use button to refresh calculated field

Question

Hello,

Is there a way to refresh a calculated field when a button is clicked?  I have a field set to 'Calculated Field' in a submission form that references a couple other fields that themselves are updated with a button's js function. When you don't manually (type in) update a field then the calculated field won't show any changes. So when my button's function runs and Field1 gets a timestamp, the calculated field that uses Field1 doesn't refresh. It does refresh if I type in the time/date to Field1. 

I'm need to show the refreshed value in the calculated field before it is submitted. Any help would be appreciated!

Hello, are you really on a submission form?

As I check, you can only have Calculated values on a submission form and they real time responsive. 

As for the calculated fields,  I think they perform their calculation during on load and if you refer a field from it, it will gather those information  directly from the table datasource thus it will not response/change value unless the changed values on the fields  are saved on the tables first. 

You may want to try calculated values. You can set a field to became a calculated value on its form element. 

I hope it helps

Hi NiceDuck,

I should have been clearer--the field is a regular number field with a setting of Calculated Value, so it's not technically a calculated field. I have it working as needed now, just need to Round Up as posted earlier in the thread.
