Discussion board where members can get started with Qlik Sense.
I have a table with 3 columns, state, region, and sale_value. I need to show the map with states. I also need to set the region of the map with different color.
I use state as my dimension, and I created map color with expression:
If ( Region= 'west', red(),
If ( Region = 'east', green(),
if ( Region = 'south', blue(),
if (Region = 'north', yellow(), cyan())
How could I create an interactive legend of region as the following?
I also need to put the legend on top of the map.
Any suggestion is appreciated!
Solved! Go to Solution.
It's not possible to place objects on top of each other in Qlik Sense.

In other BI tool, like Tableau, we can set a layer as float to overlay two layers. Hopefully Qlik Sense has similar feature in the future.
As you must be knowing, tableau is not responsive enough to adjust itself to different screen resolutions. I have intensively worked on tableau and I know hen the pit falls are.
I really think qlik not allowing the enduser to overlay objects is a good thing as it behaves more responsive and resolution friendly. As a work around, you can always go with an extension which can implement what you are looking for.
Sangram, thanks for your help!
Is there any free license extension for map legend?
Or do the Qlik users have to implement the extension themselves?
I am not sure if there is anything out there already.
May be building one which fit your requirement is the best workaround.
