Custom Pop Up Labels On Line Chart Not Working

In the attached .qvw I built two identical charts off of a simple data set.  The only difference between the two charts is that one is a bar chart and one is a line chart.  In both charts I have two expressions.  The first expression takes an average of sales attainment.  The second expression is a string that should show up only in the pop-up labels.  In the bar chart, both expressions behave normally, with the second expression producing an extra string in the standard pop-up label.  But in the line chart, the string from the second expression does not show up in the pop-up labels.  I can't figure out why.  Any thoughts?

Change your Line Chart to a Combo Chart.

Re: Custom Pop Up Labels On Line Chart Not Working

When I change the Line Chart to a Combo Chart, I see that Qlikview has automatically checked the check box next to 'Line' under Display Options for Expression2 (='Hey').  This causes 'Hey' to appear in my legend.  When I uncheck the box next to 'Line' under Display Options for Expression2, I revert back to my original problem.  The text from Expression2 no longer appears in the pop-up labels.

On the Combo Chart untick Expression as Legend for your 'Hey' expression.

See attached.

Re: Re: Re: Custom Pop Up Labels On Line Chart Not Working

  1. Your suggestion worked on the small example from the .qvw I uploaded, but I ran into a problem when I created a more complex Combo Chart.  First I added another dimension to our little example and everything still worked fine, pop-up labels and all.  Then I tried going back to one dimension and enlarging the underlying data set (~200,000 rows).  Everything still worked fine, pop-up labels and all.  But when I tried using two dimensions AND enlarging the data set, it wouldn't even plot the data let alone show the pop-ups.  (Illustrated in the attachment) 
  2. I thought bar charts and line charts functioned in essentially the same way.  Do you know why the pop-up labels work differently for the two?  It would solve my problem if pop-ups for line charts worked the same way they do for bar charts.

Hi Mark,

Have you found a solution to the issue with custom pop-ups on multi-diminsional line charts? I'm experiencing exactly the same issue.

Thanks!

Found it!

Only works as a first expression as stated here: http://community.qlik.com/thread/116377

Re: Custom Pop Up Labels On Line Chart Not Working

I have a sample file of this, but have found an issue this AM, when asked similar question by a client.

My sample works in QV 11.2 SP6 but not at all in SP7.
