I am working on something similar, but when I use the syntax Jeremy suggested, the statement always evaluates to the else condition. Here is my code and the first few rows of my csv file. Can anyone spot where I am going wrong? For example even when I change the “yes” to “no” only the else statement gets evaluated. This makes me think that my conditional checking is wrong somehow but I can’t spot it.
( row.truncated=="yes" ? [ newText("instructions", "<b>Re-type the partial sentence in the prompt and complete it.</b>") .settings.center() .settings.css("font-size", "medium") .print() ] : [ newText("instructions", "<b>Re-type the full sentence in the prompt.</b>") .settings.center() .settings.css("font-size", "medium") .print() ] )
