Re: QlikSense modifiable

qsVariable doesn't support validation checks on input text boxes which is a weakness.

You could look to validate your variable before you use it with an If statement and a default value to replace invalid data type or if you have to selct a particular value perhaps switch to a drop down or slider mode of input which is also supported in qsVariable.

Re: QlikSense modifiable

I've installed the extension SR_InputBox, but it doesn't allow me to set it content with a variable value.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Set your default value on load something like

SET vYourDate=Today();

That way even if blank your charts using the variable will have a value to work with.
