Re: QlikSense fixing column width

HI

The only way I know you can do this is to Build your tables in a Pivot table. The basic table will always allow the user to change the column size its just the way Qlik has been made. this does have its benefits as it allows the user to expand and move the data to make it easier to read.

If you really need the Columns to be fixed then best to use a Pivot Table

Hope this helps

Re: QlikSense fixing column width

I do this by creating a Sub Status in the Load Script

So if I have a column with Multiple values like payment status with the below in the column

Paid

Waiting

settled

invoiced

And I only wanted to see 'Paid' the Load Script would be Like this:

Load * Inline [

'Payment Status', 'Paid Only'

'Paid' , 'Paid'

];

then in the Pivot when you add Paid Only as the Columns it will only show Paid and exclude the rest

if you can give me the column name and the fields I can write the load script for you 

Hope this helps

Re: QlikSense fixing column width

OK but the orginal question was to fix the column width  in QlikSense.

If ok, Is the column width saved per end-user ?

Qlik Sense auto sizes objects and pages based on the screen size so there is no way to adjust or fix the column widths.

Qliksense has a responsive design and this helps in giving a very intuitive look. This is the reason why the columns resize and adjust to the screen resolution. If you still would like to fix the column width, you will have to go with an extension object.

Hi Marc,

I am not sure if there is an extension already out there but its surely developable.
