Sorry to hijack this question, but on the same subject - is there any way to
handle the toggling other than stepping line by line through the field,
checking the appropriate item and choosing the relevant imagesource? I find
working on the field this way very slow.
For speed I'd like to do this in a variable and put the finished list into
the field, but you can't set the imagesource of a chunk of a variable, only
a field (that I know).
Is there a better way than I've got in my head?
