# Using Logic in your Pricing Templates

**Learn how to add if/then logic to your products within shopVOX**

**(Advanced Users Only)**

Here is a list of what operators that can be used in "Item Formula" and "Filters".

**Numeric Pricing Attributes in Filter Field**

Now you can use the "Numeric" Attributes in the Filter field to evaluation to a Boolean value of Yes/No and not just in Item Formula.

Example:If you have a numeric pricing attribute called "Sides", in the filter field you can add this logical expression

Sides > 1

And if the Sides value you entered is 2, then the above filter will return "True".

**Conditional (Ternary) Operator**

Now you can use a form of if / then / else in Item Formula fields and the syntax is like below.

(Sides > 1) ? 2 : 1;

Where "Sides" is a numeric attribute and if that condition is true, then the value is 2 if not 1

**Arithmetic Operators:**

**Comparison and Logical Operators:**

**Assignment Operators:**

#### Math Methods:

**Math.round(x)**- Rounds x to the nearest integer**Math.abs(x)**- Returns the absolute value of x**Math.ceil(x)**- Returns x, rounded upwards to the nearest integer**Math.exp(x)**- Returns x, rounded upwards to the nearest integer**Math.floor(x) -**Returns x, rounded downwards to the nearest integer**Math.max(x,y,z,...)**- Returns the number with the highest value**Math.min(x,y,z,...) -**Returns the number with the lowest value**Math.pow(x,y)**- Returns the value of x to the power of y**Math.trunc(x) -**Returns the integer part of a number (x)

#### Other System Variables:

**Area**- You can add this to your pricing attributes in a Pricing Template.

>>> These two have special behaviors. Because if you have a material with perimeter as its formula definition then this value will override what ever that perimeter calculation comes to. Same with Area, if you add this as a "Pricing attribute" to your pricing template what ever value is entered here will supersede the height*width calculate value.

Generally Area is used as a pricing attribute when you calculate Products like vehicle wraps etc., where you want to charge for the total area of different panels put together.**svItem_sheet_height**

>>> this variable will return what ever the height of the material is that you picked to do some math in item formula field in pricing templates of shopVOX**svItem_sheet_width**

>>> this variable will return what ever the width of the material is that you picked to do some math in item formula field in pricing templates of shopVOX.-
**svLineItem_qty**

>>> this variable will return the current line item qty, which can be used to do some calculations like roundup or so.
