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.

According to documentation on release 11.2 SR5 it specifies Web Parts and not workbench.  When will the workbench part be released?


Hi Robert,

Both Web Parts and Workbench are available on our download site if you go to the tab View All / Search and filter on English - 11.20 - SR 5.

Why can't i download this?


Carlo, I am confused.

There is a statement you made about 'reserved for OEM partners'  I hope you could clarify.

Maybe if I outline what I would like to achieve ?

  • I have a 'developer' license. Normally I just use the QV DT to  create qvws & publish to server.
  • My target users currently go to the Access Point to use my documents.
  • Now, I would like to make a windows app (C#) using OCX
    • The app uses the ActiveX QlikOCX Control to open server documents in a windows form.
    • The app will be distributed to my users to view documents in the app instead of the AP.

Given the above, is this all feasible and using the OCX  as intended' ?

I don't want to start down this route, if at some point I hit a brick wall because I am doing something that the OCX was not intended for.

Your clarification would be appreciated.

Many Thanks
