Allow use of simple formulas in float fields

Formulas in Float Fields

This module allows the use of simple math formulas in integer/float fields (e.g. “=45 + 4/3 - 5 * (2 + 1)”).

  • Only supports parentheses, decimal points, thousands separators, and the operators “+”, “-”, “*”, and “/”

  • Will use the decimal point and thousands separator characters associated with your language

  • If the formula is valid, the result will be computed and displayed, and the formula will be stored for editing

  • If the formula is not valid, it’s retained in the field as text

Technical Details

  • Overloads web.form_widgets.FieldFloat (so it works for fields.integer & fields.float)

  • Uses the eval() JS function to evaluate the formula

  • Does not do any rounding (this is handled elsewhere)

  • Avoids code injection by applying strict regex to formula prior to eval() (e.g. “=alert(‘security’)” would not get evaluated)


To install this module, simply follow the standard install process.


No configuration is needed or possible.
