Object Aesthetics

Good morning All,

I don't have a lot of experience on the application design side of things, and was wondering if there are any tutorials out there on object aesthetics, i.e. making objects look pretty. I have come across a number of qvw's, whose objects look quite refined from list boxes to graphs and charts. I am looking for techniques that will help me move away from standard default colours and settings etc to gain an understanding on how to manipulate object aesthetics.

Many thanks for your help.

the first step is to go in Settings -> document properties and select "styling mode" -> advanced, then look at "object style" ...

Hi Herbert,

there is a nice book 'Learning QlikView Data Visualization' by Karl Pover, which gives you all...

Hi Alessandro,

I like the very simple grey white and green design of this app, couple of questions. Hopefully with answers to these, I will start flowing in the right direction;

1) How do I create a back ground similar to the one used? (With the line running across the top and the green band at the top - looks really nice)

2) How to get the current selections box looking like this?

3) The list boxes objects seem to be glued, and you can't move them around. How was this achieved?

4) How were the colour schemes in the straight table manipulated to get a banded effect?

Sorry to ask a thousand and one questions.

Thank you Herbiec09

Re: Object Aesthetics

Two answers:

3) Look in the Layout Tab of the object properties and untick "Allow Move/SIze".

4) Look in the Style Tab of the object properties, use the "Stripes every..." spinner to change the banding on the rows.
