I'm trying to create basic calculations in a form that I am creating in LiveCycle Designer. Has anyone does this, and can you please give me some help? I don't understand the instructions in the Help feature or the book that I have. Here is what I am trying to do:
Text Field A 100 (manual entry)
Text Field B 75 (manual entry)
Text Field C 25 (Result of calculation of A - B = C)
Text Field D 2 (manual entry)
Text Field E 50 (Result of calculation of C X D = E)
this.rawValue = FieldA.rawValue -Field B.rawValue
Then on E Field's calculate event you woudl use this command:
this.rawValue = FieldC.rawValue * FieldD.rawValue
If you woudl prefer to use FormCalc you woudl still use the Calculate event and on FieldC the command woudl be:
FieldA - FieldB
On the calculate of Field E
FieldC * FieldD
Hope that helps
Okay, Paul, I have another question... I'm not even sure that it is possible.
Do you know how to force a positive result? Here is my example of what I am trying to say:
Value A: $1.00 minus Value B $1.10 equals -$0.10 (this comes out to a negative, but I need to just show it as a dollar amount not as a negative)
Not all situations will result in a negative number - so I need to always just show it as a dollar figure regardless of positive or negative.
Total.rawValue = Math.abs(Field1.rawValue - Field2.rawValue)
How can I send you a file that I created with the portion of the form that I cannot get to work? I've looked for a way to upload to here, but I don't see anything.
