Default I'm Having Trouble trying to figure out stacked variable images

Hello All,

I am trying to figure out how to setup my document to handle a type of variable image stacking that is based on true and false values in an attached data file.

The image area can contain 1 - 3 images, from a pool of 6. Most of the time they are vertically stacked, center aligned on the vertical axis, and the combination changes for each record in the data. My only thought is to build a table with JS and make the rows the variable part based on an IF statement, but I haven't had luck pushing an image into a table.

I have attached some images to show how the are setup, the data behind them and the results. All of this is with a different software and I am really wanting to bring this all together in FP.

I very much appreciate any help possible.

Can you post what you have so far? Ideally the template, or at least some sample data and images to work with?

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)});

Can you just create a text frame and fill with graphic images?

var images = [];
for (i = 1; i <= 6; i++){
    if (Field("XSell" + i)){ images.push('<graphic file="./XSell' + i + '.pdf">'); }

return images.join('<br>');
