I would like to sum up the value of inputs in my repeating group without having to use my database. I would like to do the calculation as soon as the page loads, pulling existing values from a database and not have to enter in values manually into the input boxes for this to happen. When I change the values in any of the boxes, the sum should automatically recalculate accordingly.
There will be hundreds of these values in my app, so I want to do all of this on the front end of my app.
In the example below, the sum should be 35.
Ive built this using the instructions in this thread, and Ive managed to get it to work. However, the solution is not sufficient for me as I have to enter in all the values manually before the summation works, even if there were preexisting values in the inputs from my database (in my image above, the inputs are filled in but the summation does not display anything).
My issue is that for some reason, the Bubble workflow only allows me to access the inputs when I make a workflow for an element. It does not allow me to access my inputs when I create a “upon page load” workflow, or any of the workflows in the general section for that matter.
Does anyone know how I can get around this issue?
