Alternative Method for Container Object

Hi Frnds,

I trying to Develop an app but in Qlik sense i can use some of the features like Container abject and Sliders.

Kindly help me with any alternative option for this. Am new to Qlik sense.

Thanks in advance,

Regards,

Vignesh

But in Clik sense there is no option to create buttons also. Only Filter pane i can create where i can choose only Dimensions.

Instead of buttons you could use a listbox which contained an extra field with the object-names and use a getfieldselections() on this field for hide/show your objects.

This is not (yet) possible. Also at this moment variables can only be created in script.

Okey thanks, but how about creating container in Qlik sense. ?

No Containers either.  There are some extension objects coming out that help with this kind of sheet organization.

Worth keeping your eye on http://branch.qlik.com and github.com

For example, there is an extension to set variable values through a button extension in Qlik Sense here.

You could use variables not to hide objects, but to conditionally change the measure or expression used in an object for example.

‌If you are already using Qlik Sense 2.1.1 here is a visualization extension which allows you to create buttons to jump to another sheet or e.g. just change a variable, etc.

Hi Jonatha,

I created a container extension  and iam passing the object id and getting the results.

Now the issue is  when i try to create a snapshot and create a story it says objectID not found.

Does qliksense  support container objects, if so when trying to create story its not identifying the objectid.

Please find the post  Not able to Capture the snapshot and add to the Story

Thanks

i've tested with a few other extensions and they work in stories. Which extension r u using ?  Can you send the link where it is posted in branch and github ?  I won't know how to recode this to make it work but you could let the author know about it . perhaps others have already done so and you can check for replies. github and branch are the best places to log issues with extensions.
