I would like to set up a solution similar to web-blinds.  For example if you goto:
Web-Blinds
You can then set a width and drop and it will give a price, can magento do this, or would i have to provide a dropdown with 10cm-50cm, 51cm-100cm for both drop and width?  It would be much prefered to do it almost identically to web-blinds as then we would have the information on hand to allow manufacturing to immediately start the process without having to contact the customer again.

This functionality is native to Magento. You can do this with Custom Options. Check out this blog post and video.

Thank you for your prompt reply, but looking at Custom Options I don’t think that actually fulfils what I need.

As I understand it with custom fields, if I set a text box it applies an extra price if they fill the box and not if they don’t, it doesn’t take the value and do a calculation.

What I need is a way for it to take that value and add say £5 if it is between 1m and 1.5m and add £10 if it is between 1.5m and 2m etc.

I know I could do that with drop downs, but I also need to collect the actual measurement so that if the customer orders the blind can be made with their specified width and drop.

If you look on the link I provided and put in various values, you will see if you put in a small blind size it will be cheaper than if you put in a large blind size.

This added functionality will require customization.
