[FYI] How to create an "Editable formula"

Recommended Posts

Just wanted to share  a workflow on how to create a an editable formula field. This will allow you to calculate the value for a field based on other fields (Formula) or manually input the desired value.

1. Create a virtual field that will contain your formula.
2. Add a header and footer in your DataPage and disable the HTML editor on the footer.
3. In the footer put the following code:

document.querySelector("input[id*='VIRTUAL_FIELD_ID']").onchange = function() {myFunction()};

function myFunction() {

var virtual_val = document.querySelector("input[id*='VIRTUAL_FIELD_ID']").value; 
document.querySelector("input[id*='FIELD_ID']").value = virtual_val;

note: The field that is going to be used for the "field_id" will be the actual field that will store the calculation.
