Re: Always one Value Selected

Hi Gaurav,

The Checkbox won't highlight the value in the ListBox, whether its a Windows checkbox or LED checkbox.

The highlighted value will only be shown in QlikView Classic format. Its all QV properties. Do you have any other issues which we are assuming wrong? Refer the images below:

Thanks for the help Mohanty.

Gaurav, for me, the post by Mohanty has solved the problem. Follow these steps

Please select a value in the list box (in the report) and check the properties of the list box, you will see the "Always One Selected" checkbox enabled.
