You may be aware, that you can pass additional query strings when opening a QlikView app from the AccessPoint in order to pass field selections or bookmarks, to open a desired Worksheet or just one object instead of the entire app.
There is good documentation around, for example by Stefan Walther here QlikView Mashups - Simple Document Integration
However, getting the syntax right can be quite challenging.
This little tool will help you compute the proper URL in a simple manner, as at the end you just make selections and the tool will compute the corresponding url and all querystrings automatically.
If you want to see a how-to.use videos check this:
New Version v1.12 (24-Oct-13) is using the syntax select=LBxx,(value1|value2|valueN) instead of select=LBxx,value1,value2,valueN ... this simply works better and allows to pass wildcards, too 😉
Thank-you for the creative work. We have used this and other solutions that you've provided.
We're hitting a little snag in that this spawns a new browser tab...and if we stay within the same document, then the two documents eventually conflict. Is there a way to force the resultant hyperlink to stay in the same window. I'd like to author my own HTML to solve, but currently resigned to <url> methodology.
<update>This is now more a curiosity, as we're using triggers to solve the use case.
Hi. There is a Document Extension which will redirect ALL hyperlinks inside of a QlikView app to "_self", so to the same browser tab, not opening a new one each time. I am afraid, this is then global for the whole app, not depending on some URLs to stay in the same window, some to open in another tab ...The extension is called "OnlySelf" and consists of only 2 files which are in the .ZIP. Unpack those into this folder
(Create necessary folders if they do not yet exist. if this is your first Extension, the entire Extension subfolder tree will not be present).
With IE Plug-In those URLs would not work. Are you trying to achieve QlikView App chaining (link from one app to the other) or to jump from anywhere in your intranet to the QlikView Accesspoint and set fields, bookmarks, sheets just like with the Ajax-client?
Hi, thanks for your reply.
I'm trying to go from one app to another. Both apps are in accesspoint and I need to pass document selections from the first app to the second - with the IE plug in rather than using AJAX.
