knockout js subscribe

What ia m trying to do is i have 4 text boxes 2 in each row. like this

Original1 Difference1
Original2 Differnece2
when the page loads original1 and original2 will have default values and differnece1 and difference2 should be calculates default values subtracted from current original values. I got this part to working.
When you change the value for differnece1 orginal1 should be automatcillay added with the differnence1, same for original2 also. I have tried to use subscribe on differnces, it did not get fired. This is what i ahe tried.


vmp.modify = {

	vm : {

		originalValue1 : ko.observable("defalutValue1"),
		differnece1 : ko.observable(),
		originalValue2 : ko.observable("defalutValue2"),
		differnece2 : ko.observable(),

	},
	init : function() {

		
		vm.differnece1 = ko.computed({
			read : function() {
				var differnece1 = defalutValue1 - originalValue1;
				return differnece1;
			}

		});
		vm.differnece2 = ko.computed({
			read : function() {
				var differnece2 = defalutValue2 - originalValue2;
				return differnece2;
			}
		});
vm.differnece1.subscribe(function(difference) {
			vm.originalValue1 = ko.computed({
				read : function() {
					var originalValue1 = originalValue1 + difference;
					return originalValue1;
				}

			});
		}.bind(this));
		vm.differnece2.subscribe(function(difference) {
			vm.originalValue2 = ko.computed({
				read : function() {
					var originalValue1 = originalValue2 + difference;
					return originalValue2;
				}
			});
		}.bind(this));
		ko.bindingHandlers.customerBinder = {
			init : function(element, valueAccessor, allBindingsAccessor,
					context) {
				var $el = $(element), thisValue = $el.val() || $el.text();

				valueAccessor()(thisValue);
			}
		};
		ko.applyBindings(vmp.modify.vm, $('#formId')[0]);
	}

};

I believe you're over complicating your view model unless there's something i'm missing....

demo: http://jsbin.com/pakaje/1/edit?html,js,output

Your view model should be this simple:

var vm = {};

$(function() {
  vm.vals = [45,88];
  vm.orig1 = ko.observable(vm.vals[0]);
  vm.orig2 = ko.observable(vm.vals[1]);
  
  vm.calc1 = ko.computed(function() {
    return vm.vals[0]-vm.orig1();
  });
  vm.calc2 = ko.computed(function() {
    return vm.vals[1]-vm.orig2();
  });
  
  ko.applyBindings(vm);
});

Actually what i want is, if the original value gets changed difference should change and if the difference gets changed original value should get changed.
Suppose on page load if the original value is 100 and change will be zero.
when the user changes the original value to 200 difference should be 100 i got that part working.
Now the page is loaded with original value of 100, if the user enters a value in difference as 100, original value should automatically become 200.

Ah ok. Then your observables need to be writable as well but you don't need any observables

I'll test and get back to you as we want to avoid any possible recursion

you only have one set of observables and another set of writable pureComputed observables:

var vm = {};

$(function() {
  vm.vals = [45,88];
  vm.orig1 = ko.observable(vm.vals[0]);
  vm.orig2 = ko.observable(vm.vals[1]);

  vm.calc1 = ko.pureComputed({
    read: function() {
      return vm.vals[0]-vm.orig1();    
    },
    write: function(value) {
      // update the orig1 with the difference
      vm.orig1(vm.vals[0]*1+value*1);
    }
  });

  vm.calc2 = ko.pureComputed({
    read: function() {
      return vm.vals[1]-vm.orig2();
    },
    write: function(value) {
      // update the orig1 with the difference
      vm.orig2(vm.vals[1]*1+value*1);
    }
  });

  ko.applyBindings(vm);
});

Thank you for giving it with example, i am not sure how to give more points, i fell like it is definitely more than 500 points.
