How dynamically change picture in textbox backround

Hi

i have a dashbord for analyse purchasing articles. I have there some textboxis with article parameters, price, description etc.

These textboxes are visible, if selected is only one article (partnum). I would like to add another textbox  in which the image of this article is dynamically displayed. I have a  folder with pictures and a excel file, where are article numbers (partnumbers) and picture path and file names. I can add reading this excel file to script, but  i need a macros, which will load selected article picture to textbox bacround.

Do you have any suggestions on how to do this?

Re: How dynamically change picture in textbox backround

Is this a qlik sense or a qlikview question?

If it's qlikview; use the bundle load ; please refer to this:

Loading Images into QlikView

If it's qlik sense: that's not possible.

Macros don't work in Qlik Sense.  There is no macro editor in Qlik Sense.


Maybe you can search Qlik Branch for an extension.

Re: How dynamically change picture in textbox backround

Hi

sorry, I forgot to really mention that I need it for Qlikview and it seems that there is a solution to my problem in this sample file: "Loading Images into QlikView.qvw".

I see only one problem, if I understand it correctly, then all the displayed images will be loaded to the QlikView file and if the number of images is large, then the qvw file will also large. If I had about 20 pictures, it is not problem, but  I have about 600 pictures or more. Therefore, I am looking for a method to download using a suitable macro only one picture at a time. So far, unfortunately, I have not found the appropriate macro or method.
