Refresh Calculated Fields

Hi,

 

Before the question, I just want to give a big thumbs up, great job guys! Love the tool.

 

Now, for "Edit Item" Forms, is there any way to "refresh" the values of the Calculated fields being displayed? I know the values don't get calculated until the form is submitted. I thought of a couple of alternatives, but what do you recommend and how could we do it?

 

- Have a "refresh" button that saves the item and reopens it again (what would the syntax be for this?)

- Have some html boxes that calculate the value of the calculated fields based on a change function (how would we do this, with a html object or a text object?).

 

Users like to see the outcome before hitting submit, hence this request. Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    You can calculate the value via JavaScript and refresh it dynamically in a form.
