View Full Version : New calculated grid columns in v1.1

2014-03-23, 03:17
Working through the enhancement requests that have been submitted as tickets, we have added a new grid column attribute "Recalculate". When data is entered into a grid cell interactively any readonly or calculated grid columns on that row are automatically recalculated and re-displayed. This is typically used to calculate totals e.g. if you have three columns; Quantity,Price,Cost and "Cost" is calculated by quantity*price, then as you change either quantity or price the "Cost" column in the grid row will be recalculated.

Tip: calculated fields can be bound to variables using the notation m.variable e.g. m.totalcost. In other words they don't have to be bound to a database/table/column.

HI Barry

This is great! Would it work for Form section and other sections as well?

Thanks & Best Regards
