How to display bookmark name

Hi,

users create their own bookmarks in qlikview document on access point. They would like to see in the document the name of the last bookmark applied.

Can someone help me to do this ?

Thanks in advance

Re: How to display bookmark name

I dont think that is possible. For pre-configured bookmarks, I have in the past used an island table containing a field with bookmark names, and each bookmark included a selection from that field, which could then be displayed in a text box and in the current selections. But this solution is not so useful for user bookmarks.

No. They want to see in a text object the name of the bookmark.

They only way I can think of is having a button to apply the bookmark and a 2nd action to change a variable to the bookmark name. But this is manual process, you need to maintain the bookmarks id and names yourself

Re: How to display bookmark name

This has not real value as after applying a bookmark a user can still make additional selections so displaying the bookmark name might be misleading. What matters is the field selections

Yes, it's what I think. I'll say that to my users

Thanks for your help.
