How to trigger a selection ?


I have a situation like this.

We have in dashboard, a dropdown called 'Range'. This will have values from 0-10

Internally to qlikview, the table which holds 'Range' field has another column 'StartDate'. That is, each Range value will have a corresponding StartDate.

Another internal table in qlikview (not joined to the first table mentioned) has a date filed named 'DischargeDate'

Now my requirement is, when I select any value in Range (say 5, and say the corresponding StartDate for this is 1-Jun-2012 ), that selection should trigger another selection that would be "DischargeDate greater than or equal to the selected StartDate"

I could implement the requirement, but it takes an extra step now. With my current logic, when Range is selected, I am storing the corresponding StartDate in a variable (vRangeStart). Another button is provided 'Show Data' with action as Select in Field where DischargeDate >=vRangeStart . This works, but as I said, with an extra button click. I want the same selection to be happened along with the selection of Range value.

Can anyone help me to give the same result, avoiding the button click.

You may try to add a trigger for OnChange event of your variable vRangeStart.

Pls. see Variable Event Trigger in Settings-->Document Properties-->Triggers.
