Additional Filters option in "Example files"

Hi All,

I am looking to replicate the Additional Filters feature in the example folder provided with a Qlikview download. How to I re create this?

When I click "Additional Filters" in 1) the Filters selections screen, seen in 2), appears ontop.

I like this feature and I dont know how to produce this and so any help would be great.

Re: Additional Filters option in "Example files"

For Creating Additional Filters you need to use Actions. Take one button and one variable like vVar = 0, on click on the button change the variable value like = if( vVar =0,1,0).

Now go the filters properties  and select conditional show option and write vVar = 1.

Now when you click on button then filters will display else hide.

If you want to include checkboxes in your list box then follow this:

Find example in attachment.

Thanks,

Jai

This can be done using layout conditions using variables.

Very simple using Action and layout condition

Do I need to activate variables? As when I copied the button across and the text object nothing happens.

I have also put vVar=1 in the layout section of the Text Object.
