[SOLVED] Dynamic Content in PDF Output

I have an html page that contains about 8 different fex's and the user can chose a pdf output of these same fexs. They are asking to be able to chose which fex's (out of these 8) are included in the pdf output. I'm sure there is a way to do this and I'm am just searching for some best practice/guidance on the best way for me to accomplish this. Thanks for your advice!

I assume that you have something to select which fexes are going to be run ?

If so, then I think you will need a main fex that includes all the other fexes, and you will need some dialog manager to determine which fexes get run and which get skipped.

To combine them all, I would suggest using SET COMPOUND = OPEN | CLOSE

Check the documentation on how to use it.

Currently no, when they open or filter the html all fexs run/are filtered. Then for the pdf output same thing. All fex's currently run with the selected filters in the pdf output. I'm going to check out having a selection of which fex's to run and then putting them in a main fex using SET COMPOUND. I'll update with my solution if I get it. Thanks!

We used Waz's suggestion and figured out how to use DM and parameterize the document and -Include the specific fex's that are requested when requested.
