Hide expression of measure

Hi,

I am looking to see if there is any way to hide an expression from showing in a hover over in QlkiSense. My expression is: sum({<MonthYr={">$(=Date(AddMonths(Date(MonthStart(Today()),'MMM-YYYY') , -12), 'MMM-YYYY'))<=$(=Date(MonthStart(Today()),'MMM-YYYY'))"}>}CareTime)/Count({<MonthYr={">$(=Date(AddMonths(Date(MonthStart(Today()),'MMM-YYYY') , -12), 'MMM-YYYY'))<=$(=Date(MonthStart(Today()),'MMM-YYYY'))"}>}Distinct InjurySK).  I am trying to figure out if it's possible to force it to show what the label is set as or hide the expression entirely.

Thanks,

Philip Radovich

Hi Philip, usually there is a text box to set the label of expression, wich is what user seens instead of the expresion. In wich object/charttype are you not allowed to set the label?

Re: Hide expression of measure

Where does it show the expression when hovering over it?

In a table, graph,... or somewhere else?

Line chart has a text box to set the label, expanding the expression you should see the text box, the chart will show that text:

Where you entered the expression, there should be a textbox under as "Label"

If you give the expression a name there, it shouldn't put the whole measure in the pop-up anymore.

Re: Hide expression of measure

Hi Philip,

try to use label for expression, as others mentioned.

You can master item as well, so you can use this expression as a field. It is very handy when the expression is used by multiple object.

+1 for master items: You can do that with dimensions as well.

Example:

=if(date>'2018-01-01',date,null())

If you use this in a table and filter on it, in the filter ribbon you see the expression instead of label.

If we make a master item based on the expression, the label will appear in the filter ribbon.
