Dealing with values

Retrieving Computed Value

Value property in the SfCalculator control is used to retrieve the computed value from the expressions in Calculator. It is a read-only decimal property. It can also be set to display a decimal value as computed value.


<TextBlock Text="{Binding ElementName=calculator,Path=Value}"/>

<input:SfCalculator x:Name="calculator"/>

decimal value = calculator.Value;
Dim calculator As New SfCalculator()

Displaying a Default Value

DefaultValue property is set to display a default value in the input pane of SfCalculator control. It is a decimal property.

calculator.DefaultValue = 34.67M;
calculator.DefaultValue = 34.67D

Showing Text in Display Panel

DisplayText property is set to display a text in the display pane of SfCalculator control.

<input:SfCalculator x:Name="calculator" DisplayText="Display Text"/>
calculator.DisplayText = "DisplayText";
calculator.DisplayText = "DisplayText"

Displaying an Expression

Expression property is used to get the mathematical expression that produced the evaluated value in SfCalculator. Expression can also set to any string property but it is not evaluated to produce result. It is just displayed in the pane.


<TextBlock Text="{Binding ElementName=calculator,Path=Expression}"/>

<input:SfCalculator x:Name="calculator" Expression="1+2+3+4"/>

calculator.Expression = "1+2+3+4";

string expression = calculator.Expression;
calculator.Expression = "1+2+3+4"

Dim expression As String = calculator.Expression
