Resize Current Selection Box smaller, without horizontal scroll bar

The Current Selection Box must be resized to save some space.

Error 2.jpg

However, the horizontal bar gets in. Where can I change this horizontal bar so that either it appears smaller point, or does not appear.

Error 3.jpg

I would appreciate for your feedback on how to.

Hi,

Go to the right most end,

A plus + mouse point will appear.

Drag that to left.

Hi,

You can make it 'thinner' by right clicking, selecting properties, going to the layout tab and reducing the 'scrollbar width' option.

If you make a selection, on the far right of that selection around the edge of your box it should offer you a different cursor (the black column resizing cursor) - rather than just resize the box, first resize the "selection" column or the "field" column, and then you should be able to reduce the box size without encountering the horizontal scrollbar.

Alternatively, if you want to reduce the size dramatically, consider using a different object to show the current selections. A good example is this document by stevedark: http://community.qlik.com/docs/DOC-4290

Thank you for fast response. I attempted, but there seems certain minimum width, and cannot drag to the left.

Thank you for feedback. It is interesting to use of text box with:

='  Current Selections: ' &

     if(vShowCS = 1, '  Click Here To Hide',

     if(isnull(GetCurrentSelections()), 'Nothing selected',

     GetCurrentSelections(' | ', ': ', ',')))

However, it lacks ability to remove the selection. But I will add it as an indicator on the top of the screen,

It's quite intriguing. Another developer has her standard selection box like this. I imported her box to my doc, and it is still fine without horizontal bar.

If you follow what the document suggests, when a user then clicks on the "selections bar" it will show the full selections box and allow you to make/remove selections. If you need the user to be able to remove from the box as is then yes, unfortunately it won't offer that functionality.

You are right. I had to slide upper-right corner. Thank you for your feedback.
