what I believe he is saying is theat he has created an NPrinting tab within his application but hides it to the user. On that NPrinting tab, he has the same objects but is using the default state of the objects instead of alternate state
he is doing this just so the nprinting report somehwat duplicates alternate state for the report
It is a workaround, as you ahve said since NPrinting does not support the feature - I did not see enough detail in the response to know exactly what he is doing
The concept of building a seperate, hidden nprinting tab to have objects in a different representation for reports only is not uncommon
to be honest, I have never seen this before, and I cannot find the option within my version of NPrinting, which is 16.1.0.
The way I have built the invisible NPrinting sheet is directly within the Qlikview application - I would create a new sheet, place the objects I want just for the nprinting report, build my nprinting report and connect to the objects on the nprinting tab. Once I have tested, I then go back to the QlikView application and set a condition on the sheet that will never be met to keep it invisable to the users
Thanks very much Adam for the information. I do the same for hiding the tab at application level. But what Gary has mentioned, it does not work with regards to Alternate state alternative or I might be doing some thing wrong. However, thanks very much for this will keep you posted if any queries.
