Button Bar For Dynamic Printed Forms

Recommended Posts

 I have 4 layouts for a form that we print and the script goes to the layout for the form 4/6/8/12 depending on the data (wells) in the record. It turns out they need to batch print and its convoluted to write a print a script to switch layouts in an automated fashion. So I had revised it by using hide object when and stacked all the elements up on the layout but it turns out to be rather ugly in layout mode.

this was using repeating fields in order to get the desired data to show.

But then i decided on a better method - using button bars and hide objects.

This essentially does the same thing but much easier to see in layout mode. Now I can write a script to print the found records and the proper form will print based on the data :D 

The segment or button bar will hide based on the record type, and the data displayed is also calculated and evaluated on the fly.
