Using Expressions

To better understand how expressions and operators can be chained together to create more complex behaviors, follow the examples below.
For more information on the subject, see About Expressions and About Functions.

Calculator

To build a simple calculator, follow the procedure below.

Step

Action

1

Open your already existing application or start a new one.

2

Add two textboxes with a label in between.
Change the name of the controls as follows:
First textbox: FirstNumber
Label: +
Second texbox: SecondNumber

3

Add another label after the second textbox.
Change the name to Sum.

Input validation

To build a simple input validation, follow the procedure below.

Step

Action

1

Open your already existing application or start a new one.

Sum of a column

To return the sum of a specified column of a table bound to Orchestrator output, follow the procedure below.
In this example we will retrieve the sum of a column called Age, containing the age of all people listed in the table.

Step

Action

Open your already existing application or start a new one.

2

Create a table with a column called Age.

3

Bound the table column to an Orchestrator output by selecting it in the Data Source property. In this example we will pick a source called Out.out_datatable.

4

Create a label and write SUM(AGE): in the Text property.

5

Create a second label right next to the first one and pick the Sum function and out.datable.Age from the Resources list.=Sum(out_datatable.Age) in the Text property.
