Triggers is not working when it run through QMC

Hi Friends,

I have created a trigger in onopen to select in field, when i run manually in qlikview it is working fine, if i run through QMC that trigger is not working means it is not selecting the value in field. Please suggest me if any other approach is there to achieve this.

Re: Triggers is not working when it run through QMC


what type of triggers you're using ?

are you doing an EXIT SCRIPT just before pushing the app to the server ?

My collegue told me about this, if he put exit script and don't run the entire code, the triggers dissapear.. I didn't test it


Re: Triggers is not working when it run through QMC

OnOpen triggers are not supported for the Ajax client, but in my experience they mostly work (they will always work in the Desktop as  both developer or client).

If you need the selection on the field in order to perform the next reload, you will need to think of an alternative, like using parameters in the QMC task.

Publishing a document does not make any change to how the OnOpen triggers work, except for an eventual reduction of data, so the values to be selected are not available in the tables after reloading.
