Performance of extension object

Hi all,

  I have doubt regarding performance of extension object.

When does extension object code runs (Like it runs all the time or when we reload or open the document) ?

Please help me.

Thanks and Regards,

Extensions are client side objects, the code contained run when it is active.

Hi Vivek,

Extensions run your web code. It depends on how the programming was done. If, for example, you run a JavaScript setInterval function tu run continuously every 50 milliseconds it will do so. I you run a for loop, once it ends it will no longer run.

Once you make a selection, or change a tab or press a QlikView button, the extension will run again from the start.

Hope it helps!

Hi Vivec,

Thus the performance depends on the browser/client computer. It is not very useful to send "3 million" rows or similar through the extension.
