Group Buttons in a Container

In a container, it would be extremely useful to group several buttons in the same tab of a container. For example, if I create 6 buttons for controlling navigation and variables in the app, it would be amazing to arrange them in a container, make the container a mater item, and drop it on each sheet.  I know that creating 6 master items for the buttons achieves this, but this would help with managing real estate on the sheet and help with changing the layout (only set it once rather than change it on EVERY sheet).

Hi,

this is already possible with this extension: https://developer.qlik.com/garden/5a16b9de0476b8847a007e96

But I aggree that grouping items (not only buttons) to create more complex master items would be very nice!

Thanks for your feedback on ways to improve our product. While a layout container would be useful, this is not in our short-term roadmap. Please show your support for this idea by clicking on the "like" button.

Thanks,

Patric

@Oliver_F that is a paid extension, and it also has some defects when using a custom authentication scheme. The free version has a large watermark and is not authorized for production use.

@Patric_Nordstrom  thank you for the feedback on this!

This would be very useful! I wish this already existed.

Hello.
@Patric_Nordstrom One thing that would be amazing would be to have the same police size for the label of every button. As of today, this is a pure nightmare ! More : I can delete the swr navigation button extension from my server and only use the native button.

Best regards,

Simon
