Trigger in QlikView

Hello All,

I want to achieve few things using triggers. I have a field called Product Name and I want to set a trigger which will take me to an other sheet/tab(which is active) based on my select from Product Name field.

I have 5 tab as Dashboard, Customer, Details, Order and data. If I select anything from Product Name field then it should  take me to Details tab.

Also, give me few more examples of Trigger function in QlikView under Document Security.

you can achive this with a trigger on field level.

Go to Document Properties (CRTL + ALT + D)

Then go to Sheet Triggers and select your field <Product Name>

Add a trigger on selection -> Layout -> Activate Sheet -> Enter your sheet Name Details

Thats it. For more information look into Reference Manual.

But the best way to learn about trigger is playing with them. Just try them out.
