Emulating dynamic labels in Qlik Sense

Currently, in Qlik Sense data columns labels are just static strings that do not evaluate variables and macro expressions. For me, that is one of the most nagging limitations in Qlik Sense.

I've made an extension named Dynamator, that adds such functionality to Qlik Sense (albeit with some serious limitations too).

As usual, the extension itself and sample application that demonstrates its usage are available for download

Dmitry is right. The project is currently only at github, not on the branch.

Hi Dmitry.

Sorry to disappoint you, but we do not actually use that extension in any real project. I've made this extension and written this post while exploring possible solutions. So sorry, I cannot predict how that may break on the different sheets of same applications.

I was not actually satisfied with that solution, as I stated in "caveats" section. Actually, that was a real bummer for me.

Incidentally, just several weeks after that QlikTech issued Sense 2.2 with new Visualization API, that looks promising for just that sort of operations.
