Controlling a slider through play button

Hi All

I want to use a functionality in qlikview which is when we should have a 'Play' button in our application and when we click on that button the slider should start sliding on the specified dimension in the slider and the data on the graphs should move accordingly. Is it possible to do, if yes then how?

Please find attached an image for the reference.

Use the "Animated dimension" feature.

In your chart, go to "Dimensions" tab, add the "Time" dimension, promote it to the top, press "Animate" button and configure the animation.

Hey Lucian, Thanks for the reply.

Could you please post an application reflecting this implementation?

The Animate dimension option only works in the IE Plugin though.

If you need a solution for the ajax client Stefan Walther has created a very nice animated scatter plot as an extension.

You can locate it and all of the supporting documentation at

Hi, in your chart, under dimension tab. at the bottom click on Animate button ansd check animate first dimension and click ok. This will help you to slide using play button. Regards, siva

Most likely you are running an older version of IE, such as IE6 to 8, or you have QV11 SR1 installed.

I tried to open it through Google chrome also but is still not working on the browser side.
