StateName - chart function

This chart function returns the state name of the object in which it is used. The QlikView developer can use this function to have dynamic text and colors when an object’s state is changed. It is important to note that this function works on objects only. It cannot be used in a chart expression to determine the state that the expression refers to.


StateName ()

Note: Alternate states can be defined under Settings > Document Properties > General > Alternate States.

Example 1:  

Dynamic Text

='Region - ' & if(StateName() = '$', 'Default', StateName())

Example 2:  

Dynamic Colors

if(StateName() = 'Group 1', rgb(152, 171, 206),

if(StateName() = 'Group 2', rgb(187, 200, 179),

rgb(210, 210, 210)
