Block Charts: Show Value from Expression?

Hi, we're trying to achieve the following in QlikView 11 with a block chart:

  1. Size is determined by first expression - works
  2. Background color shading is determined using "Background Color" sub expression of first expression - works
  3. Value shown in boxes is determined using "Show Value" sub expression of first expression - doesn't work

1 and 2 are easy but we are having problems with 3 - enabling "Show Numbers with Labels" always uses the value of the first expression, and ignores the "Show Value" sub-expression. Which is odd because we are successfully using other sub-expressions like "Background Color".

How can we set a custom value in the brackets displayed inside the block chart?

Edit: Never mind, it was embarrassingly simple once I looked in the right place...

(Presentation tab). Using QV 11.20 SR4 btw.

--------------------------------

Ping... any luck solving this?

I am facing the same challenge.

Hi,

Unfortunately show value is only possible for bar, line and combo charts. Not for Block Charts.

Thanks

Go to the presentation tab and ticket 'Show Numbers with Labels'
