is there a way to refer to a measure in an expression by using it's label, etc? i.e. the two measures have labels "Major count" and "Minor count". wondering if there's a function that allows something along the lines of if(MeasureLabel = "Major count",red,if(MeasureLabel = "Minor count",orange))
What you're suggesting works great for line chart, but unfortunately unless my understanding is incorrect, it does not work for combo charts. combo charts do not allow multiple dimensions. i need combo charts to display the data vs two different y-axis. any idea how to implement a color measure by expression function for combo charts?
Its not possible to colour code a combo chart, the way its done in a line chart or a bar chart because of the dimension limit. As you cannot achieve this with a combo chart, I would prefer going for an extension or build one for your business requirement.
thank you for the reply, but i would prefer the functionality is added to qlik sense. seems like something that would be useful across the board. should be as simple as measure a = color x, measure b = color y, etc.
Hi Jonathan, and soon is really when ? Next release ? I know , it's commercial confidential, but as we use QlikSense more and more especially on the Enterprise side, there are so many features (us QlikView dev types) are used to that we are being asked to reproduce in QlikSense only to see disappointment in the requester's demeanor when they are told pretty much that it's not available in QS or an extension.
A tad embarrassing when a power user says "Look I can do this easily in Excel (brr shiver) or Tableau etc" how does one reply besides the standard "Oh hopefully the next version will solve it"
Yes QS has a little way to go as far as competitive maturity is concerned, but users/developers want it sooner than later
