In Version 7... Lets Consider I have 3 fields called "basic", "tac_perc" and "tac_amt"..

And the calculation goes like this: Basic: 1000 TAC %: 20 TAC Amount: 200

(i.e) 20 % on basic will be my TAC amount which is 200..

(Or) if u had entered 200 in tac_amount then 20 will be calculated as TAC %...

Now I have written 2 onchange functions: [Which is working good]

  1. onchange_percent: which calculates n give me TAC amount
  2. onchange_amount: which calculates n give me TAC %..

    <field name="tac_perc" on_change="onchange_percent(basic, tac_perc)"/>

    <field name="tac_amt" on_change="onchange_amount(basic, tac_amt)"/>

So When I enter 10% in "tac_perc" field, It calls the onchange_percent, which will calculate and populates the value to "tac_amount", but then again since "tac_amount" field is also having onchange method [onchange_amount], it then executes n returns the value to "tac_perc".. and the process continues...
