[LOGGED] Dynamic input field calculator
This is a request for a built in calculator to be a dynamic feature of numeric inputs. So that every input box can solve arithmetic problems just by entering in the equation and pressing enter. It would be great if it was something like- click on the box and enter a problem like .8/3 and press enter.
It has the potential to save a significant amount of time and greatly speed up workflow. It eliminates the need of a calculator for complex problems and particularly for accurately updating the parameters of a complex patch.
Often I am dropping in a calculator actor into a patch or working with a calculator app or a separate device on my desk and then transferring the result to an input parameter. It would be a great enhancement to be able to solve the calculation directly in an input field.
As an example it is implemented in Blender 3D.
I agree complety. I think that every single input field should have the option to do calculations. Izzy map / etc should also have this feature, it is a great way if you are on the job to do a quick calculation / quickly map something by solving it with some math :)
Resolume has this feature and it is great !

Looks like this library would do the job.
We'll add it to the feature requests.
