Export Widget to PDF or Image

Anyone know how to export a widget to PDF or Image. 

It's an option when I right click the widget but it just shows a blank page on the PDF/Image after exporting. 

Did Qlik put this out there knowing it doesn't work?

Based on my conversation with @swr, looks like this will be in next release.

"Starting with Qlik Sense 3.0 it is possible to include a visualization extension (which qWidget basically is) in a PDF export. The next version of qWidget will use that new capability."

HI Michael,

I think you need to create a javascript file and use

definition : properties, support : { export: true }, paint : function($element, layout) {

Uday,

I just tested this on an extension and it worked.  Thanks for posting this info.  I've been waiting for this functionality for awhile. 

I'm still working through how to get this working for a widget. 

I can't edit this property in the widget editor. 

If I get it working, I'll post it here.

HI MIchael,

Am glad that it helped you.

You said you have tested it on the extension and it worked. Am wondering did you tested it on an extension which is using either D3 or bootstrap external resources?

Becuase when I tried it on the extension I have created it worked but somehow when am trying on other extensions it's not working like Sense navigation, Word Cloud and few others.

If you could shed some light on this it would be much helpful.

Am really looking forward how you gonna add it to widgets.

Thanks,

I'm having the same issue.  Some of my extensions are not exporting.  I'm not sure why.

I think your hunch is right.  My D3 extensions are not exporting.

Any luck with the widgets?

Did you managed to export the widgets?

Thanks,

No luck so far.  Mike Tarallo said he would look into it but not sure if I'll hear back.
