Issues with the Container object

Dear QVCommunicity,

I use a QV 11.0 SR2 and experience a strange behaviour of the containter type of object. I save the qvw file with one screen position but then in some, unknowm, instances I see the minimized icon and the restored object as a small square I need to increase with a mouse. Is there a common problems with such an object?

Please find the screenshots for better understanding of the issue.

Instead of:

Screen2.jpg

Or I see only this when I doubleclick the label above:

Screen3.jpg

Instead of (please note I showed here only a part of the container due to real data):

Screen4.jpg

Thank you

Re: Issues with the Container object

I've got a similar issue with containers in one of my documents and haven't discovered why it is just this one document affected.  I am able to open the document with the containers sized correctly when minimized, but if I close it (without saving) and re-open, the containers are shrunk to 17x17. My developers working on the same document don't get the problem when they do the same so seems to be something with my installation.

I have set up a macro to reset the containers which isn't ideal but at least lets me work in the document. One note is that the containers must all be minimized for the macro to resize correctly. Hope this gives you some ideas ...

sub fixObjMinSize

a=Array("CT08","CT09","CT12","CT13","CT15","CT22","CT23","CT24","CT25","CT26","CT27")

for each x in a

    setObjproperties(x)

next

end sub

sub setObjproperties(obj)

    set ct = activedocument.getsheetobject(obj)

    set ctprop = ct.GetProperties

    ctprop.Frame.MinimizedRect.Width = 688

    ctprop.Frame.MinimizedRect.Height = 125

    ct.SetProperties ctprop

end sub

.. the size values are approx 3.125x the size entered in the object properties (on my machine anyway).

Re: Issues with the Container object

Hi

Have either of you managed to find a solution to this issue, I am having the same issue with my containers, (below the highlighted section is my chart), this has only just started happening in my documents, all of them, it renders fine on the web/accesspoint but makes design work very hard.

I upgraded to the most up to date version of Qlikview and the problem disappeared
