ability to enter simple arithmetical formula in numeric field

in a numeric field, in input mode, having the possibility to enter for example 5+7+3.45+8.99 and have Notes natively compute the value would be very handy and make numbers input much faster

    Is this for the Notes client or in Xpages? Your idea is listed in "Domino Designer & XPages & App Dev"


    If you mean the Notes this functionality already exists...

    You can run any kind of formula -- including those arithmetical operations in any field beside richtext fields.


    If you press Shift-F9 the expression you entered will be evaluated. This works for all type of formulas.


    This feature is in Notes for a very long time, but I guess not well documented.

    I am using it all the time and it is very helpful.


    For example @ConfigFile gives you the path to the current notes.ini

    For calculations I am using it all the time as well.
