Form Builder: Calculate Fields Example

Calculated Data Example

When creating the fields that need to be calculated, must give each field a unique ‘Property Name’ in the ‘API” tab of the field. Property names must follow JavaScript naming syntax. In this example, the fields have the property names of cost1, cost2, cost3.

The field receiving the calculation must have the example JavaScript code added to the 'Data' tab in the 'Calculated Value' section for field

Example JavaScript Code:

value = data.cost1 + data.cost2 + data.cost3;
