2 different hideprefix

Hi
Is it possible to use 2 different hideprefix?
like this:
set hideprefix = '$';
set hideprefix = '%';
If I use this, only the last will be applied.

Re: 2 different hideprefix

with the second statement you overwrite the previous one. could you use HideSuffix instead?

You may use an additional HideSuffix

Re: 2 different hideprefix

HIDEPREFIX is a variable. The very last assignment will prevail.

Re: 2 different hideprefix

Actually what we want to do is to hide a field in all our dashboard.

But some of these dashboards already use hideprefix or suffix.

We could use the same prefix for that field but the impact would be large. We use this field to chain and we use it in 80% of our expressions.

Re: 2 different hideprefix

Maybe using the HideSuffix for the document chaining will do the trick? Or do you have any dashboards where you already used the HideSuffix?
