Calculation fileds

Hi,
I´m using iSilo 4.05 and iSiloX 4.01...
I want to use calculations. Something like this:
I enter a weight (w) and from this weight I want to claculate a formula =
((w*12*60)/500)
Is this possible in iSilo? If how?
All help we´ll be appriciated
Yours
Peter

Peter,
I could be wrong because iSilo does do a lot, but I don't think it does that kind of calculation. I'd try something like DocumentsToGo for the Excel component, or maybe one of the free Basic programming languages...
Take care!

Yah, I think that you misunderstand what iSilo is for. It is only for reading, not for calculating. Perhaps you have it confused with something else.

I don´t think that I misunderstand. But I know that I can make calculations wit javascript, forms and ASP.
I was hoping that it´s possible to transslate this with the help of iSiloX

Peter, do you have a website in particular that you want to convert that we can use for testing?

Peter, iSiloX doesn't support Javascript (yet), which is a client-based script language. But if you implement your calculations with a server-based language such as php or asp, then the results will also be given by the server and converted nicely by iSilo.

But your sugggestion means that I have to do the calculation online - and than download the result to my palm?
I want to do the calculations direct on the handheld

Peter,

AFAIK this is not possible with iSilo or Plucker. But as user Mobipocket already answered, the Mobipocket Reader might be able to do that and you should give it a try.

There is not really tutorials about that, as this is usual HTML (<form>, <input> tags, ...) and javascript.
You need the PRCGEN command line tool to compile these eBooks, or you can use the Mobipocket Creator to build them (use a blank publication and add the HTML files you manually write).

You can get the PRCGEN SDK documentation here:
http://www.mobipocket.com/en/Downloa...sPublisher.asp (freely downloadable).

We are going to publish a free version of the PRCGEN command line tool, along with the PRCGEN SDK. You will be able to use it to build free eBooks.

Please note that the PRCGEN SDK help describes the Javascript support in Mobipocket Reader 4.6. We now support functions, string objects, local/global variables, ... and ASP-like scripting in JavaScript (ECMA-262). You can also submit forms, and send them to a web server, via the Web Companion synchronization. This updated documentation will come soon.

in an HTML file, you make you calculator. here is an example:

--------------------------------------------------------

<p>Guess the solution :</p>

<form name="my_form" onsubmit="if (mytext.value==solution.value) alert ('correct'); else alert (try again!); return false;">

<input type="text" name="my_text"/>
<input type="hidden" name="solution" value="test" />
<input type="submit" value="Let's see"/>
</form>
<a onclick="alert ("the solution was : " + document.my_form.solution.value);">see answer</a>
--------------------------------------------------------

Create a blank publicaton with the Mobipocket Creator, add the HTML file, build the eBook. Use the eBook with Mobipocket Reader. Please note that using the javascript capabilities requires the Mobipocket Reader Pro on your PDA.

You can do calculators, currency converter (like the eNews you can subscribe to in the Web Companion, and you can also see the HTML code inside)....

So it´s enough to have Mobipocket Creator, I son´t need to have Mobipocket Publisher?
