kenryanjr created the topic: Concatenate Fields with IF statement

I have two fields I would like to concatenate into one.

The first is the column that the data belongs to
<?php $col2170 = 'col2170';$value = '<span class="fa fa-camera">&nbsp;</span>' . $value; ?>

The second field is another column that I would like to have the if statement.
<?php if (empty($value)) { $value='<img src="images/noImage.jpg" alt="No Image Available" class="img-forsale"/>'; } else { $value='<img src="images/forsale/vehicles/'.$value.'"  alt="Photo of Item For Sale" class="img-forsale" />'; } ?>

Problem is I am not calling the col1516 in this statement and having a hard time getting this to work. Can someone help me.

If you wish to display an image in a list view you need to use the Image Scale plugin for that.

Setting it the way that you have tried with the if statement won't work.

You just need to put the following code in the "item Wrap Column":
${CBImageScale width: 20px;}

This way images will be displayed if uploaded. If not, no image will appear.

Let me know whether that solution is ok for you.
