Open QlikView documents based on listbox selected value

Hi All,

I have a requirement, in which I got stucked to get the solution. Could someone help me on this?

I have a three QlikView files

1. Main.qvw

2. Current.qvw

3. Prior.qvw

Main.qvw has a filter Year with values 2011, 2012, 2013, 2014 and it is always one selected value list box.

If I select 2014, then it should open Current.qvw, for other values(2011-2013) it should open Prior.qvw.

I tried with document event trigger with action Open QlikView document, but it is not working.

Thanks in advance.

Regards,

Celambarasan

Hi Celambarasan,

You can use Field Event Triggers instead of Document Event Triggers and achieve the same.

Say your field name is "Year" then you can add actions OnSelect and OnChange of "Year".

Hope this helps!

Ya I used the Field Event trigger only. Sorry for that confusion.

Hi,

Use Field Event Triggers, OnSelect and open the document.

Can you share a sample ?

Re: Open QlikView documents based on listbox selected value

That's fine Jagan. But in case User Experience its not that much good it seems.

Client is asking smoothy experience on switching the application. The same filter will appear in all the files, but user don't want to recognize switching the apps.

Hi,

Even Launch event is also not working, may be there is a restriction in Qlikview.

Did anyone find out if there was a bug/issue/restriction

did you have any response as to a restriction in QlikView that keeps the open document action from working from the field or variable triggers?
