Dynamic Calculated Form Fields ! - ITZAP - Jun 3rd, 2014

So glad to hear that Form Tools is under development once again ! Here is my Number 1 wish for inclusion in the next release ...

> Dynamic Real-time Calculated Form Fields

No, not a Submission Pre-Parser calc that executes only upon pressing the Submit or Update button.
This would be a Javascript running on both Web Form and the backend Form Tools Submission Admin Panel so that Calculated Fields update live in real-time as figures are entered into the other relevant fields.

Here are examples of Calculated Form Fields in action :

  2. http://www.simfatic.com/
There are so many potential uses for this !

Before I choose Form Tools I thought that this was already a function. I obviously misunderstood the filters feature for the views.
