x-mark on buttons


When I open a qvw file, sometimes x-mark appers on buttons. (like below)

The buttons became nomal after I reload sevral times.

I supporse slow button drawing may cause the problem, but is there something I can do to avoid it?

Only for buttons you are getting like this or for other chart objects too?  If it is only for buttons then recreate the buttons and check.

Hi Naho,

Looks like your buttons has crashed, I will suggest you to create them again.

If you are having tables or charts with Aggr() expressions then you will get like this.  If you are using tables then select any filters which results in loading less records.  For now just use only buttons in the sheet and test whether buttons are loading, if it is loading successfully then restrict the users for selecting the filters to load the Tables.

Thank you again,

Actually, there's only some buttons on the sheet so I don't know if Aggr() expressions have something to do with this problem or not.

The sheet these buttons are on is a menu and I can jump to 2nd sheet which has some charts by clicking them.

the charts on 2nd sheet deal huge data, contain Aggr() expressions, so I think it influence the buttons on the menu sheet.

But still I don't know how to fix it.


Dear Naho,

these lines are just calculation time taken by Qlikview tool when you open the aap.

Depending on the application size/calculation logics/ objects your machine should be capable to loading all in seconds.

if you have better machine configuration check on that machine or let me know the configuration of your machine and application size.

you can check in your task manager how much RAM is getting consumed when you open your Qlikview App.
