QVX  - Create Your Own Data Connector

There can be sources of data which are not available through ODBC  or OLE DB sources and are not readable as flat files. QVX (QlikView  data eXchange) is a file/stream format for data which allows you to  create your own connector for input into QlikView. A QVX formatted file  contains metadata describing a table of data and the actual data.  The  QVX SDK contains two examples (with sample c# code) of extracting data  from the Windows Event log for both QVX file production and streaming  data directly into QlikView.

Where is the Automation API for QV11 based an qv.exe (not ocx) ?

Not applicable

If you install the QlikView Documentation package for v11, the API guide will be located in
ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikView Documentation\Automation.

Actually the OCX API and the Qv.exe are the same. The OCX has some additional events and properties outlined in one of the tabs of the API guide, but all the automation members are 100% the same.

Thanks Ingemar Carlo,

but it doesn't seem to work. It seems that i can't use the OCX Library for QV.exe. Delphi says something like "Class not registered". Are you sure i can use the OCX Library for QV.exe ? Can you send a small example for me ?

Not applicable

The Type Library can only be used with QlikView OCX. You will not be able to embed Qv.exe within a development tool like Delphi. There is a license to use QlikView OCX in this way that is reserved for OEM partners only.

RE: Ticketing examples of QV 11

"Look in the Program Files install directory for QlikView and search for the QVSTicket.htm file".

I have installed QV Server 11.0 SR2.

I have searched through C:\Program Files, C:\Program Files (x86), C:\ProgramData .. but did not find the referenced file.

Is there some other package I need to install?

These are the subdirs of my install directory:

C:\Program Files\QlikView>dir /b /ad

Directory Service Connector

Distribution Service


Management Service

Is there a v11 for "QlikView Management Service API Examples - Version10"?

Is there a way to track what changes are made to content? I get notifications that a change was made but I can't determine what changes was?

What's the status of Web Parts for SharePoint?  Is it still supported and is there any documentation?  The brochure section of qlik.com is missing the PDF and I don't see it included in the SDK.  Please advise.


QlikView Web Parts for SharePoint is a separate installation package, not included in the SDK. It is still supported and will be maintained for SharePoint 2010.

QlikView SR5 will provide additional support for SharePoint 2013 and SharePoint Online, using QlikView Workbench (not QlikView Web Parts).
