I would suggest using a picture type field to store if it is an outdoor, indoor, etc picture rather than relying on the other field.
You can write the script so that it goes the the layout that you want and finds the outdoor, indoor, etc pictures. I am not sure how portals play into this because you havent mentioned where they are being used.
I have a portal in the picture layout, but maybe thats not the best choice. I dont know anything about script so I wouldnt know how to do that. Can you help me out?
Please post your structure, layouts, etc that you currently have.
- record #
- model #
note: depending on the type of picture (ex: roof curbs, equipment rails, pipe portals, etc) each type has a letter (outdoors = A, indoors = B, etc). If there is more than one outdoor picture it becomes A1, A2, A3, so on and so on. This represents the model#. I have about 150 pictures set up like this.
Next I have a "main Page" layout
- roof curbs (button)
- equipment rails (button)
- pipe portals (button)
note: each button leads to a seperate layout for each category (roof curbs, equipment rails, pipe portals). Lets pretend I pressed the roof curbs button; a new layout opens up.
"roof curbs" layout
- pictures (button)
- drawings (button)
- cut sheets (button)
note: once again each button leads to a seperate layout for each category (pictures, drawings, cut sheets). Lets pretend I pressed the pictures button; a new layout opens up.
"roof curb pictures" layout
- the model# for roof pictures start with the letter "A", therefore, when the layout opens up, I would like all the pictures from the "pictures" layout that have a model# starting with "A" to show up on the layout.
