Clearing alternate state field

Hi all,

I have a button with a clear field action. Lets say I want to clear field 'ID', that is state of 'State1', how do I do it? I tried having it as {State1}(ID) but it didnt work. 

Much help is appreciated. Thank you so much.

If you're using Qlikview you can specify on the Actions tab of the buttons properties window to which state the action should apply.

Hi, 
I am using Qlik Sense, with the button from the dashboard bundle.  There are no triggers.

Is using an extension the only way of achieving this?

What are you using to clear field in Qliksense Is this an Extension object?

Why do you need an clear button in Qliksense because you have all the field selection at top in Qliksense and you can clear from there.

Thanks for your reply. I am using the button object from the Qlik Sense dashboard bundle.

The reason I am using a button instead of the top selections panel is simple. I have a total of 8 alternate state filters, so if I were to select them all, the top panel would have a very long list of alternate state which would block my interface. It also takes an extra click to click at the top panel, which my users do not want.

Instead, I would like to have a clear button below each alternate state filter panel, so that the users can clear the field from the interface itself rather than the top selections panel.

I have also attached a picture for your reference. Below each alternate state filter(Range1,Range2...) is the current selections of that range. Further down of the current selections is the clear button, which my goal is to be able to clear each range. Any ideas on how I can do this?

Thank you so much.
