Here is a app that shows brushing that can be done with alternate states http://community.qlik.com/qlikviews/1194
Also on demo.qlik.com you will find "What's new in QlikView 11", you can download that one and have a look at the product examples that relies heavily on alternate states.
You will need QV11 for both examples.
I have just come across this old post, but the link no longer works.
Could you please provide the new location for that app?
I would also like to understand how the app showed here
works behind the scene.
I have done something similar based on a webinar I followed a few months ago: "Putting theory into practice".
In the webinar, they use set analysis and not alternate states. It also seems I cannot "push" the selected items at the bottom of the bar chart (like in the picture below).
Could you please help?
