OK, simple question. I have this custom form:

	function TestForm() {
		$fields = new FieldSet(
			new TextField('NumA', 'Number A'),
			new TextField('NumB', 'Number B')
		$actions = new FieldSet(
			new FormAction('doSubmitNumbers', 'Calculate')

		$form = new Form(
		return $form;

The only thing I want the function doSubmitNumbers to do, is to perform some calculation (say, add NumA and NumB) and show the result on the page when it redirects back. I know how I would use doSubmitNumbers to save to the database, but I actually don't want to save to the database, just show the result of the calculation... How would I go forward?


Edit: wording.

doSubmitNumbers doesn't save anything to the database per se, what its used for is "Run doSubmitNumbers() when you have submitted the form" as to what doSubmitNumbers() does - it could write the DB or it could in your case be used to redirect the user and add numbers
