    Engine API: CreateChild not visible in app

    Gregory Longé

      All,

       

      I am trying to use the Engine API to add a new bar chart to a certain sheet using the CreateChild method. According to the return message, the new object is successfully created and is enlisted in the object list of the sheet when calling ChildInfos on the sheet. The problem is however that the object is not showing up in the actual Qlik Sense app.

       

      So my question is: how can I make the new bar chart, which is a part of the sheet, appear in the Qlik Sense app? Is there any visibility setting I should set? And how can I specify where it should be shown on the sheet and with which physical dimensions?

       

      Inside an extension or in a website integration, this is all rather straightforward as you can include the object directly in the html definitions.

       

      Thanks in advance,

       

      Gregory
