Middle";
    row.Cells[1].Content = Field("credit_limit" + i);
    row.Cells[1].Font = "Futura Std";
    row.Cells[1].PointSize = 10;

return table.MakeTags();

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.
