Image as a representation of dimension in a chart

Dear All,

Is this possible to use an image as a representation of dimension in a chart?

For example, I want to create a line chart showing sale of sweets in time. There are 2 categories of sweets: chocolate and cakes, so there are 2 lines on chart - one represents chocolate and the other one cakes. (example attached)

Instead of words "Cakes" and "Chocolate" I want to see some pictures with cakes and chocolate in the legend.

Does anybody know if it is possible in QlikView?

I would be grateful for your help..

Regards,

Bartłomiej

As per my Knowledge You connot have image as a dimension. One work around would be loading the table using bundle info load and using the field in expression with info().

try with the attached document

You can add the dimension images as below

Let you have a dimension Product Type. Now load a budle images in the script and map it with different Product Type.

Now use the Product Type as dimension and at dimension+ symbol  you can call the budle values as bachground. It may work.
