Re: Creating dynamic measure selection in Qliksense

Hi Sowmya,

Please find the modified app.

The user need to select the measure from the drop down list. Depending on the selection the measure changes.

Please note I have used Variable extension for this.

I don't know whether you already have it. But anyway am attaching the extension as well.

Hope this helps.

Thanks,

Uday

Hi Thanks,

Hi-I have a invalid dimension error. Check out the attached screenshot.

I had the same error when I was going through the sample qvfs from the qlik community for dynamic dimensions.

Any idea why this is happening?

Thnx in advance

Re: Creating dynamic measure selection in Qliksense

Yes!

The error screenshot is from the qvf you uploaded.

My bad- I didn't mention where it is from.

I can see the if condition using a cyclic expression variable you have created. I guess what i am not able to see are the selections.

Attaching the screenshot again. Is there something i need to create in the script editor to see the "invalid visualisation"

Re: Creating dynamic measure selection in Qliksense

Sowmya,

I recommend making use of the embedded functionality of Qlik Sense and use the alternative measures feature mentioned above. 

It's not ideal to have a user click the exploration menu every time to switch the measure, but the alternative is to complicate your app with a customized function.  I've tried this and it's usually resulted in cost to performance, development time, and administration.  In my opinion, it hasn't been worth it when the out of the box functionality gets you close to what you need.

Thanks a lot. This helps immensely.

The variable extension seems very powerful.

Any resources to get started on with learning about more such powerful techniques in Sense?

I frequent the Qlik Sense Help page here: https://help.qlik.com/en-US/sense/2.2/Content/Home.htm

The search works well and make sure you're in the right version in the upper right corner of the page.
