Setting a value on a rollup field is impossible in JavaScript in CRM 2015. You can’t refresh the field individually without clicking the Refresh button — which can be a pain for users if you have several rollup fields to recalculate.

function setValueOnRollup(field, value) {
//unsupported way of putting a value in the calculated field
//DOES NOT update the value in CRM, only on the display
$('#' + field).find('.rollup').find('span')[0].textContent = value;

So if you wanted to use it on a form, put setValueOnRollup(‘yourfieldhere’, ‘100.00’)
