Discussion board where members can learn more about Integration, Extensions and API’s for Qlik Sense.
I am trying to build an app with N sheets and to have hyperlinks to navigate to any sheet from any given sheet. E.g. if I am in first sheet, I'll have links to navigate directly to 5th sheet or 6th sheet etc without having to click Next sheet icon multiple times. I don't want to use KPI or text object as these open the sheets in new tab/window. Looks like the extension it.HtmlBox can be used to embed any HTML code, so wondering if I could use it for achieving this, may be using a href or window.open (target _self) but not sure how to get the current page and sheet id to pass as parameters. Anyone has any suggestions for this?
Thanks much for the help.
Nope, not that one. It's for navigating to next/previous sheet, one at a time. I want to navigate to any sheet within the app in one click. e.g. say navigate to sheet 7 directly from sheet 1. I don't want to click the sheet navigator 7 times.
Sheet navigator shows some of the sheets alright. If my app has 20 plus sheets then it's bit of a challenge. Also user requesting for links in the page itself.
That's not what Michael is talking about. He is talking about the Sheet navigator in the upper right of the client.
Is there something wrong with using this to navigate sheets?
This doesn't work perfectly when the app has more sheets (say 20 or more). Additionally user is interested in having either radio buttons or hyperlinks, so just wondering if there is any way of achieving it using extensions.
I just whipped this up. I think this is like what you are looking for. You will have to take on styling it and making it more useful, but I believe it will do what you want.
It's not pretty but it will create an extension object and show the list. You need to supply a dimension, but any dimension will do to make the sheet list render.
