Default Javascript templates in zipfile?

Hi. We have a guy who assist us with javacript rules in templates in FusionPro. We put his template (.js textfile) in the FusionPro/Plug-ins/ folder to make the rules he has written available for us.

The problem is when we upload this to DSF (FusionPro Server) the rules won't update and seems missing, are there anything you must put on the FusionPro server (the .js file) or is that file included in the ZIP-file your collecting in FusionPro Desktop. Do I have to do something in the template to make the js-template active?

I would copy the functions from the .js file into the JavaScript Globals for each job using them. Otherwise, you'll need to make sure the exact same .js file is present on the machine running FusionPro Server as on your FP Desktop machine.

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)});

Hi again,

Okay,my follow up questions is maybe a bit painful for advanced users but how do I place the functions in the javascript globals so I don't have to put the .js file on the FusionPro server?

I believe that's as easy as copying all the code in your external .js file and pasting it into the Globals window which can be accessed by clicking on the button in the lower, left corner of the dialog that shows all your template rules.

We ended up pasting Javascript Global rules into each template to solve the problem.
