    Configurable list - how to do calculations

    Asked by scottlannie on March 30, 2016 at 10:10 AM

    I know that calculations can't be done currently in a configurable list, but is there a way to inject some code into the form that will enable this functionality?

     

    Thanks

    Scott

    Unfortunately not - you can't inject any code into the form that would allow configurable list to have calculations. Form calculations can only be performed either with Form Calculation fields, or by using the insert/calculate conditional rules on regular form fields:

    As the Configurable List widget is loaded inside its own iFrame, using source code of your form and injecting custom code there wouldn't help. This is because we can't simply inject a piece of code into the form that would allow calculations to be performed inside the separate iFrame of the widget itself - the feature would have to be implemented inside the widget.

    Depending on your needs, it would be best to perform the calculations directly with regular form fields rather than inside the Configurable List widget, or to look at one of our widgets that can perform calculations - such as the Spreadsheet widget:

    Please let us know if there is anything else we can assist you with, and we will be happy to help.
