Is there a way to hide the labels in a table in qliksense ?

Hi Friends,

I am trying to hide the labels with a table in qliksense. In the given screenshot, I don't want  the highlighted "SiteType" and "# Of Sites" to show up. In qlikview, this was just as easy as giving a space character in the 'label' field corresponding to any dimension or expression, but qliksense doesn't behave that way.

Any clue or workaround ?

If it's just those two measures why not display them as 2 KPIs

Cannot completely hid the labels but if you give any special character instead of Site Type

like =!, =@ or =# it will give label as -

But unfortunately cannot hide it.

If it is a dimension like your first column, I usually use "Search" as the column name as there is a search icon there.

For expressions, I will use "." (one point).

I hate this too. I want to have space as the name sometimes but so far we have to live with it...

Good luck!

Fei.

Putting Space ' ' at labes used to work with versions below than 3.0 .

It doesn't work in later versions.

Thanks for the suggetion Andy.

Well, this itself was not the requirement. I ran into this problem while I was trying to get around another limitation.

I wanted to show a stacked bar with just two values (Given a choice I would have very well used a pie/doughnut chart for this use case but sometimes the users are very specific). As you know, qliksense wouldn't show the values inside the segments of a stack which left me with an idea to show the split in a small table above the chart as shown below. That is when I found that you cannot do away with the labels

Anyway, thanks to that. I found an even cleaner way to show the split info above the chart using a text object by embedding colored special characters and expressions with in. My colleague helped me with that. The new solution is shown below.

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.

Looks very nice.

Could you have put the text with sub totals into the sub title of your chart, include a legend and made the title # of Sites removing the need for the axis label.

Please mark any replies as either HELPFULL/CORRECT.

Looking more closely it looks like your colour assignment is the wrong way round in your text box compared to your chart.  I'd use the built in legend as you will never know when the palate might flip based on values being returned in your chart.

Hi Vishnu,

Try to give a text colour 'white' to Site type and #of Site field names .This is not exact solution but that two names won't be visible.
