Communication between Qlikview Extension object and Qlikview possible?

Hi,

I have created a Qlikview document that contains a table box. This table box contains  ID, Name, Phone Number, Address of employees as data. Also included in this document is an Extension object. This Extension object might be a graph of nodes with each node representing an employee. Now I want to make selections in the Extension object ( i.e. select a node in the graph) and this selection should be reflected in Qlikview table box (i.e. the corresponding employee row in table box should be highlighted).

What I am basically looking for is a way to reflect selections made in the Extension object to Qlikview. The Extension object can be anything and not just a graph.

Is this possible? Any help would be deeply appreciated.

Thanks,

Debina

If you check the sdk the data object exposes several options for you.

Stephen Redmond also have a good blog series to get you started, http://qliktips.blogspot.se/2011/01/beginners-guide-to-qlikview-extension_4612.html

I have attached sample .qar and .qvw files. The .qar file renders a web page in a frame. What I want is to be able to reflect selections made in the web page to Qlikview. For example, if I click "Services" tab, I want to be able to display "Services" in the text box object. ( i.e. Selected value is : Services )

Is this possible? Please help.

Hi.

I don't know if that is possible...

..But when googling around about iFrames and "click events", it seems like it will not be possible unless you are allowed to add functions/code into the iFramed webpage to send back values to the iFrame.

So in your example, where you have qlik.com as the iFramed webpage I would guess that this is not possible for you to have the extension knowing what is clicked inside the iFrame.


It is possible to add a click event on the extension that knows that you are clicking inside the iFrame, but knowing what you are clicking on seems difficult or even impossible.


But if you are iFraming your own webpage, it should be possible. But I leave the question open, I know too little about this really... I'm only guesing here...
