Independent List Box

Is it possible to make a List Box independent of the selection made in another List Box?

4 Replies


     If you using Qlikview -11, you can set alternate state for that particular list box. So its become independence..

Hope it helps

Aren't alternate states only available for charts?

I need each List box to still effect certain data in charts (which I can control with set anaylsis) but I dont want the list boxes to effect eachother.

Alternate States affect all objects, even entire sheets.  You can have some list boxes that affect some charts and others which are tied to other charts.

Another way of having completely independent list boxes is to have data in 'Data Islands'.  I've uploaded a demonstration of how that can work here:


Hope this is useful to you.
