Next value button

Hi,

I was wondering if it is possible to set an expression to the button extension to allow my data set to skip to the next value in a field.

So I have a list of names with different KPI's showing. I would like to be able to click on a button to skip to the next person in the list and show the KPI of the this person.

It does not necessarily have to be the button extension, I am mainly looking for any simple solution to navigate through a list of people.

I'm not aware of an extension that can do this. There is an extension to loop over values of a dimension: https://github.com/BillMarkham/Qlik-Sense-Extension-Play-Button. That might work with a large enough interval setting or qlik the play and pause buttons every time.

Or perhaps using Ctrl+Click in a filter pane to select the next value in the list works good enough.

Thank you for your response!

Unfortunately the timer loop does not seem to be the solution I am looking for, as I'd have to continuously click pause every time after the next value. I am trying to make it work very efficiently.

For the Ctrl+Click idea, could you explain a little bit more on detail on how to do this? I tried using the combination, but no changes seem to occur.

Thank you for your time!

See this video: ttps://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/September2017/Content/Videos/Videos-making-selections-visualization...‌. It explains the ctrl+click option too.

Thanks for your input!

This can indeed function as a temporary solution, however I hope to find an expression to do this by just clicking a button

Thanks,

However that is the button extension that I was mentioning in my initial message

The only thing I need now is an expression for the button to instruct it to continue in the order of the field,

In Button:

May be like this:

=Getfieldselections(Name)+1

Sort your Name field data,

In KPI, may be like:

=Sum({<Name = {"=getfieldselections(Name)+1"}>}Sales)

Thank you very much for your input.

Unfortunately I have not been able to use the suggestion.

I tried using it in multiple adaptations, but nothing seems to change when clicking the button.

This might of course also be due to my own wrong doing, but I feel I have tried most options.
