As Callouts are attached to a field, you can use the field name with the prefix 'inp' to retrieve the run time value. Based upon that, you can do manipulations. But using this method, restrict the usage of that callout to a particular field. Say for instance I have a same logic to be implemented across five different fields, then I have to write 5 different callout, as we are hard coding the field names. But there is also a method provided to retrieve the last changed field and then using that, you can retrieve that value. I have provided below the code, that retrieves the name of the last changed field and then the v…
