Re: label problem in expression

The drill down issue I think your post describes very well.

The new functionality for single dimensions in 3.2 looks like this.

Create a dimension and give it a name

The name is now used in the selections bar

For drill down the expression will be shown

But I just realized that there is a workaround for now.

If you add the expression you use in the drill down as a separate library item then we will find that in the list and use that label

Re: label problem in expression

Hi Beck,

If you use Qlik Sense 3.2 and if you add the expression as a dimension in the library then the name of the library item will be shown instead of the expression.

Re: label problem in expression

Oh sorry, You are referring to current selections.

Beck, we should follow some work around like showing current selections in text box (with customized expression.)

I think we cant label the fields being shown in current selections.

Re: label problem in expression

Hi Beck,

True, that is something that won't work for you right now as drill downs don't have individual names per level.

Re: label problem in expression

Unfortunately, we wan't change the labels in the current selection bars of Qlik Sense.

It will always show the expression if your dimension is calculated.

The only way show the label is to calculate your dimension in the script and then use it
