Default Fusion Pro Multiple Page Options...

This is my first Post, bare with me!

Im building an 8.5x11 program. With no imposition needed. Just a Multipage PDF.

1. Basically Im having it where the end user can choose from a drop down list of different page layouts. They are able to use the same page layout if they wanted. (example: They choose speaker layout for their first page and they also can use the speaker layout for the 6th page.)

In fusion pro I would have all my pages set to unused, I would do a on record start rule for each page layout. (If welcome page is selected, pull in welcome_page, and so on...) When the user pulls in speaker layout and fills it out, and then they pull in the same page again, would it populate what they filled out in the first layout into the page if they choose the layout again (Which I don't want)? So basically can I have them use the page twice using the same variable/page?

2. On top of them choosing which layout they want Im wanting the user to choose how many pages they want, 4, 8 or 12. I do not know how I would go about doing this? So remember all my pages with be different variable page layouts, so how would I tell Fusion Pro, if User selects 4 pages pull in 4 pages? Then they would choose their 4 page layout options from the drop down and it would call in the page layouts? Can Fusion Pro Do this?


Im needing some guidance, or some helpful information on how I can execute this. This template will be going up into Marcom.

Hopefully Im making since


Thanks

I'm not sure I understand. What do you mean "if they choose the layout again?" For a separate composition? Some example output might be worth a thousand words here.

Well, yes, FusionPro can output whatever pages you tell it to output with FusionPro.Composition.SetBodyPageUsage in the OnRecordStart rule. But if you're asking whether the drop-down lists can change based on whether the user first selects 4, 8, or 12, that's really a MarcomCentral question, so you should ask that on the MarcomCentral forum.

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)});
