List boxes

The list box is the most basic sheet object. It contains a list of all possible values of a specific field. Each row in the list box can represent several records in the loaded table, all with identical values. Selecting one value may thus be equivalent to selecting several records in the loaded table.

Example listbox object sorted by frequency

Number of columns (dimensions and measures)

Most native Qlik Sense chart types are automatically sorted on the dimension content:

  • Numeric content is numerically sorted.
  • Categorical content is alphabetically sorted.
