How to pass variable to Qlikview Extensions

Hi All,

I'm trying to create a Qlikview Extension on a dashboard with multiple tabs, and with each tab having its own Comments object.

The version of Qlikview I'm using is 11.2.12664 SR9 (x64). This is my definition.xml

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

<ExtensionObject  Path="Commentaries" Label="Commentaries"

                  Description="Commentaries Extension"

                  Type="object">

<Dimension Label="QlikView Field" Initial="" />

    <Measurement Label="Do Not Change" Initial="sum(1)"/>

<Text Label="OSUser" Expression="=vCurrentUser"/>

<Text Label="MonthNum" Expression="=vSelectedMonthNo"/>

<Initiate Name="Caption.Font.Italic" Value="1" />

    <Initiate Name="Caption.Text" value="Markets LT Comments" />

</ExtensionObject>

However, I'm not able to retrieve the variable using this.Layer.Text0.text or this.Layer.Text1.text in script.js

Am I doing something incorrectly or is there a real bug in 11.2 SR9 ?

I've read ppl having success, so I'm not sure.

Can someone pls help? Thanks.
