Interacting with QlikView using JavaScript


I am trying to simulate traffic on QlikView dashboards for the purposes of load testing. I have created a number of simple dashboards that I am viewing in a web browser. When I click anywhere on a graph or select a field in a list box, I can see that network traffic is generated as the application filters to display updated results.

I would like to simulate this traffic by opening the dashboards with PhantomJS and pretending to click on a few different places. Ideally, I would like to select an object such as chart or listbox and click on that programmatically but clicking on random coordinates within the page should suffice as well. However, the usual JS/JQuery click() operations do not appear to have any effect within QlikView even when displayed in a browser.

Any input as to how to approach this would be much appreciated.

Use parameter passing within the web URL as a means to initiate actions in QlikView.
