Diving Log Designer - Flag variable

Post by Gravis2005 » Tue Nov 08, 2011 20:15

Hi everybody !!
I need some help with the log designer...
i am designing my own Log style, and i wish to add the Country Flag next to the Country Name.... but there is no "Country flag Variable"!!
Is there another method to do this??

Hi

The Country flag is currently only available in the Country printout (when you select "Country" in the print dialog list). In the logbook printout, only the name is available. It is planned to make the detailed data also available in the dives printout in a future update.

Kind regards,
Sven

Ok, great, thanks for the answer!!
i was thinking that maybe until the update, somebody could help us writing a temporary solution.
I dont know anything about programming :oops: , but its possible to do something like this?:

Code: Select all

 "if LogCountry=Germany, then show img=germany.png ; if LogCountry=Spain, then show img=spain.png"

and so on...
offcourse, "spain.png" is the name of the spain flag embedded in the project.

Once again, i have no idea about Codes and programing, so i am just asking you guys if this is possible??
:angelic:
thanks again!!

With some effort you can do this. Just add a flag picture from the left toolbar in the report designer for each of your countries. Set the "Appearance Condition" property to "Formula..." and use this formular for each country (replace USA with each country name):

Code: Select all

LogCountry="USA"
