interaction on a rank

Hi everyone, 

 

I am creating a SAS VA report and there is something I'm pretty sure I can do but can't manage to actually do it. I'm using SAS VA 7.4.

I have a table with names of individuals. I can add a rank on this table to show the x=50 people with the best score on something. 

What I want to do is create a text input control in which the user writes a number, x=20 for instance. And then there would be a link with my interaction and only the 20 people with the best score would appear. 

 

Is it possible? Do you know how to do this? 

 

Thank you very much in advance!

Hi @SophieSaas,

 

Yes you can.. you can do this with parameter as @MikeJenista said.

 

Create a character parameter (Set Max, Min and Current Rank) and Name it as RANK or As you required.

Assign that Rank to your Text Input Control.

Create a Rank for your Object (which is available in Right hand side pane). There you will find Parameter Option (In Rank Tab).

 

Hope this will help.....

 

Thanks,

Teja

I believe you can use a parameter to achieve this.  Ranks can take a parameter as the input for the number, and you can add a UI control to set the parameter value.

 

UPDATE: After a quick check, this is correct for 7.4 Designer, but I don't think it works in Explorer.
