Changing Default Colours in Qlikview Server


Is it possible to change the default colours in the reports deployed in qlikview server?

The current selections are highlighted in green. But as per my requirements i want to change it to blue. I am able to achieve it in my QV Desktop using macros, but when the same report is uploaded in the server, it is not working.

This is the macro i am using

Sub ChangeCol

set up = ActiveDocument.GetApplication.GetUserPreferences

up.CustomSelBgColor(1).PrimaryCol.Col = RGB (168,211,255)

up.CustomSelBgColor(2).PrimaryCol.Col = RGB (255,255,255)

up.CustomSelBgColor(5).PrimaryCol.Col = RGB (125,125,125)

ActiveDocument.GetApplication.SetUserPreferences up

End Sub


Thanks and Regards

Re: Changing Default Colours in Qlikview Server

You could try a document extension. http://community.qlik.com/docs/DOC-3140

Of course, that will only work in Ajax.

To be honest with you this seems like there is too little to gain and too much work to get there so I will kindly suggest your users to accept the default colors.

Re: Changing Default Colours in Qlikview Server

Hi,  Sorry to revive this old post, but i am having the same exact issue.

I have the same macro and it works perfect on the Desktop version.

But when it is uploaded to the server it does not work.

Any ideas how to make this work when the report is on the server?

Thank you!
