Calculated values give you the option to add measures that were missing in the original data. They can be saved and restored within the report. This feature is available for "json"
, "csv"
and "api"
data source types. Each calculated measure is defined inside the measures
property of the SliceObject.
This guide contains the following sections:
The calculated measure has the following properties:
Property/Type  Description 

uniqueName String 
The measure’s unique name. This property will be used as an identifier for the measure inside Flexmonster and as an identifier to remove the measure via API. 
formula String 
Represents the formula. It can contain:

String 
optional The measure’s caption. 
String 
optional The measure’s grand total caption. 
active Boolean 
optional Indicates whether the measure will be selected for the report (true ) or not (false ). active: false can be useful if the measure has nondefault properties, but should not be selected for the grid or the chart.Default value: true . 
individual Boolean 
optional Defines whether the formula is calculated using raw values (true ) or using aggregated values (false ). Only for "csv" and "json" data source types.Default value: false . 
calculateNaN Boolean 
optional Defines whether the formula is calculated using NaN values (true ) or using null values (false ).Default value: true . 
format String 
optional The name of the number formatting that will be applied to the measure. Measure values can be formatted according to the number formatting defined in the report. All available number formattings are stored in the formats array in the report. More information about the number formatting part of the report can be found in the number formatting article. 
The example below illustrates how to define a calculated measure with the minimum price for each color:
slice: { rows: [ // Fields ], measures: [ // Other measures { formula: "min('Price')", uniqueName: "Min Price", }, ], }
See the example on JSFiddle.
The next example shows how to define a formula with two measures:
slice: { rows: [ // Fields ], measures: [ // Other measures { uniqueName: "Total Price", formula: "sum('Price') * sum('Quantity')", }, { uniqueName: "Top Category", formula: "average('Price') < 4000 and sum('Quantity') > 100", }, ], }
Try a live sample on JSFiddle.
You can apply conditional formatting to your calculated measure. For example:
report: { slice: { rows: [ // Fields ], measures: [ // Other measures { uniqueName: "Top Category", formula: "average('Price') < 4000 and sum('Quantity') > 100", }, ], }, conditions: [ { formula: "#value = 1", measure: "Top Category", format: { backgroundColor: "#66FF99", color: "#000000", fontFamily: "Arial", fontSize: "12px", }, }, ], }
See a live demo on JSFiddle.
To use a negative number in a formula, enclose the number in parentheses. For example:
slice: { rows: [ // Fields ], measures: [ // Other measures { formula: "(1) * sum('Price')", uniqueName: "Inverted Price", }, ], }
See the full code on JSFiddle.
You can specify number formatting for your calculated measure. For example:
report: { slice: { rows: [ // Fields ], measures: [ // Other measures { uniqueName: "% of Total Price", formula: "percent('Price') / 100", format: "price", }, ], }, formats: [ { name: "price", decimalPlaces: 2, isPercent: 2, }, ], }
Open the example on JSFiddle.
With the individual
property, the formula is calculated using raw values. For example, the formula sum('Price') * sum('Amount')
will be calculated like this:
individual
is true
: 174 * 36 + 225 * 44individual
is false
: (174 + 225) * (36 + 44)The following code snippet demonstrates how to use the individual
property:
slice: { rows: [ // Fields ], measures: [ // Other measures { uniqueName: "Overall price", formula: "sum('Price') * sum('Amount')", individual: true, }, ], }

.Use Add calculated value
in the Field List to add the calculated measure at runtime.
Calculated measures can be defined within the report or added via the addCalculatedMeasure() API call. To remove a calculated measure use the removeCalculatedMeasure() API call. removeAllCalculatedMeasures() removes all calculated measures.
