insert a graphic resource into an if/then rule


Recommended Posts

I am trying to insert a small box into a rule. I have two fields that may or may not contain data. If they have data, I need to return my graphic, a space, and the data from the field name. I have the graphic in resources and as an insert graphic rule. I have try both and either works correctly. Here is what I'm using.

if (Field("allocation_name_1").length > 0)

return Rule("insertbox") + " " + Field("allocation_name_1");


return "";

I'm getting "Resource("box") Edith J. Carrier Arboretum" instead my graphic where the bold text is (The text doesn't come back as bold, nor do I want it to).

Maybe try:
return Rule("insertbox").content + " " + Field("allocation_name_1");

You'll have to check the box in the rule to return tagged text. This also requires that your image is the right size.

You can also do something like:

return "<graphic resource="+resourcename+" width=7200> "+Field("allocation_name_1");
