Actions "Select in Field"
and "Lock Field"
are used on a specific field in QlikView. After reloading the qvw document, selection is cleared but the field remains locked.Example:
- Open the attached sample qvw document.
- Click button "Select & Lock". This triggers 2 actions: "Select In Field" then "Lock Field", which selects values 1, 2 and lock field Number
- Reload the document. Selection in field Number is now cleared but the field remains locked.
The behavior is a known bug in QlikView 12.x, which has been reported before in bug QV-10607
While waiting for the bug fix, a possible work-around solution is to create a bookmark including intended selections, then use action "Apply Bookmark"
instead of "Select in Field",
followed by "Lock Filed"
