qlik-visual component and master items


Is it possible to reference a master item from a qlik-visual component instead of hard-coding the measure formula in a mashup? I would like to use the Qlik application to define the measures and dimensions, and then refer to these master items as parameters in my qlik-visual component.

Thank you!

Yes it is, but you need the id from the measure or dimension. Specify that as qLibraryId. If you are refering to a measure, you also need to add qType:"measure", otherwise the api will assume it's a dimension.

For the visualization API this is described here:

The Visualization API

qlik-visual simply wraps the visualization API, so the same stuff works, only you have to stringify all javascript objects.

Hope this helps

Thank you for your answer! Could you tell me how to get the libraryid for a metric? It doesn't appear in the single page...

I have the same question. Is there a way to find out qLibraryId of a Master Measure or Dimension ?
