I have successfully created a trigger in a macro...how do I modify for an alternate state.

Below works beautifully to create the field triggers I need in a macro. I did this due to Qlikview deleting the triggers I had created in their UI if the supporting data structure should change, if only temporarily. My next step is to create these triggers and only have them applicable to a specific Alternate State. Does anyone know what else I need to do

  set fld = ActiveDocument.Fields("GroupingLocationNN")

  fldProp = fld.GetProperties

  set fldActions=fldProp.OnChangeActionItems

  for i=fldActions.Count-1 to 0 step -1 

     if fldActions.Count > 0 then

        fldActions.RemoveAt i

     end if  

  next

  fldActions.Add

  fldActions.Item(0).Type = 32 'Field Select=32

  fldActions.Item(0).Parameters.Add

  fldActions.Item(0).Parameters.Item(0).v = "LocationNM"

  fldActions.Item(0).Parameters.Add

  fldActions.Item(0).Parameters.Item(1).v = "='(' & '""' & GetFieldSelections(GroupingLocationNN, '""|""')  & '""' &  ')'"

  

  fldActions.Add

  fldActions.Item(1).Type = 32 'Field Select=32

  fldActions.Item(1).Parameters.Add

  fldActions.Item(1).Parameters.Item(0).v = "iTooGroupingLocationNM"

  fldActions.Item(1).Parameters.Add

  fldActions.Item(1).Parameters.Item(1).v = "='(' & '""' & GetFieldSelections(GroupingLocationNN, '""|""')  & '""' &  ')'"

  fld.SetProperties fldProp

/* I need to modify this code so that it will also populate the Alternate State box with my alternate state, "PreviousYear" */

/* I tried this, but it still does not work... Note I am running the macro under my "PreviousYear" Alternate State */

set fld = ActiveDocument.Fields("GroupingLocationNN", "PreviousYear")

  fldProp = fld.GetProperties

  set fldActions=fldProp.OnChangeActionItems

for i=fldActions.Count-1 to 0 step -1 

    if fldActions.Count > 0 then

       fldActions.RemoveAt i

    end if  

next

  fldActions.Add

  fldActions.Item(2).Type = 32 'Set Value=31

' fldActions.Item(2).Action = "PreviousYear" 'Set Value=31

  fldActions.Item(2).Parameters.Add

  fldActions.Item(2).Parameters.Item(0).v = "{PreviousYear}LocationNM"

  fldActions.Item(2).Parameters.Add

  fldActions.Item(2).Parameters.Item(1).v = "='(' & '""' & GetFieldSelections(GroupingLocationNN, '""|""')  & '""' &  ')'"

  

  fldActions.Add

  fldActions.Item(3).Type = 32 'Set Value=31

  fldActions.Item(3).Parameters.Add

  fldActions.Item(3).Parameters.Item(0).v = "{PreviousYear}iTooGroupingLocationNM"

  fldActions.Item(3).Parameters.Add

  fldActions.Item(3).Parameters.Item(1).v = "='(' & '""' & GetFieldSelections(GroupingLocationNN, '""|""')  & '""' &  ')'"

  fld.SetProperties fldProp

Re: I have successfully created a trigger in a macro...how do I modify for an alternate state.

Looks like it can't be done in VBS: I've tried the script below to print all variable's action parameters -- there was nothing resembling the Alternate State set up.

sub PrintVariablesTriggers

  set variable = ActiveDocument.Variables("Variable1")

  set actions = variable.GetProperties.OnChangeActionItems

  set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

  outFile = "c:\out.txt"

  set objFile = objFSO.CreateTextFile(outFile,True)

  for i=0 to actions.Count-1

      objFile.Write "Action type: " & actions.item(i).Type & vbCrLf

      set parameters = actions.item(i).Parameters

      for j=0 to parameters.Count-1

          objFile.Write "-Parameter value: " & parameters.item(j).v & vbCrLf

      next

  next

  objFile.Close

end sub
