Re: Open Source Geospatial Mapping Extension using KML files

Hi,

I was trying to add another measere in defination.xml  file in this extension.

But After adding in defination.xml

<Measurement Label="Pop Up" Initial="Pop Up Value " />

DynProperties changes automatically.

Now after doing this, the map stopped working....

Is it required to edit some other setting to add another field.

I was using this code to fetch this new measurement..


                    for (var rowIx = 0; rowIx < _this.Data.Rows.length; rowIx++) {
                       

var row = _this.Data.Rows[rowIx];

var thisPop=row[3].text;

am i doing somthing wrong,,...just by changing Defination.xml, or QVPP file, the map stopped working..

Please suggest.

Thanks and Regards

Re: Open Source Geospatial Mapping Extension using KML files

Unfortunately it is a problem in the qlikview extensions: once you change the structure of the data your extension is receiving (like adding Text values, dimensions or expressions) the object that were created with an older structure won't work anymore.

I never found a workaround for this, so my rule of thumb is to always create more expressions and texts than I need when starting development to be able to use them without breaking older objects.

Re: Open Source Geospatial Mapping Extension using KML files

Hi Arun,

It seems like the XML name tags cant relate with the names in the QV project.

But if it is working fine in the desktop... can it be an encoding problem?


Does it happen for any selection you do?

Re: Open Source Geospatial Mapping Extension using KML files

Hi,

The map just does't show on ajax, anything is selected on not.

Same application with same extension works fine on same server's desktop view.

I did,n get what is encoding problem.....state names in QV and xml are matching perfectly.

Thanks and Regards

By encoding i mean character encoding, but now we know thats not the problem as your desktop view is in the same server.

I dont know if this helps but, In the server i did installed the extension in two different folders:

  • Local folder = C:\Users\myuseraccount\AppData\Local\QlikTech\QlikView\Extensions\Objects
  • Server folder = C:\ProgramData\QlikTech\QlikViewServer\Extensions\Objects

Including the XML file, in both folders (so to run in the desktop and in the web client).

Other than that...

If you want, send me your XML and a test qvw to try in my server.

Regards,

Joao

Re: Open Source Geospatial Mapping Extension using KML files

Hi Brian,

it seems you're the one to contact about maps extension.

I'd like to build my own .qar file. Can you explain me how to do that?

What kind of file do I need (xml, kml, others...)

I tried to reach a site with codec which is given in this post but Mc Afee pointed it as no secure.

So if you can just tell me how to get (or build) coordinates and how to build a .qar file i would be pleased.

Thank you

Chris

Re: Open Source Geospatial Mapping Extension using KML files

Hi,

QAR files are just like normar archive file with .qar extension (Qlikview Archive).

Just Archive your extension folder, change the extension from .zip to .qar and qar file is ready.

Thanks and Regards
