    How to load dimension names into settings dropdown

      Hello I am new to qliksense and attempting to write an extension for version 1.0 (so this could be a silly question).

       

      I would like the user to select from a list of dimension names in the visualization settings panel to the right, without having to retrieve any data or be forced to add a dimension to the visualisation before loading it. I'd like the dimension names to be those that were originally defined in the sheet's data.

       

      definition : {

           type : "items",

           component : "accordion",

           items : {

                dimension : {

                     type : "items",

                     label : "Select Fields",

                     min : 1,

                     max : 1,

                     items : {

                          field1 : {

                               type : "string",

                               component : "dropdown",

                               label : "Select field 1",

                               options : //TODO: how do I get all the possible field names defined in the data sheet here?

                          },

                          field2 : {

                               type : "string",

                               component : "Select field 2",

                               label : "Select a dimension",

                               options : //TODO: how do I get all the possible field names defined in the data sheet here?

                          }

                     }

                }

           }

      }

       

      Hope this makes sense
