Re: Create Nprinting On demand button

Hi,

On-Demand in Qlik NPrinting 17+ works different than in 16 versions. In 17+ you have the single On-Demand button in the toolbar and when you click it you see the list of all reports with the On-Demand option enabled. Select the report you want to generate and it will run. There are not any other kind of native buttons that can be placed on the QlikView document.

An alternative could be use the APIs to run the On-Demand reports.

Best Regards,

Ruggero

Re: Create Nprinting On demand button

Hi,

These documents are related to Qlik NPrinting 16 but the first screenshot of this conversation is related to a 17+ version that works in a completely different way.

Re: Create Nprinting On demand button

Thank you Ruggero,

Yes I have the 17th version. And I want to  use the On demand APIs to do this.

Have you already tried to work around the native button with the On Demand APIs? Is there any documentation about this?

Thanks

Re: Create Nprinting On demand button

Hi,

Official documentation about APIs is here https://help.qlik.com/en-US/nprinting/June2018/Content/Extending/Intro-Extending.htm. The page is related to June 2018, if you are using a different version you need to select the corresponding page. I suggest to update to June 2018.

I never tried to create a button to run On-Demand for the access point so I cannot supply a specific solution for this. I know that there are APIs to run On-Demand and I tested the APIs on simple pieces of code.

Best Regards,

Ruggero

hi rpcbuederbenjaminstalwar1

I have the similar requirement and unable to achieve it.

Can you please help me or any other workaround to create a button on Qlikview document which replaces on demand option on access point.

Re: Create Nprinting On demand button

Hi,

The Qlik NPrinting On-Demand for 17+ creates only the button on the Access Point and it works only with QlikView connections.

At the moment (September 2018) any other different solution need to be developed by using APIs.

Best Regards,

Ruggero
