How can I determine if user uses IE Plugin or Desktop?

Hi,

Is there some simple function that allows me to check if the user accesses the document using the Desktop?

The case is that I want to disable some buttons if the user does not use IE plugin or AJAX.

BR,

-Christian

Hi Christian,

Use functions ClientPlatform() and QlikViewVersion().

  • Ajax: The first will return the browser version (for example, "browser.MSIE 9.0" or "browser.chrome").
  • IE Plugin: The second will return the version ended in ".10" for plugin, and ClientPlatform() empty.

Hope that helps.
