Set analysis in AAI formulas

Hi community,

as my first post ever on the Qlik Community, I was wondering whether and how set modifiers (as well as the "total" qualifier) can be used in conjunction with the AAI formulas (e.g. R.ScriptAggr).

Image, for instance, a barchart using [Field 1] as a dimension and a measure where this dimension needs to be ignored - e.g. to display a % of total:

sum([Field X]) / sum([Field X] total <[Field 1]>)

The numerator and denominator are hence essentially the same, only that the latter ignores the barchart's dimension. The equivalent of the numerator, using AAI, would be something like:

R.ScriptAggrEx( 'N',

'sum(q$FieldX, na.rm = TRUE);'

    ,num("Field X") as FieldX

)


However, how could one specify the 'total' in the R.Scriptxxx formulas? Or is it simply not possible (yet), and if so, can we expect such feature in the future?
