1474929 - Check box not unchecked automatically while using dynamic visibility


After applying dynamic visibility on Xcelsius model take check box as selectors 

  • Check the 1st box to display the 1st chart.
  • Check the 2nd box to replace 2nd chart.
  • Hard to understand that the data displayed in the chart is for which option, checkbox 1 or checkbox 2


 Xcelsius 2008

Reproducing the Issue

  1. Create an Xcelsius Model in 2008.
  2. Create Dynamic visbility based on 3 charts.
  3. Select 3rd check box as selector for dynamic visbility.
  4. Check the 1st box to display the 1st chart.
  5. Check the 2nd box to hide 1st chart and display 2nd chart.
  6. Chart though replaced properly, the 1st check box needs to be manually unchecked to confirm that the data displayed is for the second chart


  1. This is a normal behavior in Xcelsius.
  2. Check boxes are used to compare multiple charts value.


Use a Radio Button or Label Based Menu instead of Check box
