Set HidePrefix in QSense?

Hi

I do a binary load of a QlikView QVW file to create a QSense App. The QVW File contains Statement

Set HidePrefix='%';

to hide all %-Keys to the EndUser.

However, in QSense the %-Fields are still visible....

What to do?

Thank you - Marcel

Re: Set HidePrefix in QSense?

well

I see that HidePrefix hides fields from being shown in the selection state box. However, fields are still visible for creation of new listboxes, tabular diagrams etc. So this seems to be the same and normal behaviour in QView as in QSense.

They key bit is bold and underlined

HidePrefix

All field names beginning with this text string will be hidden in the same manner as the system fields. A user-defined variable.
  Example:
  set HidePrefix='_' ;
 
If this statement is used, the field names beginning with an underscore will not be shown in the field name lists when the system fields are hidden.

Re: Set HidePrefix in QSense?

Hi Andy

thank you for this clarification.

I found that when I do a binary load of a QVW file into QSense in script, I have to add the Set HidePrefix command after the binary command. This solves my Problem.
