It's known that Qlik Sense doesn´t allow us to create a dynamic label for dimensions or metrics in objects.
But during my daily development, I found an unexpected behavior building an expression with dollar expansion like this
I was building a pivot table and instead of copy and paste the above expression inside the expression box, I paste it in the label box by accident.
To my surprise, it showed the result of the expression, not the text of the expression.
After some testing, I found this behavior only works with labels of measures in the pivot table object. Just that place.
The expression inside $() also works even if you pivot the measure to rows.
Tested with QS version 2 and version 3.
Perhaps our friends from Qlik, Josh Good and Michael Tarallo mto can explain if we can make use of this hidden feature as a workaround for a dynamic label use case or it can stop working in a future release.
