Question Suppressing Text Frames

I am working on a complicated form where a multiple fields can be either empty (Suppressed), Blank (leaving spaces for users to complete) or have a value. I listed an example of the three options for the Last Name field below

1. Empty ""

2. Blank "Last Name
__ __ __ __ __ __ __"

3. Value "Last Name

The form needs to flex left to right and top to bottom. Each line has multiple fields (ie. Last Name, First Name, Middle Initial). I need to suppress the text Frames when ALL fields on that line are empty so the second line will move up. I am having difficulty due to the field labels being above the actual field and the numerous rules needed for each field. Below are examples I what I trying to do using field names below

Eaxample A
Line1: Last Name First Name Middle Initial
Line2: Smith John M
Line3: Address 1 Address 2
Line4: 123 North Main St Apartment B

Example B
Line1: Address 1 Address 2
Line2: 123 North Main St Apartment B
Line3: City St Zip
Line4: Anywhere NY 12345

Default Re: Suppressing Text Frames

It's hard to visualize exactly what you want to see in the output from the description. Can you post a mock-up of some sample data and what you expect in the corresponding output?

I am a not a Support engineer, and this forum is not a substitute for Support. My participation on this forum is primarily as a fellow user (and a forum moderator). I am happy to provide help and answers to questions when I can; however, there is no guarantee that I, or anyone else on this forum, will be able to answer all questions or fix any problems. If I ask for files to clarify an issue, I might not be able to look at them personally. I am not able to answer private messages, emails, or phone calls unless they go through proper Support channels. Please direct any sales or pricing questions to your salesperson or inquiries@marcom.com.

Complex template-building questions, as well as all installation and font questions or problems, should be directed to FusionProSupport@marcom.com. Paid consulting work may be required to fulfill your template-building needs.

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.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
