Dynamic Date Dimension

Hi,

i would like to build a 'dynamic date dimension' within a line chart.

What do i mean with that:
You can see that in the qlik showroom for line charts (top left chart).
By default you see the x-axis divided into years. Only if you scroll down with the mous you will see the single months and later the single dates.

When i take a date dimension and build a line chart like this it shows by default the first date of the month (screen 2).

Can anybody tell me how to format it nicely like in the showroom?

The Line Chart example seems to imply that you only have a few date values which is why they are showing the actual data values. The one from the showcase site very likely has hundreds of values so they are rolled up in time as the line chart will do for time values.

Does your line chart shows all the dates present in the dataset?

If yes, try to resize the line chart and make it smaller. May be it can show year->month->date on scrolling.
