Current Measure displayed in subtitle?


I have a graph with a couple measures the user can select but i would like to (if possible) have the name of the selected measure in the sub title of the graph. Is this possible?

Yes, But you need some work around in script with Island table..

Before develop something, think If placed (The Right information | To the right people | At the Right time | In the Right place | With the Right context)

How you are selecting Measure?

Is it Alternate Measure or something?

I'll invite not to use alternative measure to achieve this but as follow:

Let's assume you have 3 measures :

1) sum(measure1)

2) sum(measure2)

3) sum(measure3)

first thing to do :

in the script, create a new table:


load * inline [

Measure, MeasureID

Measure1, 1

Measure2, 2

Measure3, 3


Once done, on your presentation, add the new field Measure as a filter :

Now, in you chart, you'll only ONE MEASURE:

if(MeasureID=1, sum(measure1),




And as a title: ='The selected measure is : '&Measure

The user will only have to choose a Measure from the filter to have it shown in the graph.

Hope this was clear
