QlikView doesn't have the setting to make dimension values to show as wrapped text. I wonder if this is possible using Extension?
Can someone point me to where I can start learning Extensions?
You would need to set the "Wrap Cell Text" and set number of lines you would like, under Presentation tab in Properties of the chart.
Is this what you are looking for?
Ah! No, I am afraid that's not possible. Now, if somehow you can insert a chr(13) in the text, it may break into 2 lines, but not going to be a good solution.
Thanks Rakesh.However your solution won't work if the Primary Dimension Labels under Dimension Axis is set to horizontal.
Is it not possible even with extensions? QlikView can do all the fanciful people chart, google map chart but there's no way to get label to be wrapped text? =(
1. Learn about extensions
2. Decide about which charting components provide you with the desired options
3. Write an extension (Or use if there is an existing one) to get the data and to drive your chart
4. Use your components attribute to format the chart the way you want.
Sure, it won't work - I just gave you most possible solution out of the box.
I think your question is very reasonable and it should be place to QlikView Ideas for next versions. Please go ahead and make a post in QlikView Ideas section here: http://community.qlik.com/ideas
For now, creating your own extension and applying it to your application seems to be the only solution, as suggested by Vidyut.
Thanks Vidyut and Rakesh for your input. I was reading here and google-ing and wasn't sure if the dimension/expression property is restricted by qvpp properties.
