Motivation[edit]

Frequently a form must display the total of a column. This can be accomplished using the bind function in the model.

Sample my-data.xml instance file[edit]

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<Data>
   <Item>
      <Description>Furniture</Description>
      <Amount>1000</Amount>
   </Item>
   <Item>
      <Description>Dock</Description>
      <Amount>2000</Amount>
   </Item>
   <Item>
      <Description>Boat</Description>
      <Amount>3000</Amount>
   </Item>
   <Item>
      <Description>Lawn equipment</Description>
      <Amount>4000</Amount>
   </Item>
   <Item>
      <Description>Hot tub</Description>
      <Amount>5000</Amount>
   </Item>
   <Total>15000</Total>
</Data>

Discussion[edit]

This example uses div blocks for the table header and footer. The total will be updated each time the user tabs out of a field. New items are always added to the end but you can delete an existing item just by selecting it and pressing the "Delete item" button.
