Clearing Selections

When i clear "Current Selections" in my Application when i am in one sheet, focus goes to the first sheet in the App.  Why does focus change and not stay in the current sheet?

Regards.

Re: Clearing Selections

So when you clear all selections, you clear the _View field?  Then all your sheet show field conditions are false.  QV does not allow having every sheet hidden -- it has to show something -- so it shows the first sheet

Where are you clearing? Can you explain how you are clear?

Re: Clearing Selections

I clear it through the 'Selections" "Clear" in the main menu of QlikView.  However when i clear through the "Current Selections" box focus remains on that sheet

Thanks, yes i have.  Please see my response to Anil above.

Re: Clearing Selections

That means, Ctrl + Shift + D . So, I am not facing any issue while doing same as you. Will you show in 2 images one is normal and 1 more is from clear option.

Re: Clearing Selections

With  Ctrl + Shift + D, the application focusses on the first sheet in the app which is:

However if i click in the current selections box 'rectangular icon' highlighted in yellow to clear the selections, which is:

The application remains in the current sheet which is:

Re: Clearing Selections

Interesting. Do you have any triggers in the document?  Settings, Document Properties, Triggers.

Any show condition in the sheet you are clearing from?

Also, click the dropdown arrow on the Clear button. Is "Reset Clear State" available? If so select it.

Re: Clearing Selections

Thanks Rob, I don't have any Document Event Triggers.  I selected the "Reset Clear State" and there is no change to the behavior of the application.

Re: Clearing Selections

Yes Rob, i have conditional shows on each sheet as the example below shows:

=if(GetFieldSelections(_View) = 'Competitive Analytics', True(), False())

The (_View) Multi box acts as "Menu" where the user selects the sheet to show.  i have used this to replace the tab rows and create more space on each each, see below:
