Checking if containter is empty in CDML

I have 6 container fields in a database. Some will get filled with a picture and some won't. I want to display these images if they are there. I dont want to lay down <img src> tags if I dont need to. How can I write a page so [FMP-if:Field:image1.eq.true]<img src="[Field:image:image1]">[/FMP-if]or something like this will just check the container field. All my efforts have returned nothing, a blank area. A repeating field for some reason returns the number "1" instead of a picture.

If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.

You might need to create some more calculation fields in your database that use the IsEmpty() function to check the status of the container fields -- the IsEmpty() function will be true if there is nothing in the container field.

Then do your other stuff based on the results from the calculation fields.

Yes Riprod, you are quite right there. When the IsEmpty() is TRUE you don't want to display the image reference!

Congratulations you've spotted the deliberate mistake!*

*There is an Australian talk-back radio host who used to have a "deliberate mistake" prize giveaway on his show to callers who would correct his errors -- perhaps a cheesy way of covering his blunders. This same announcer was recently embroiled in a "cash for comments" scandle, where on-air comments assumed to be editorial were actually paid advertisements. "I'm an entertainer, not a journalist" was his defence. Very dodgy.
