How to do math operations with properties in M-Files

Extension Kit allows users to do math operations with two or more properties in M-Files. It is useful for math operations such as generating prices, discounts, summing operating costs, etc.

Our example contains Item which has Price per unit. Item Apple per 1 KG cost 2.5 EUR.

To successfully generate the invoice, we used the math operation in the Extension Kit Auto Properties module.

We chose apples as an Item and added 10 as Quantity. Price is automatically calculated by multiplication of Price per Unit and Quantity which we added in Invoice.
