I need some help with a business requirement of creating a bread Crumbs type of navigation structure. So basically what I want is something like below:
QlikView Mait tab>Chart 2 on Main Tab> Chart 3 on Tab2> Main tab Chart 1>....and so on.
This navigation list should be clickable so that one can follow the mouse clicks he.she did back and forth. Please notice that this functionality is not the same as Back and Forward buttons in QlikView because what all these buttons do is clear the selections one by one, but they do not move you to different tabs to take you back the path you took to arrive at the current QlikView tab from other tabs and chart objects. I hope I am clear in my requirement, but please let me know if you need more information.
The above navigation path needs to be Clikable so that one can jump across few tabs back in the navigation just by clicking the respective section on the Bread crumb above.
You can directly navigate to another chart by clicking on one. However, you can smartly align buttons at the bottom of the chart. Use the Activate Sheet triggers on these buttons (check for Trigger under Action tab) and specify the sheet you want to activate appropriately.
Alternatively, you can use variables and set them at button click to navigate to a different tab point to a particular chart.
!I attached the shell of a template I sometimes use. It has the start of breadcrumb navigation, but can be built out if needed using GetActiveSheetID the logic in kjh hjjh's text box.
See the load script for details. Name your tabs (sheets) in the load script. Then, change the Sheet ID to the same name. Navigation is done. You'll see the breadcrumb start. Place your GetActiveSheetID logic there and that should do it.
