Action on Textbox

Hi,

I just want to ask. I have this Textbox with name "Admin" I want to add an action that when I clicked the "Admin" Text, I can filter a certain field. Do you know how I can do that? I've checked  "Select Field" and "Toggle Select" action but I doesn't work. I hope you can help me out here.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Action on Textbox

Yes you can put ACTIONS on Text Box.

In the label ACTIONS, select the actions required.

If you need more help, upload a little example file

Re: Action on Textbox

That is my question....

How can I put action to filter a certain field...

For example:

If I click the "Admin" text, it will filter out all admin on Field Status.

Hi Kevin,

are you looking to select 'Admin' in your 'Status' field. If so, add a 'Select in Field' action to your text object. Set the field to 'Status' (no quotes!), and Search String to 'Admin' (again, no quotes!).

If you are looking to exclude 'Admin', set your search string to '(* ^ Admin)' (without quotes)

Thanks Marcus!

Yes, it works on the field but it doesn't reflect on my other graphs...

What I want was also to filter out other graphs using the action coming from the TextBox.

Like I said, when I clicked on "Admin" the field status will be admin and also other graphs that uses status fields.

Thanks!

Re: Action on Textbox

Ok, this is indicative of an issue with your expressions, or perhaps your data model.

Do the expressions in your charts have any set analysis relating to the Status field?

Is the table containing the Status field linked to the tables that are being used to derive your charts?

If you can, I'd suggest uploading a copy of your .qvw
