Pages duplicating


Recommended Posts

Hi everybody,

here is my issue :


My fusionpro file contains many (5) bodypages wich are all different.


i have a database wich contains many datas (like name, mail, tel ...) and 5 fields (wich define quantity for duplicating each pdf page).


field 1 (for page 1) : 5 (quantity for duplicating pdf page 1)

field 2 (for page 2) : 3 (quantity for duplicating pdf page 2)

field 3 (for page 3) : 4 (quantity for duplicating pdf page 3)

name : DOE

last name : john

tel : +33789779797



At the end, the pdf must be composed of all page models with different quantity in fonction of corresponding fields values.


Coul someone help me to find the correct javascript rule to make it please ? Because i' am a noob in javascript developpement.


I tried a "onrecordstart" rule like "FusionPro.Composition.repeatRecordCount = Field("field 1");" but it seems to duplicate all pages with the same quantity


thanks in advance.

The way to do this currently is like so: Set the repeat count for the record to the total number of repeats for all pages. Then, call FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage() with the second parameter set to either true or false for each page, based whether the page number is in the current repeat range.


The code would look something like this:

var repeats = [];
for (var i = 1; i <= 5; i++)
   repeats.push(Int(Field("Field " + i)));

var ranges = [];
for (var i in repeats)
   ranges.push(Int(ranges.slice(-1)) + repeats[i]);

FusionPro.Composition.repeatRecordCount = Int(ranges.slice(-1));

var r = FusionPro.Composition.repeatRecordNumber;
for (var p in ranges)
   var usage = (r > Int(ranges[int(p)-1])) && (r <= ranges[p]);
   FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage(Int(p)+1, usage);

Of course, this is actually composing each record multiple times, and throwing out most of the pages from each pass, so it's not terribly efficient. We're considering adding a feature to FusionPro to more easily specify individual page repeats, without having to re-compose multiple times.
