Description

The CalcGen Generator calculates the result of an equation using up to five variables. Variables can either be constant values or references to other Attributes.


Example Equations: 

  • var1 + var2
  • (var2 / 15) - var3 + 3 * (var1)
  • (var4 * var3)  / var5 - var2 + var1


Example Variables:

  • 3
  • #{test.value1}


Parameter

The following parameters may be configured for the CalcGen Generator. Items with an asterisk* are required.   

  • equation* - The math equation to be evaluated.

  • numberFormat* - Defines how the generated number will be formatted. Examples: 0, 0.00. #.00, #,##.00, $#,##0.00.

  • var1 - The first of five possible variables to use in the equation.

  • var2 - The second of five possible variables to use in the equation.

  • var3 - The third of five possible variables to use in the equation.

  • var4 - The fourth of five possible variables to use in the equation.

  • var5 - The fifth of five possible variables to use in the equation.


Example 1: Using an Equation to Add to Values: Regular Pay and Overtime Pay

For this example, five Attributes have been added to calculate the regular pay, overtime pay, and total pay for individuals. 

  • fullName - Generates the full name of a person.
  • hours - Generates work hours ranging from 1 to 80.
  • regularPay - Generates regular pay based on the number of hours worked.
  • overtimePay - Generates overtime pay based o the number of hours worked.
  • totalPay - Adds the values generated for regular pay and overtime pay. 


hours Configuration

The RandomGen Generator has been configured for the hours Attribute to generate the number of work hours randing between 1 and 80. 


regularPay Configuration

The RegularPayGen Generator is used to configure the regular pay based on the number of worked hours. For this configuration, the hours Attribute is referenced by the hoursWorked Parameter.


overTime Pay Configuration

The OvertimePayGen Generator is used to configure the overtime pay based on the number of hours worked over the standard 40 hour work week. For this configuration, the hours Attribute is referenced by the hoursWorked Parameter.


totalPay Configuration

The CalcGen Generator is used to add the regular pay and overtime pay values together to determine the person's total pay based on hours worked. 


For this configuration, the following has been configured: 

  • equation = var1+var2
  • numberFormat = 0.00
  • var1 = References regularPay Attribute
  • var2 = References overtimePay Attrtibute
