Cumulative Functoids aggregate all supplied values during execution of a map. For example the ‘Cumulative Sum’ functoid sums all values of a field into a single output value, thus for example you could easily work out the total order value from a set of order lines.
Cumulative Functoid scope parameter behaves slightly differently from other Functoids. The optional scope input, specified by dragging a link to the top of the functoid, is used to determine the scope of the aggregation (a separate aggregation is maintained per scope.) The scope can be any input node or any calculated value, including output from another Functoid. If the scope is not specified, it is taken as Global, and all instances within the document (subject to the Page scope) are aggregated.
Blue Integrator comes with an array of Date/Time Functoids, for returning the current date or time, parsing, formatting, comparing and arithmetic. These Functoids are grouped under the Date/Time and Date/Time Comparison headings.
Blue Integrator defines AND, OR, NOT and Exists Functoids allowing the combination of logical / boolean values. The AND and OR Functoids take an unlimited number of boolean arguments (e.g. from Comparison Functoids, document elements or other Logical Functoids), the NOT functoid takes a single boolean argument, and the Exists Functoid takes a single scope argument. All these Functoids return a single boolean value.
Blue Integrator provides a number of Functoids for numeric arithmetic and scientific function operations.
|NOTE The addition and multiplication functoids can take any number of parameters.|
Blue Integrator provides an array of Functoids to support string operations.
All string indexes are 1-based, that is 1 is the index of the first character.
|NOTE The Concatenate Functoid, one of the most frequently used as it concatenates strings or string representations together, can take any number of parameters.|
