## How to show the max date with different color in charts?

Hi,

I am trying to show the max quarter(date) with a different color in my bar chart. But, I am new to Qlik Sense scripting and I unfortunately i could find no way. Does anybody know how to do that? I my model, i could only show the selected quarter with different color. But, by default i would like to show the max quarter with red color. I also still want to keep the preexisting functionality (When any other quarter is selected it should show the selected one with different color). You could find the screenshot below:

The color expression I use is like this:

 if(getselectedcount(Dönem)>0, if(isnull(only(Dönem)),rgb(16,26,42),rgb(239,38,54)),if(isnull(only(Dönem)),rgb(239,38,54),rgb(16,26,42)))

Best Regards,

Oytun

Sorry, I made a slight mistake... try this:

If(GetSelectedCount(Donem) = 0, If(Donem = MaxString(TOTAL Donem), RGB(239, 38, 54)), If(IsNull(Only(Dönem)), RGB(16,26,42), RGB(239,38,54)))

May be something like this (Assuming Donem is the quarter field here)

If(GetSelectedCount(Donem) = 0, If(Donem = MaxString(Donem), RGB(239, 38, 54)), If(IsNull(Only(Dönem)), RGB(16,26,42), RGB(239,38,54)))

Hi Sunny,

Thanks a lot for your reply. I tried the formula you suggest but unfortunately I get the screenshot below

By the way, i only used that expression for the first bar chart and it all become red.

Can you check what you get when you put MaxString(Donem) in a KPI object? Does it give you the maximum Donem?
