Hi,

Can anyone help me with this. I would like my caption to show an image if an associated data cell has data in it.

For Example:
I would like to show a name on the screen with a coloured box behind it but if the data cell doesn't contain any data (Name) then not show the coloured box. I have tried using bounded boxes but if the data cell is empty there is still a very small coloured box which is the size of the bounding.

Like below.

Use a script checking if there is data and instruct it to manipulate the image

Bounded boxes don't work because even if the cell is empty it still creates a tiny box based on the padding around the side. I think it will need to be a fixed length rectangle either a GT element or an image imported into the title but either way only made visible if the cell contains content.

OK I have found a solution.

Create another cell in the data base and make it list an image conditional if the cell with text in is "Not Empty"

Example:
=IF(ISBLANK(D5),"","c:mypictures/Image.png")

Then create you Title with all the boxes in then link the image in Datasources to the cell with the formula in it.

I haven't found a way to use a GT Designer element yet or hide/unhide a GT Designer element.
