Qlik Sense Extension: Color and Data handling properties
I was wondering if it is possible to reuse the standard Qlik Sense object properties for coloring and data handling (in addons). In all my extensions, I always worked in the following way:
Coloring: I ask the user to add a measure to define the coloring. The coloring can then happen on basis of the measure values or on basis of an expression. I used this approach as I didn't find the standard color property as a reusable component for extensions. Making a custom coloring section is neither an option, as the expression entered in a text box are not evaluated by the Qlik Engine. In my extension, it is just inputted as raw text and this means I should write the logic for interpreting expressions myself.
Data handling: Again, I ask the user to add a measure to define the condition for drawing the extension. I have the same problem with interpreting the expression when I create a custom property. I found the data handling addon available as a resuable component, but it returns only a blank space.
