Qlikview extensions two questions.

1) If I want to change the Definition.xml file and this does not affect the document in Ajax, do I need to open the document in development every time, delete the old extension and add a new extension?

If yes, did it come up with a madman? If you have hundreds of documents and you need to change only one line in the Definition.xml file, then you need a gun to shoot yourself?

2) In the Definition.xml file for document extension, how can I have access to read a variable, similar to object extension.


<Text Label="Text0" Type="text" Expression="=MyVariable"/>


var msg = this.Layout.Text0.text.toString();

alert(msg );


How do I define my variable in a similar way to extension a object?

I'm using now Script.js:

var CurrentDocument = Qv.GetCurrentDocument();

CurrentDocument.GetAllVariables(function (vars) {
     for (var i = 0; i < vars.length; i++) {
          if (vars[i].name === "MyVariable") {
               MyVariableInJS= vars[i].value;



Is it possible to use similar settings for the Definition.xml file, but to extensions the document, not the object (... "=MyVariable"/> ...   ...   this.Layout.Text0.text.toString()   ...)?
