You might be able to use the below, it was a alternative way of creating a cyclic group.
Create an inline table in the script
Load * inline
This will create two new fields 'Selector' and 'Name'
Create a master item dimension with the fields being the dimension you want the user to be able to select
Use that master item dimension as a dimension in your chart and create a filter pane with the field 'Name' from the inline table.
Selecting a name in the filter pane will make the chart change, as there is no way to limit the selection to just one it is also wise to add a calculation condition on the chart.Calulation condition can be found under Add-ons > Data handling, I use getselectedcount(Name)=1
Thanks for your reply. I don't think you understood my question correctly.
I specifically do not want to use a filter. I have a column in my dataset that I would like to filter on. So I could use a filter but instead I want to use a button. There are plenty of extensions for buttons available on Qlik Branch, and they all operate based on variable values.
So my question is how can I emulate filter with buttons through variable values. If variableA = 1, apply a certain filter. How can I do this in Qlik?
