Using a "Controller" in a JS Rule


Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I have a template that includes an optional bulleted list. The bullet my client has used in their design looks like this: ">>" I am able to achieve this character in the Helvetica font by holding down the ALT key and selecting a lowercase "q".


Because the bullet is optional, AND a different color than the text that precedes it I need to write a rule that will return this character. Obviously if I write my JS rule to return "Helvetica" and then the letter q, this isn't going to work. Can I include a controller (in this case "ALT") in my rule? If not, does anyone have any suggestions on how I can do this? Zapf Dingbats and Wingdings don't contain a character even remotely close to this one.


Thanks in advance!!

Hello Lisa,


You can refer to the ASCII code for that character and use the FusionPro Chr() function to return that character.


I looked up this character in Helvetica on my WinXP machine and it looks like ASCII code 187. The following simple rule returned that character for me:


return Chr(187);
