Wildcards or regex in graphic resources?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to use a wildcard or regex to match a filename from a database field?


In my database I have a callout for an image of "1", the actual filename is "1_logoname.pdf". All images have the underscore separator between the database callout and the additional description in the file name.

Not really. If the number were the "wildcard" part, you could write your own algorithm to iterate and try 1_logoname.pdf, 2_logoname.pdf, etc. If the text part is "wild," that's harder: if there's a list of known possible values, you can put them into an array and try them one at a time. Otherwise, this is something that would need to be done with a custom application using FusionPro Server.
