Dimension label on chart using dimension cycle group


Hi to all,

I'm working on a dashboard currently which has uses a dimension cycle group on several of the charts.  I would like to be able to display the Y axis label on the chart so that this reflects the dimension that has been selected.  I realise that there is no automated way of displaying Y axis labels apart from to use the 'text in chart' function.  What I need to be able to do is get the text in chart function to display the name of the dimension that is selected.

Does anyone know of a way to do this?

Many thanks

Tim

Re: Dimension label on chart using dimension cycle group

Hi,

     The only way I use is use the property "Show Title in Chart" available on the General Tab of chart properties.

     After enabling the property, do not enter anything let it display as '<Use First Expression Label>'.

     Kindly explain with some sample qvw file or example.

The GetCurrentField() function returns the name of the field currently selected in your cycle group.

Hi Thanks for the replies so far.

I should have been more clear in the first place I think.

The dimensions are actually not in a defined group and are also not acually dimensions.  As you can see from the attached word document, they are calculated expressions which can be cycled through.  I would like to be able to display the name or label of the expression on the chart so it's clear to the user what they are looking at.

This is a dashboard created by someone else that I am just adjusting slightly in line with user requests.

Msany thanks

Ok, so you are talking of cyclic expressions, not cyclic dimensions. I do not know of any way of getting the current selection of an expression cyclic. Maybe someone can offer an idea?

Of course! Thank you Kaushik.  I have no idea why I didn't think of that before.
