Conditionalizing text

While working with text elements, you can conditionalize inline pieces of text, such that they are displayed only when a specified Expression Manager condition is satisfied. You can implement conditions using the {<expression @value />} tag, where the @value attribute specifies the expression string. The content wrapped within this tag is included in the final resolved content only if the specified expression value evaluates to true.

Follow these steps:
  1. In the text editor, select a piece of text—for example, Mr.—and then select Edit > Insert Condition.

  2. Specify the condition in the Insert Condition dialog. For example:

    Once you enter this condition, the expression for the salutation, Mr., is automatically computed and placed in the text element:

    {<expression value="{*gender*}=='Male'">Mr.</expression>}

    You can test expressions for placeholders/variables (gender in this example) or Data Dictionary elements. An example of DDE-based conditions follows:

    Note: Ensure that string values in expressions are enclosed in single quotes (‘).
  3. Click OK.

Additional considerations for inline conditions

Keep the following considerations in mind while working with conditions:
  • Inline conditions are not supported for dates.

  • Inline conditions are not supported for unprotected collection elements.
