After succeding in getting value from enum, I'm now trying to set a calculated value into an enum

I'm using 
workItem.setValue(attributeId, enumLiteral);

It works, but the value isn't changed on the fly. It is changed only after saving the workitem.
Is it possible to make it change on the fly when we change the value of another enum without saving the WI ? 

Thank you for your help

Hi Sany,

instead of workItem.setValue, try applying the calculated value script directly onto the attribute, just return the value from the script.  the returned value would directly get set onto the attribute then.  this should show the changes as soon as the dependent attribute is changed.

if you are using the same script to set multiple enum attributes, you could try a conditional return as in :
    if (attributeId === "enumattributeid_1")
         return "literalidapplicablefor_1"
    if (attributeId === "enumattributeid_2")
         return "literalidapplicablefor_2"
so on...
