# Help with arraying dnamic block

I'm using a 2-2D recangles that are 5'x16" and 10'x16" and I am trying to figure out how to array this in one direction, to the left, but have the array on 5' increments. Also, within each rectangle I am needing text to show which size it is.

e.g. If I drag the array to the left more than 10' but less than 15' it will apply 15'.

Thank you.

Okay, attached is the best I could come up with, but it is not doing everything I am wanting. The 5' peice should not always be visible the 10' peice should be visible at all times.

The 5' peice should only appear on 10' increments starting at 15'.   e.g. 15,25,35,45,55...etc and not appear on 10' increments starting at  10'.   e.g. 10,20,30,40,50...etc.

So there should be a series of 10' pieces with only one 5' piece on the end?

The Dynamic block works great. Thanks a lot. I did, however add to it. I added a visibility set to show and hide the 5' section. Which just fine. See attached.
