Configuration

By using a Config against the script, you can apply various settings.

Example Config code:

 

{
mode: "image",
image:
{ clipartAlbum: “ClipartAlbumName”, clipartName: “ClipArtName” }

,
position:
{ x: -10, y: 10, width: 4, height: 4}

,
text:
{ font: “FontName”, fontSize: null, color: "#3affef", character: "•" }

}

 

You need to decide which mode you wish to use, an image or a text character, and change the mode setting at the top of the Config.

Mode:

“image” will reference an image from a clipart category, you must specify the clipart album name first then the name of the image file to use, do not include the file type (.jpg / .png etc) and ensure the catergory and file names are exact named matches, including any capital letters etc.

Mode:

“text” will reference a character using a specified font name, font size (pts), color (use hex #------ or CMYK using c:m:y:k eg. 8:44:56:9) and text character (you must ensure the character to be used is within the chosen fonts glyph set)

Position: x and y measurement is how far from the text field you wish to position the bullets

Position: Width and height - this is the size of the image field (in pts) that will display the image or text character.

 

Applying to a Text Field

The Text Field you want to use the bullets with is required to have a tag applied to it for the script to initiate. The tag is “bulletpointlist” (see Text options image below Figure 2)

The bullets will appear on the left hand-side of the chosen text field when a line return is registered for that line of text once you have clicked focus away from the text field using bullets.

Please note: Bullets will be displayed outside of the text field - you may be required to adjust the positioning of your text field to suit any page formatting. See Figure 3.
