Is it possible to "spy" a formula from web page ?

Hi,

 

I'm creating an app to generate codes from dates range. I obtained the following result :

It works pretty well but now, I need to make sure that the formula I use is not visible from the web page.

The formula is currently calculated from a label. Is it possible for the user to know how the value is calculated from examining the source code ?

In other words, is it possible to find the formula I entered into the label as follows:

Thank you in advance for your help !

Not likely.  The formulas are all evaluated in the player app and then are rendered in their intended format (i.e. phone app or browser/html).  The only other way is to get the App file itself, but unless someone has access to the edit function of app, they would not be able to do this (AFAIK).

 

I hope this is helpful for you.
