Web Document "Close" Button

Hi All,

When you open a document in the accesspoint, in the top right hand corner there is a close button, which does indeed close the document.  However it leaves a blank screen with a restore button in place of close.  This seems counter-intuiative as a user experience.  The expectation is that when a user hits close, they are returned to the accesspoint dashboard to enable them to select another report.

Is there anyway to customise the button to behave in this way?

Thanks,

D

This code is not supported and it is server side and is for SR1 of version 11

Open the opendoc.htm with a text editor and search for

  1. window.open ("http://localhost/qlikview","_self") should be around line 107

Change the localhost in the about to the URL for your server.

  Place the attached opendoc.htm in the C:\Program Files\QlikView\Server\QlikViewClients\QlikViewAjax and restart your webserver.

Re: Web Document "Close" Button

Hi Bill,

That is indeed very usefull and something I will be implementing in future.

However, what I really want to do is return the user to the main accesspoint dashboard when they click "close", not leave them at a blank screen.

Any ideas on how to do this?

Thanks,

Dhiren

I have exactly the same query. Did you find a way to make the close button take you back the main Access Point main page?

Thanks

Bill,

Well we gave this a try but are unable to get it to work - the close button works as before. I'm wondering if you can suggest anything we can do to track down the problem?

OK I have investigated a bit further - it was simply that I hadn't cleared my browser cache - once I did that it worked fine .

Thanks

Do you know how to get this to work in V12.10? new opendoc.htm doesn;t reference the localhost.
