Selections on Dimensions from Hypercube

Hy everyone,

I am trying to do some selections on dimensions grabbed with a hypercube.

I got all the dimensions from the hypercube which is surpressing 0 and missing values, and I created a JS Object to make everything easier to get/understand.

It looks something like this:


    Date: Array          //Dimension1

     0: 01.06.2018

     1: 02.06.2018

     2: 03.06.2018

     3: 04.06.2018


     Category: Array          //Dimension2

      0: Kat1

      1: Kat2

      2: Kat3


As I said I am trying to do some selections on these Dimensions so I used the following

app.field("Date").select( [0,1], true, true ).then(function(obj){               //this is an example so <Date> can be replaced with <Category>



The problem is that no Selection is applied, the Objects look the same. The promise is never got.

In the same Qlik Sense Mashup I also have some Fields. So I thought...lets try a the same method on a field and not on a dimension...and it totally worked...the Objects changed.

So I thought...maybe I am doing something wrong...maybe you can't do selections on Dimensions...so I went to Qlik Sense Desktop and with Master Items I created a filterPane for the same Dimensions and I believe using Qlik View, I filtered the Values showed by the Objects in my Page using a selection made in the filter pane.

Any suggestions? I really need some help with this.

Many thanks!!
