Qlikview Extension - SelectTextsInColumn

Hi folk,

I am encountering a problem when I try to select multiple values in multiple fields via extension.

The problem is that for the first 2 fields it is working fine, but when it comes to the 3thd field i get an updating message error from qlikview:

UDATING TRY AGAIN message....Is it going to fast? How I can avoid such behaviour?

Is there a limitation when I try to select multiple fields value from an extension, where multiple means >2 fields.

Thanks for your help!

This is the snippet .js code which I use for that purpose:

//PAM: Parse QvKey, and set Selection based on the Dimension behind the extension

            for(var i=0; i< splitted.length-1; i++){


                //PAM: Split Key and Values

                keyEntry =splitted;  

                pos = splitted.indexOf(':');

                selectedValues = keyEntry.substring(pos+1);

                selectedField =  keyEntry.substring(0, pos);          


                //PAM: Loop the dimensions setting in the extension              

                for(var j=0; j< _this.Data.HeaderRows[0].length-1; j++)


                    //PAM: Check if the KeyField is equal to the dimension field


                        //PAM: Apply selection, whereby the Values have to be converted into an array for multiple values selection

                         _this.Data.SelectTextsInColumn(j, true,valuesToArray(selectedValues));

                         //HERE I APPLY THE SELECTION IN QLIK!
