Chart title to reference the measure being viewed

I have a chart with a measure and 2 alternative measures.  I would like to make the chart title reference the measure being selected so the user would know what they are viewing.  Can this be incorporated in the title as an expression?

That's not possible because there is no function which could query which expression is active.

Alternatives could be to transfer these expression into calculated dimensions which could be queried per getcurrentfield() or probably easier to use variables as expression which are switched per selections or variables and where the selection - getfieldselection() - or the variable-value could be used for the title.

I think this will be helpful for you: User Controlled Charts In QlikView

Thanks!  I'll look into your suggestions.

Do you know if there is a way to reference the Y-axis?  Same intent, but phrasing it differently.

I think it's the same like above - by using dimension-groups or variables you could otherwise you couldn't.
