Extension : paint function call and user selections


Is there a way to know if the paint function of an extension is being called after a selection is made by the user or for another reason (a change in settings for example) ?

I would like the paint function to act differently in such a case.

Best regards,


Note: Should this post be in the "Qlik Sense" section or in the "Extensions" section ?

Re: Extension : paint function call and user selections

Sorry for late response, but I hope to have the answer to your Question. Reffering to the Developer Help

paint($element, layout)

Method used to render the visualization. Will be called every time the visualization should be rendered, either because of new data from the server or because it has been re-sized.

Let us know how you do. Please mark the appropriate replies as helpful / correct so our team and other members know that your question(s) has been answered to your satisfaction.
