Qliksense Extension Variable Interpretation

Hi

I have tried installing extensions on Qliksense server. The extensions are successfully appearing as objects on the chart. However, the variables I define on these extensions are not getting interpreted in my chart expressions.

Example. I used extension 'Slider' and assigned a variable 'v_test'.

If I use this variable in my chart expression as $(v_test), it is not getting recognized. Could you please help?

Re: Qliksense Extension Variable Interpretation

Have you pre-created the variables in the qvf app ?

I usually create them in the load script.

No. I have not created them in load script. Do they have to be created in the load script? Is that how these extensions work?

Depends on how the extension is written, but most expect the variable to already exist.

You can also create variables in the qvf app editor as well, but I do prefer creating them in the load script though.
