List objects in Sheets

Is there a way to have  a list of all objects(let say in Textbox) that are currently in the file?

Let say comma separated ' 'CH01','LB01'....

Re: List objects in Sheets

Try starting from here, it should help:

sub test
set sheet = ActiveDocument.Sheets("SH01")
For i = 0 to 50

set so = sheet.SheetObjects(i)
id = so.GetObjectId
msgbox(id)

next
end sub

Re: List objects in Sheets

is the a way to pass that to TextBox?

Re: List objects in Sheets

What you can do in a macro is to assign result to a variable.  After this you can show it in a text box of course.

Re: List objects in Sheets

You could also read the meta-data from the qvw and from layout-export and use these as tables and fields:

/****************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Beginn DocumentsObjects - Auslesen Attribute SOE (Sheet, Objects & Expressions + Groups, Reports, Bookmarks, Variables) aus QVW's (Metadaten XML-Struktur)

*****************************************************************************************************************************************************************

Aufgabe:

- Lädt die ausgewählte Meta-Daten dieser Anwendung ein

Hintergrund:

- schneller und direkter Zugriff auf die Objektstruktur dieser Anwendung um die Sheet-Oberflächen besser entwickeln zu können, z.B. welches Objekt befindet sich

  auf welchem Sheet

- QlikView-Anwendungen sind eine Mischung zwischen propertieren Datenstrukturen und XML-Datenstruktur, so daß nicht alle Meta-Daten aus der Anwendung selbst

  ausgelesen werden können --> die hier fehlenden Meta-Daten können aber über den Export von Struktur-und Layout-Daten anschließend wieder eingelesen werden

- Export dieser Daten kann Zentral über ein separates Steuerungsfile und/oder direkt in dieser Anwendung per Makro ausgelöst werden (nicht alle Datenbereiche

  sind GUI erreichbar)

Datenquelle:

- diese Anwendung selbst --> Documentname()

- ....\DataStructures\AppLayout\AppLayout_' & DocumentName() & '.xml'

ToDo:

- Aufnahme weiterer Meta-Daten, z.B. Mem-Files

Re: List objects in Sheets

Hi Robert

in the same directory where you application is create a folder and name it like so "AppName-prj"

save open and save your App

if you open the prj folder u will see a number of xml files created

place script somewhere on you App in the load script or create  a separate App for testing purposes and place the following code in the load script

make use of fields generated

if u have any queiries let me know

Set vFolder = 'Path to your prj folder\test-prj';

for each File in filelist(vFolder& '\*CH0*.xml') //file names of all objects you want to bring in

EXPRESSIONDATA:

LOAD

RowNo() as Position, filename() as fileName,

[GraphLayout/Frame/Name/v] as ChartName,

[_ExpressionVisuals/ExpressionVisualDef/Label/v] as ExpressionName,

  

  [_ExpressionDatas/ExpressionData/Definition/v]as ExpressionCalc,

   

   

[_ExpressionVisuals/ExpressionVisualDef/Label/v]

&': ' &[_ExpressionDatas/ExpressionData/Definition/v]

as

Expression

,

left(filename(),4) as ObjectID

FROM $(vFolder)\*CH0*.xml (XmlSimple, Table is [GraphProperties]);

// End of [CH01.xml] LOAD statements

CHARTDATA:

LOAD

[ChartProperties/Title/Title/v]as ChartTitle,

[TableProperties/ExpansionInfo/ExpansionData/Pos/DimName] as DimensionName,

   

[Dimensions/ChartDimensionDataDef/PseudoDef/Name] as DimensionCalc

   

,   

left(filename(),4) as ObjectID

FROM $(vFolder)\*CH0*.xml (XmlSimple, Table is [GraphProperties]);

// End of [CH01.xml] LOAD statements

exit Script;

left

join

(CHARTDATA) load

ObjectID

,replace

(ObjectID

, 'CH','') as

CHTID

, concat

(distinct

DimensionCalc

) as

DimensionsConcat

REsident

CHARTDATA group

by

ObjectID

;

left

join

(EXPRESSIONDATA) load

ObjectID

,

concat

(distinct

Expression

,'

' ) as

ExpressionsConcat

REsident

EXPRESSIONDATA group

by

ObjectID

;

Re: List objects in Sheets

My approach includes more than the object-id's and therefore the script is a bit longer and more complex. But you could have deeper insights in your apps. Results from my script are:
