Dynamic title change as figure is clicked

  • 1.  Dynamic title change as figure is clicked

    Posted Tue April 13, 2021 08:59 AM
    Is it possible to create dynamic title as part of a figure is chosen? For example, I want ABC or EFG (as in the diagram below) to appear in the title, as they are chosen. 


    Kind regards,
    Rizwan

    @Rizwan Iqbal If you are using a dashboard you can do the following:

    1. Create a custom Calculation that is Maximum([Data Item Title])

    2. Add the custom calculation to a List

    3. Remove the title of the List

    4. Position and size the List widget as needed.

    See screenshots attached for examples:

    Hi Denny,

    Thanks for the message.

    Could you be explicit as to what removing the title means? In my case, the variables ABC and EFG do not come from a calculated variable. I thought of nevertheless creating a calculated variable and dragged the variable to it. It accepted. I saved it with say Chart_title. Then I went to Chart_title​ properties by clicking the three dots and removed the name of the variable. I dragged then the list widget to the dahsboard and added Chart_title variable created there. I get an error saying Invalid DataItem index. If I Keep the title under properties and drag it, I get the usual list selection.

    Best wishes,
    Rizwan
