Some strange behavior happened to us using ajax interface as well. In our case it was some textboxes that where automatically minimized. We weren't able to work around that forcing the object to be restored and unchecking "Allow minimize" in the Title tab. We didn't have this problem with the very exact document opened with IE Plugin.
Just in addition, I use a macro on open document:
on error resume next
for j = 0 to ActiveDocument.NoOfSheets - 1
Objects = ActiveDocument.Sheets(j).GetSheetObjects
for i = lBound(Objects) To uBound(Objects)
set obj = Objects(i)
'For each object that I named with _SO_, I restore the object searhc
if InStr(obj.GetObjectId,"_SO_") then
We are also getting this issue when brining up the 'current selections' box. Sometimes it is there and other times it is not.
When you go into layout and change the layer, even by 1 and then back again, it reappears.
Very frustrating issue that we have not found a satisfactory solution to yet.
Julian, if I remember right there is a bug in QV 8.5 relating to Current Selections boxes. I know I had problems with them disappearing, and with them not updating to show the selections that I'd made. I think the trick was to make sure the Current Selections box was the last thing you added to the page. Try that and see if it resolves your issue.
This was fixed in version 9.
jacob - i have similar issues with certain list boxes prior to SR5. in my case it is a 'layering' issue, combined with a show-hide condition. when you open in the developer copy, if you change the layer of the search object (even if it is already 'top'), then does it reappear? do you also utilize the show/hide condition on this object? i was chasing list boxes around for weeks, until support confirmed it was a bug.
I've seen the same thing. I don't think it's anything to do with the document itself but more with the way the server is handling the data in memory. I haven't been able to consistently reproduce it, but restarting the Qlikview Server invariable resolves the problem for me.
Hopefully upgrading to SR5 will make this go away.
