Discussion board where members can learn more about Integration, Extensions and API’s for Qlik Sense.
I use Visual Studio 2013 / c#:
Is there any possibility to automate / programmatically use Qlik View Application / Document ?
I also use QlikView Personal Edition 12 (free / not QLikView Sense)
Which are the right references, do I need a plugin ?
I read several articles but did not found a suitable answer which dlls I really need.
Can anyone send me sample code for getting access to local qLik instance and objects (I do not have server solution)
and which dlls I need and where I find them ?
Thanks in Advance
QlikOCX q = new QlikOCX();
q.OpenDocument("C:\\ProgramData\\QlikTech\\QlikView Tutorial\\German\\Arbeiten mit QlikView\\Test.qvw");
here i got error: catastrophic failure
Go to Solution.
1. you asked in the Qlik Sense Area and not in the QlikView.
2. Why you like to start a new project with QlikView.
3. My personal oppinion: don't try to "flogging a dead horse", make new thinks with sense.
we started som time ago to test and use qlikview,
did not really understand what qlikview sense could mean in the future ?
I had no understanding which will be the best way for future.
So if I understand your comment correctly then qlikview is not supported or at least not developped futher any more ?
So would you recommend to use qlikview sense ? is this also free ?
Qlikview is definitely still supported and being developed, but the ability to extend and integrate through APIs is one of the areas where Qlik Sense provides a lot of advantages over Qlikview.
but is there nay possibility to do it ?
I just found some infos about calling qlikview from external c# or vb.net, but not working in my case.
has anybody some line of sample code and knows the references to get active document, active sheet and the fields etc ?
thanks in advance
I'm afraid this is outside of my area of expertise, but I was advised that there is this thread that might be related to what you are trying to do:
Otherwise my recommendation is that you post your question in one of the QlikView forums as you are likely to get more readers with knowledge in this area there:
