Default Re: Suppress specific pages on two values

What would you recommend doing for this?
Well, first, the code you provided can be reduced, starting with combining cases that have the same results, in several ways. I'd start with this:
Code:
switch (Field("PLANOPTION"))
{
    case "200":
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("200 P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("200 P2", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("200NonInsured P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("200NonInsured P2", true)
        break;
        
    case "250":
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250 P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250 P2", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250_500_750_1000NonInsured P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250_500_750_1000NonInsured P2", true)
        break;
        
    case "500":
    case "750":
    case "1000":
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("500_750_1000 P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("500_750_1000 P2", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250_500_750_1000NonInsured P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250_500_750_1000NonInsured P2", true)
        break;
}
And then I would further factor out some of the repeated code like so:
Code:
switch (Field("PLANOPTION"))
{
    case "200":
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("200 P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("200 P2", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("200NonInsured P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("200NonInsured P2", true)
        break;

    case "250":
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250 P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250 P2", true)
        break;

    case "500":
    case "750":
    case "1000":
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("500_750_1000 P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("500_750_1000 P2", true)
        break;
}

if (Field("PLANOPTION") != "200")
{
    FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250_500_750_1000NonInsured P1", true)
    FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250_500_750_1000NonInsured P2", true)
}
Then I think it's pretty obvious how to add the new requirement:
Code:
switch (Field("PLANOPTION"))
{
    case "200":
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("200 P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("200 P2", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("200NonInsured P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("200NonInsured P2", true)
        break;

    case "250":
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250 P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250 P2", true)
        break;

    case "500":
    case "750":
    case "1000":
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("500_750_1000 P1", true)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("500_750_1000 P2", true)
        break;
}

if (Field("PLANOPTION") != "200" && Field("Amount"))
{
    FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250_500_750_1000NonInsured P1", true)
    FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage("250_500_750_1000NonInsured P2", true)
}
I'm pretty sure that will do what you want.

P.S. Further reductions are possible, but the code may be less straightforward. For example:
Code:
var pages = [];

switch (Field("PLANOPTION"))
{
    case "200":
        pages.push("200");
        pages.push("200NonInsured");
        break;

    case "250":
        pages.push("250");
        break;

    case "500":
    case "750":
    case "1000":
        pages.push("500_750_1000");
        break;
}

if (Field("PLANOPTION") != "200" && Field("Amount"))
    pages.push("250_500_750_1000NonInsured");

for (var p in pages)
    for (var i = 1; i <= 2; i++)
        FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage(pages[p] + " P" + i, true);

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.
