Current Selections in a Widget

I'm looking to list the current selections in a widget the same as can be done for listing dimensions, measures and variables in an app.

Dimension Example:

<li ng-repeat="dimension in dimensions" ng-bind="dimension.qMeta.title">

According to the documentation https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense-developer/September2018/Subsystems/Extensions/Content/Sense_Extens...

this should be possible.

I have navigated through the Engine API Explorer, but I cannot find the correct way to access "currentselections".

the page you are referring to describes stuff that is specific for widgets. You won’t find that in Engine API explorer.

Thanks Erik,

I understand what you mean by the specific widget information not being in the engine explorer, however, I was able to see properties of dimensions, measures, sheets, and current slections in the Engine API Explorer that are not easily found in the Qlik documentation.  With this, I was able to pull that detail into a table Widget.  Unfortunately, I have not been successful with "CurrentSelection".

By comparison (<li ng-repeat="dimension in dimensions" ng-bind="dimension.qMeta.title">), this or a variation of it should work...

<li ng-repeat="CurrentSelection in CurrentSelections" ng-bind="CurrentSelection.qSelectionObject.qSelections.qSelected">
