"Color by measure" number formatting

Is there a way to change the number formatting in the example below (map colored by a measure)?

Not only is the measure shown twice, but the second appearance displays way too many decimal places.

Re: "Color by measure" number formatting

It seems with the default map , there isn't but this will change with our new mapping capability being added to Qlik Sense.I attempted to us num(Sum(Sales),'$#,##0') as an expression in color by - but it did not do anything for the pop up.

I will check one last time with a product manager - but at this time I don't think it is possible with the default map.

Hi Stefano - thanks for following up - I added patricn‌ on this as well as our new native map capabilities have been added - however I do not see an option to format the numbers:

Re: "Color by measure" number formatting

Hi,

Yes, formatting is limited so far, I hope to be able to custom tooltips in a not too distant future for all charts.

Some customization will be possible as of Sept 2018 when the native map chart will use the custom numerical abbreviations if they are defined:

Re: "Color by measure" number formatting

Hi Patric,

  I'm using Sept 2018 and still found an issue with the color by measure formatting. Look at the bar chart bellow.

The bar chart at left uses single color so number shown in the tool tip have the correct formatting.

The bar chart at right uses color by measure and number have no formatting.

I'm referencing Measure 1 from the object that is already formatted.

There is a workaround to overcome this issue ?

Hi Pablo, yes that is a limitation that master item measures don't have formatting. The workaround is to do the formatting in the master item expression. Like this: num(avg(Col2),'0,00%')

Thanks,

Patric
