    how to send user selected values to a script

    Description of the Requirement:

    I have two dropdowns – 
    First Dropdown named X -contains values 5,10,15
    Second Dropdown named Y – contains values 2,4,6
    I have to calculate & show the value “SUM” where SUM = X+Y and SUM is calculated for the user selected value of X & Y

    How do I do this? How to perform calculation on user selected value in the dropdown (property control)

    create 3 properties, first one (drop down list for the first number) ,second one (drop down list for second number) ,and third prop for label. Create a button action control too

    Inside script add these lines :

    propLabel = "Sum : "  + (Document.Properties("propFirstValue") + Document.Properties("propSecondValue"))

    print propLabel // this print helps u for testing, it prints the o/p on console.

    Try this and let me know the results.

    as siva said, u have to use 3properties. 3rd property = prop1 + prop2.

    on text area show it like Sum = <controltype = label with value = 3rd property>

    Another way is to use calculated column and show it for all rows in the data table.

    try like this

    X:     OneTwoThree   Y : FourFiveSix          9

    script code :

    a= Document.Properties["propOne"]
    b= Document.Properties["propTwo"]
    print Document.Properties["propLabel"]



    print Document.Properties["propLabel"]

    try this and let me know. Thanks.
