Default Suppress line if multiple fields are empty

Using Acrobat Pro DC with FusionPro version 10.1.11

I need to join the State and zip with a different "join" of just a space.

The following code works except it joins STATE and ZIP CODE with ", "
Is there a way to differentiate the joins.

var items = [ Field("STREET"), Field("CITY"), Field("STATE"), Field("ZIP CODE") ];
items = items.filter(String); // remove empty items
return [ items.slice(0, 4).join(", "), items.slice(4).join(" ") ].filter(String).join("<br>\n");

So, I'm usually in favor of clever ways to use arrays and such to abstract things and reduce repetitive code. If this were something that could be possibly extended to handle more fields in the future, that would be a great way to go. But in this case, you're only ever going to have these few fields, so it might be better to be more straightforward.

If you only need a single space, just put the space there:
Code:
return items.slice(0, 3).join(", ") + " " + items.slice(3);
Though really, even that seems a bit unnecessarily complicated. You can be even more straightforward. The whole thing could be one line:
Code:
return [ Field("STREET"), Field("CITY"), Field("STATE") ].join(", ") + " " + Field("ZIP CODE");
Though even that doesn't save much from the most straightforward approach:
Code:
return Field("STREET") + ", " + Field("CITY") + ", " + Field("STATE") + " " + Field("ZIP CODE");
I also don't think you need the call to remove empty fields; an address without any of those would presumably be invalid. Unless there's an "Address 2" line, in which case I would just handle that as a special case:
Code:
var streetAddr = [ Field("Address1"), Field("Address2") ].filter(String);
return [ streetAddr, Field("CITY"), Field("STATE") ].join(", ") + " " + Field("ZIP CODE");

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.

Thank you Dan,


The first suggestion worked great. I forgot to mention that if the whole address line was blank I wanted the line suppressed. Also "having no address" was a customer request for business cards.


Thanks again for your expertise.

Just Trim the whole thing:
Code:
return Trim([ Field("STREET"), Field("CITY"), Field("STATE") ].join(", ") + " " + Field("ZIP CODE"));
