QlikView Extension - Better Current Selections Box (Hiding/Translating Fields)
Better Current Selections Box is an advanced selection box for QlikView with the ability to hide and translate fields and to select different icons.
Purpose and Description
- Did you ever want to translate fields in the Current SelectionBox in QlikView?
- Did you ever want to hide fields beyond those with the prefix defined in SET HidePrefix = '%'; in your Current SelectionBox?
- Did you ever want to display different icons than the out of the box icons?
You have probably realized that these requirements are not that easy to meet. So enough reasons for creating this solution.
