Refer to a document property via two strings

Kieran Martin

Recommended Posts


I am in a position where for various reasons I want to combine two strings to refer to a document property in the context of a spotfire expression.

For example

DocumentProperty(Concatenate("string1", "string2"))

This will error, while


will not.

How do I get it to recognise combined strings I'm aware I can do this in ironpython but would ideally like to stay in an expression.

I'm having this same issue and can't figure out a solution. Seems like the DocumentProperty() can only take a string and not an expression that results in a string as the argument. I've been trying to find a workaround either by using a custom expression function that evaluates the string (can't figure out how to reference a doc prop in the expression function) or an expression function that returns the expression I want as a string (can't figure out how to make spotfire convert a string to an expression).




If you've figured out a solution please post it here as this has been extremely frustrating and it pretty critical to how I want to set up my analysis.

Unfortunately, this is not possible in spotfire.
