custom function for the rules editor

I tried creating a custom function for the rules editor using the doc example, but the side panel didn’t contain the functions:

Do I need to initialize it? There is a  some form of hook that is missing here…

You can create a client-lib for your adaptive form and create a custom js file. Once you assign the clientLib to Adaptive Form, all the functions that you define within it should appear in the Rule editor. Please see my screenshots.

A client library has been created respectively but the issue I am having is that the custom function is not appearing on the touch UI rules editor sidebar. 

I used the following jsdoc sample:

"=============================="

var area;
//Some codes later
/** */
area = function(len) {
    return len*len;
};

"=============================="

but it is not working.

Hi,

1. Could you move the package to apps/ folder for once and try.

2. Is the client lib added to guideContainer property in AF authoring.

Please try this once. This should work fine.

Posting for future reference. I faced same issue but when I hard reload my form editor, function appears. Also, if I change something in custom JS, function will disappear from dropdown. I again hard reload and it will show.
