Could someone help me with installing an extension in QlikView Personal Edition, if possible?
I've downloaded the .qar file and then double clicked it. I get a message that seems to say that the installation was successful, but once I go into the web view and try to look at the Extension Objects tab, there is nothing there. Under Settings -> Document Properties -> Extensions I can see the extension under Active Extensions.
In what I've read, extensions are to be installed in the Extensions folder (Subfolder of QlikView in Program Files), but I do not have such a folders.
Any insight will be greatly appreciated!
It sounds like you've installed a Document extension. Object extensions are what's available in the webview Extension Objects pane
You will find your extension in C:\Users\<UserName\AppData\Local\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\
It might help if you share the extension you downloaded, it might just be a broken one.
Yes, I see them in there under Active Extensions but the functionality the extensions provide are not evident in the document, even in WebView
There are two types of extensions:
1) Document : Are installed into c:\Users\[youruser]\appdata\local\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Document. They´re activated into your Document Settings
2) Objects : Are installed into c:\Users\[youruser]\appdata\local\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Objects. They´re used as an usual object (graph or list box)
Aha! I was looking in the wrong place! I followed your path and just had to show hidden files once I was in the [youruser] folder. From there I navigated to the Documents folder and edited the extension's .css file which was set up so that no changes would appear unless you edited some of the code.
