Applying conditional snippets within togglers

Postby jlemon on Mon May 12, 2008 12:12 pm

Is it possible to apply different conditions to a snippet, when that snippet is within several different togglers in the same topic? Or are conditions to snippets restricted to the entire topic?

For example, I have a topic with multiple togglers. Several togglers refer to the same table. I want the table's content to vary, depending on which toggler the user opens.

Can this be done with conditional text? If so, what is the procedure?
Or do I have to convert my togglers to individual topics?

Thanks,

AFAIK, conditions are included / excluded at the topic level rather than the snippet level, so if you included a snippet with snippet conditions multiple times in the same topic they would all end up with the same includes / excludes. So I think in your case you would have to point the togglers at different snippets to get the results you're describing.
Until next time....

Thank you for your prompt reply!

I figured conditional snippets were limited to topics, but I thought it was worth asking. The people who haunt in these communities seem to be able to work around just about any problem.

But to utter the most expensive words in software development: "Wouldn't it be cool if it could do that?" I think it would. Even so, applying conditional snippets at the topic level is still pretty slick. I can certainly make do.

Thanks again,
