          Maybe the advice I gave in this recent post may help. http://community.qlik.com/message/296692#296692

              Thanks For You Reply Mr. Jon. But My Requirement Is Without Button I need To Activate The Sheet Object.

                  You can test whether a chart is active by using the macro code SheetObject.IsActive. This could then be used to set a variable to be using in a conditional show on the layout tab for the other charts.

                  I am not sure however how you can trigger such a macro code as Chart objects don't have Actions properties and the available sheet objects are not included as Triggers under the Document settings.

                  You could set a thread that leeps for a second efore testing this, but I suspect the performance impact, and potential for the thread to be interupted, would not be justified.

                      Can You Please Send me That Macro.....

                        • Re: Select Chart In Container Issue

                          If you go to the API Guide qvw file's 'Automation examples' sheet and select Member 'IsActive' and Class 'SheetObject' you get the following example that tests for what object is active and then minimizes it:


                          rem ** minimize all active sheet objects on active sheet **

                          set s=ActiveDocument.ActiveSheet


                          for i=lbound(objs) to ubound(objs)

                              if objs(i).IsActive then objs(i).Minimize



                          If you then choose Member 'Activate' you will see another example on how to activate sheet objects (all the objects on a sheet though):


                          rem ** activate all sheet objects on sheet Main one by one **

                          set s=ActiveDocument.Sheets("Main")

                          for i=0 to s.NoOfSheetObjects-1




                          Between these two bits of code you should be able to get something that tests which of one chart is active and activates another chart accordingly. As I said before however, I am not sure how you would trigger this as Chart SheetObjects don't have triggers or Actions properties.
