Input Box ? Extension Available ?

Need to update/change variables. Is there any Inbox functionality in Sense or Extension ?

Re: Input Box ? Extension Available ?

You can create this functionality with an Extension.

Having the following code in the paint method of the Extension would create an slider that affects an script defined varable called Slider.

var app = qlikview.currApp();

$element.html( '<input type="range" min="0" max="100" style="width:98%">' );

var elem = $element[0].firstChild;

elem.onchange = function() {

  app.variable.setContent('Slider', this.value );

};

app.variable.getContent('Slider', function(value) {

  elem.value = value.qContent.qString;

});

Thx for the response. But I want the ability to update/change variables within the App. Not having to use the Load Editor.

I can not come up with a workaround for this problem. In The Sense many elements are missing. I think the addition of the elements in Roadmap Development

Richard,

Currently there are no native objects to deal with variable editing. BUT there is an extension available at Qlik Branch: Range Slider.

Thank You Johan. I am an end user and do not have the  skills necessary to build Extensions. I guess I need to wait for an extension to be developed or Qlik to incorporate Inbox functionality into product,

Hi Richard,

you might want to take a look at http://branch.qlik.com/ , where you can find outgoing extension projects. This can be a good starting place to find extensions, without having to master the building process on your own .
