What is happening in the background when I hit End Task

When developing and troubleshooting applications a lot of the time when I click End Here, the application freezes and I need to go into Task Manager to close the task.  What is Qlikview doing when this occurs?

Hi Andrew,

It is probably still loading / droping some data (you can see the RAM increase / decreasing in the task manager) and so it seems to be frozen.

Say you're loading a big data set into qlik and want to debug it somehow. If it's to large and you hit the end button, let's say in the middle of a load statement, it will first need to complete this operation to terminate the debugger.

When debuggin, it's a good practise to enable the "Limited Load" to check something, so it doesn't present this behaviour and seems frozen, because operations are quite quick to perform.
