Re: [psheets] Syntax question
- I tried it but no go.
I've gotten this notion that the only valid pipe token in the party
sheets is FOR. With your suggestion or any of the other variations I
tried, the export seems to strip away all pipes, return string in
between the pipes (e.g. \\%.SKILL.Open Lock.RANK\\ is not evaluated
if set up in the IIF statement) and then seems to break out any FOR
loops. I also tried using the second IIF variation:
and what appeared on the party sheet (a slight variation of
I tried this without the \\'s and the only difference was a lack of
\\'s on the party sheet)
With the miniscule bit of java/programming knowledge I have, I took a
look at the code for the party export (Party.java), compared it to
the character export (PlayerCharacter.java) and it looked like the
only entry it checked for after a pipe was FOR. To test that out, I
tried using the |VAR| token and got the same results (it stripped the
pipes and returned whatever was in between).
Am I right in thinking the party sheets are not as robust as the
player sheets? Or is it simply a matter of me being naive and not
using the right syntax?
p.s. would there be a better board/forum to post to for these types
of questions or is this the appropriate one?

But, there are only five things the IIF notation supports right now:
IIF (and OIF) do not currently support the IF.ELSE or EQ,NEQ notation
There are some examples of the correct |IIF and |FOR loops in the Files->Alternate Charactersheets->csheet-MP.zip
