Load Images

Hi all,

I'd like to load some images into Qlik Sense, and make them sensitive to filters.

My datas are like these:

images:

LOAD * INLINE

[

ImageName,Path,

'a','PATH\a.png'

'b','PATH\b.png'

'c','PATH\c.png'

]

;

After loaded the datas, I've downloaded and installed the extension that you can find here:

Loading image using expressions

I've tried to use it, but I've had some problem, nothing happened using as dimension "Path".

So, instead of put as dimension "Path" I've used info(Path) and something changes.

The results is in the following image: as you can see the result is not what I need.

screenshot.PNG

So I've tried to use:

images:

info LOAD * INLINE

[

ImageName,Path,

'a','PATH\a.png'

'b','PATH\b.png'

'c','PATH\c.png'

]

;

But the results have been the same.

Lastly I've tried to use an .xlsx file, but the results has been the same above.

Does anybody know how can I make work that extension, or let me know another way to reach the results I need?

Thanks

Re: Load Images

The extension you referred to needs the images in the Images folder it seems:

3.- I droped the images I wanted to display on the path where the rest of the Qlik Sense Images are:

C:\Users\<your user name>\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Content\Default\Images

But perhaps you can use the standard functionality of Qlik Sense 2.1: Qlik Sense - Bundling Images with Apps

Re: Load Images

First, thank you a lot!

I've dropped the images into the "classical path" you have said to me and it works!

I've seen the video, but I do not understand if (in my example) if I choose "a" on a filter, "a.png" is displayed. But this is the right answer to my first question (if it is sensible to filters).

The real question (sorry, it is not mentioned before, but I think it is not correct open another discussion) is:

if I had a database (an OLE DB connection), and into this DB there is a table like

     Name   Path

     a          path/a.png

     b          path/b.png

     c          path/c.png

linked to n tables.

Is it possible to display those images and have them "alive" with all the Qlik Sense features like sensibility to filters?

I.E. filter with Name, and a tool that display Path (the images, not literally the path).

Re: Load Images

‌i saw the other day that a user had created a cards extension that lists names with an associated image. 

Perhaps you could  use that?Cards! New extension released on Qlik Branch
