Calculated “hidden” Fields
The calculated fields can be “hidden” fields. This way the calculated values of those “hidden” fields won’t be displayed in the form. This is useful for using intermediate calculated values or for showing the calculated values only into the email.
Equations / formulas Format
Here are some sample formulas that can be used in the math formula feature:
With simple mathematical operations:
fieldname1 + fieldname2 fieldname1 * fieldname2 fieldname1 / fieldname2 fieldname1 - fieldname2
With multiple fields and fields grouping included:
fieldname1 * ( fieldname2 + fieldname3 )
There is a huge number of equations that can’t be recreated with simple mathematical operators, or the operations listed above, requiring “IF” conditions, here is a sample of the formula that can be used in that case:
` if(fieldname3 > 100) return fieldname1+fieldname2; if(fieldname3 <= 100) return fieldname1*fieldname2; `
var calculatedValue = 0; //Your code here return calculatedValue;
…. and note that the return value of that function will be the value assigned to the calculated field. More info here: https://kb.softdiscover.com/docs/zigaform-wordpress-cost-estimator/create-form/math-calculation/
