Selecting fields

When I select a field, QlikView forces the selection to be the first visible item in the list. How do I stop it from doing that?

Hi,

maybe you are looking for the "Preserve Scroll Position" option?

Hi,

In the List box properties, Goto Sort Tab, there will be a option called State, uncheck that option. this will solve the issue.

Nope. I've already done that to stop it from un-ordering the list. The list remains in the original order, but it moves the selected item to be the first one visible in the list. I want it to stop doing that.

Can you share a sample that depicts the problem,? coz what Krishnapriya suggested it should work.

Given the following load (as an example):

DataSample:
LOAD * INLINE [NumericValue
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
8
9
10
11
12
13
14
15
16
17
18
19
20]
;

0) Create a Select Field object

1) Open the object's properties

2) On the Sort tab, and uncheck the State option

3) Check the Expression option, and specify the following : Minstring({1}NumericValue)

4) Click OK

5) Make the select field list short enough to only show 7 or 8 items.

6) Click the last visible item.

The list remains in the correct sorted order, but the list changes to show the selected item at the top of the list.

How do I make it NOT do that?

When you make the list short, scroll bar will be activated and when you click on number 7 or 8 the scroll bar moves and shows the selected value. That is expected, what is that you are trying to achieve here, i mean what is your actual requirement?

Oops completely forgot about that, thanks Marco for that. I believe that is what he wants. Sorry John, please ignore my earlier reply.
