Re: Folder Connection

Not sure you can code the library connections but you might be able to set up your libraries then use a variable to point at which one to use via an if statement.

You coukd use this to switch between dev, test and live connections for example.

Re: Folder Connection

Thank you for your reply Andy, but I´m looking to have just one connection and change it if it´s necessary with a variable.

Re: Folder Connection

Thats not possible currently. You can pass folder loctions in your data and reference them in certain objects for example using the Card extension you can reference an image like below but the connections cannot be set on the fly.

If you do find an answrr let me know.

Regards

Andy
