I'm creating an app for the IPad and want to create a model that generates numbers based on user inputs. I'm trying to get an editable formula that when you enter a number it updates another field. Formula will involve IF statements based on text they enter that will then do basic math functions (similar to formulas you would find in an excel sheet). I have some experience in coding, so if I had a way to code a text button it would be great, but haven't found a way yet. I'm working in Indesign CC 2014 and am admittedly fairly new to the software (have worked in Illustrator in the past). Any and all help would be much appreciated.
Are you sure Indesign is the right tool for it? I doubt that. I'd rather use Flash or an app building kit.
