Triggering calculated field onChange?

Jan 15, 2016 at 12:41 AM
I'm using Workflow Tools to have rollup fields be automatically recalc'd on data change, and that's working perfectly. What I'm wondering is, is there any way to do this for calculated fields as well? (Instead of them triggering onSave)?

You Need to Trigger the Field, you use in the calculation of the calculated Field,
cause the calculated Field only changes if the Fields Used in the calculation changes.

Sorry - I'm not entirely clear on your response. In my experience, when I change one of the fields used in the calculated field, the calculated field only changes after I save. Is that not correct? That's the behaviour I'm seeing...

Hi all, thanks for your comments.
teleute: your behavior is the correct one. from the Architecture point of view, think that the Calculated fields are Transact SQL Functions, executed where you make a query on this entities, so you need to refresh the form to see the new value.
hope this helps ;)

kind regards,
