Is it possible to create a custom field/dimension in a mashup?

Hi everyone,

I was wondering if it is possible to create a custom field (or dimension) via JS in a mashup.

Something similar to app.variable.create() maybe.

The contents of this dimension would be provided via an array or JSON.

Glad for any Ideas on this topic. Ideas on how to use other Qlik objects (like lists for example) as dimension would also help.

Thanks,

Marco

Re: Is it possible to create a custom field/dimension in a mashup?

Hello Marco,

you could try to build an INLINE LOAD Statement using you array/JSON data, append it to the load script of the application and reload.

Maybe also take a look into the ValueList function.

Hope it helps,

Mathias
