Default dropdown box import images

Is there a code that can be used, so when a user selects an item from the dropdown list it then imports an image of that item. e.g dropbox is called exercises, the lists are squats,lunges, press up. when squats are selected it imports a jpeg from a stored location of the squat.

Hi Greg
Thanks for the website. Looking at your demonstration kit the cc dropdown list Method G seems like it could work. Regarding the code, could you point in the direct as to which code is required. Thanks

Steve,

All of the code is in the demonstration package that you can download with the link at the end of the tips page.


For that example, you basically need to create an map five CCs. One DDL and four Picture CC. One of the picture CCs is the conditional picture CC and left blank. The other three have the Alpha, Bravo and Charlie signal flag graphics. Once mapped you can delete those three from the document.

please could explain how to map. on my developer tab I've got the XML mapping pane which when selected opens the custom XML part. I'm not sure what to do from here and how to make a content Control conditional.
