Is it possible to do conditional image change in Qliksense

Hi All,

Is it possible to do conditional image change in Background color expression on Qliksense ?

EXample is below

Quarter, Amount

Q1, 20000

Q2, 30000

Q3, 10000

Q4, 15000

Based on above example i want to display if sum(Amount) <20000 then Down arrow mark else up arrow mark.

Thanks and regards,

Try to use like below, here  chr(9660) for up arrow and chr(9650)  for down arrow

if( Sum(Amount)<20000,  num(Sum(Amount),'$#,##0') & chr(9660) ,num(Sum(Amount),'$#,##0') & chr(9650)  )

and your measure text color expression as

if( Sum(Amount)<20000, red() ,Green() )

Can I display an image inside a text & image chart in Qliksense based on a condition.

for Eg : if country is selected as India in the filter then show India flag in the box else if country is selected as US in the filter then show US flag

Well, what I did to get this working was using a custom background layer for a map.  Since the text & image chart doesn't let me do conditional images. 

I first added some icons to a new Content Library (in the QMC)

Then I created a map, I choose None as default background, and then add a custom background-layer for the map.

And the expression (in the URL-field!) I used in the custom background layer was this:


=if(FirstSortedValue(WcsColliAfkeur, -datumtijd)='2', '/content/Icons/Weegschaal_ondergewicht.png',
if(FirstSortedValue(WcsColliAfkeur, -datumtijd)='3', '/content/Icons/Weegschaal_overgewicht.png',


It took some tweaking, but it worked.
