    Does bookmarking save the input box or slider's value ?

      I have an application that has both an input box and a slider and would like to save the changes made as a bookmark.

      I created a bookmark to save these selections. However, when I displayed my bookmark, the changes made in the input box/slider didn't show up.

      Does QlikView bookmark allow saving updates made in an input box/slider objects ?

      If not, is there an option for the bookmark to save them, ie. macros. etc ?

          Hi Anthony,

          You need to ensure that the variables that are being set in the Input Box and the Slider are set to be included in bookmarks.

          To do this:

          Select 'Settings' and 'Document Properties'
          Select the 'Variables' tab
          Click each variable you want to include in bookmarks and ensure 'Include in Bookmarks' is selected

          You will need to recapture your bookmarks and this time the variables should be included.

          Regards,

              Hi Steve,

              Thank you for your response.

              I selected the variables I needed and selected the option 'Include in Bookmarks' and re-created the bookmark.

              When I go to the re-saved bookmark, the input box's value didn't changed to the saved value. It only changed value when I try editing the value. Is this how it is supposed to work ? I was thinking that when I select the bookmark, the input box's value would instantly change.

              I am enclosing a sample app for reference.

                  Hi Anthony,

                  Thanks for posting up the application. I can see the behaviour you describe. I added another bookmark and this worked fine. I then added another that behaves the same as your bookmark. The difference between the two bookmarks being the one that works does not include Layout State and Scroll Positions where the one that fails does.

                  Do you need layout state and scroll positions included in your bookmarks?

                  I can not see any reason why QlikView should behave in this way - what service release of QlikView are you running? I have yet to install SR5 on the machine I tried this on.

                  Regards,
                  Steve
