How to detect in init.bsh whether original images are available?

I used this code in index.htt to detect whether original images could be downloaded:
<% orgImages = false; %>
<ja:fileiterator start="0" ><% if (originalPath != void && originalPath != null && (fileCategory == Category.image))  {  orgImages = true; }  %> </ja:fileiterator>
But now has this code has been moved to a template file called from init.bsh, so that code gives now a crash.

So my question is:

How can I see in init.bsh whether original images can be downloaded?

This is exactly the same issue as your previous post. If you really need to do this in init.bsh you need to use a for AlbumObject loop, not a ja file Iterator.

In effect, you can't. You can detect the linking choice, like Link to originals via scaled images
linkOvS = engine.getImageLinking().equals(AlbumBean.LINK_ORIGINALS_VIA_SCALED);
But the user might have tagged one or two individual images with Use original or Include original, and you can't know about that until that image is actually processed during the album build.

I know, but I have no idea how to de that in a AlbumObject loop.
If you know it, please show the code.

So the best code is
orgImages= engine.getImageLinking().equals(AlbumBean.LINK_ORIGINALS) || engine.getImageLinking().equals(AlbumBean.LINK_ORIGINALS_VIA_SCALED)

I only use this for the hint text, so if there are exceptions it is not a problem.

Thanks for the code.

What are you really trying to do? Why move your original code and why can’t you move it back?

With an album with 100 folders, that part of code was 101 times loaded because it was in index.html.
With the new template all 101 index.html files are smaller, so the whole album takes less space and loads faster.

But if a single image has ‘use original’ or ‘include original’ set how do you know which one to apply the download to on the index page?

Regardless, you could in index.htt use
<%!
boolean orgImages = false;
CheckOriginals(AlbumObject folder, boolean hasOriginal) {
for(ao: folder.getChildren()) {
if(ao.isFolder()) hasOriginal = CheckOriginals(ao, hasOriginal);
else {
your code to check for original path with
if original exists set hasOriginal to true
}
}
orgImages = checkOiginals(rootFolder, false);
%>
Not tested.
