Container and Cycle Selection

I have a container with two charts: Level A and Level B.

I have an additional chart under the container with a button to Cycle between Level A view and Level B. My customer is asking if it is possible that when you select the Chart within the Container for Level A that the lower level filter shows Level A and if you select the Chart within the Container for Level B that the lower level filter shows Level B?

Thanks

Re: Container and Cycle Selection

Access to container-properties are only per macros possible therefore is the easiest way not to use container for such things else buttons which switch per variable the visibilty from these objects and variable could also be used for defining this label.

Re: Container and Cycle Selection

What about using alternate states - each container would be a different state and you can hve filter options associated with each state.  This will allow only the specified chart to update based on selection criteria

Alternate states is not an option for this because there are list boxes than need to apply to both.

Re: Container and Cycle Selection

I have a button right now but the customer wants to switch the values without having to click a button.

Re: Container and Cycle Selection

sorry - did not understand that part

what about set analysis based on the value(s) selected?

Re: Container and Cycle Selection

The buttons (and maybe other objects like a textbox as frame within background) could be (relative easily) styled like a container so the user won't notice any difference.

Re: Container and Cycle Selection

Can you do set analysis for which chart is selected to trigger which Cycle view another chart shows?

Re: Container and Cycle Selection

The charts within the container are pretty complex straight tables with a lot of values so I don't think the text box option would work. Also, we don't want buttons. If a user selects Level A chart in the container, the lower graph would show the Cycle for Level A.

any chance of getting the app with scrambled data or a smaller version of the app with test data - having a difficult time vizualizing and understanding
