    Form calculations

    Asked by kauseway on December 08, 2014 at 05:38 PM

    I have a text field with a conditional calculation.  


    Initial clean:


    You must select a (home condition) Then when I use the checkbox (select your addon), it adds to the initial clean as expected.   But If i go back up to home condition and change the drop down selection, it recalculates the field but ignores the (select your addon)!!  If I uncheck and recheck the select your addon, the calculation is corrected. I need this to automatically calculate.  Am i doing something wrong or is there a work around??

    I took a look at the calculations and I see that you are changing the value inside of the Form Calculation using the conditions, but that there are also calculations inside of the widget itself.

    I would suggest keeping the calculations in the widget or in the conditions since this way they are both trying to write the value down in the same way.

    If you need any assistance with this please let us know how your calculations are based and we can help you set them up properly.

    Best Regards,
