Create own @Formula binded to LotusScript, another @Formula (or Java?) function(s).

As you can do in Excel (Formula binded to VBA) and could do in 1-2-3.

Would allow many new functions that are currently not easy/possible to create.
Is also a way to be able to centralize @Formulas by creating an abstracted @Formula.


PS : I am not asking to have these working in view's (selection and columns @Formula's) :-)

    Interesting. We do this with double curly brackets around a variable, and then do JS around to that variable in YAML and JSON now. This could work even better if we took this paradigm and re-applied to @Formulas. This allow the use of an @Formula within a LotusScript w/o needing an eval variant, and should be pretty easy to embed in a SSJS JavaScript line, as well. @Formula(bla; bla);

    This is a very good idea that would improve @formula alot.

    This along with maybe a @Formula script library would be fantastic. I imagine it like this...


    Define the function (named or unnamed parameters):

    @DefineFunction("AddTwoNumbers"; @Do(

        a := @Argument("first");

        b := @Argument(2);

        @Return(a + b);

    ) );


    @DefineFunction("Name of function"; statement1; statement2; statement3);


    Call the function:

    result := @CallFunction('Name of function"; @Argument("first"; 2) : 3) ;

    REM { result = 5 }

    Would also allow to have a computed/computed for display field based upon a LotusScript function.
