    Tips & Tricks - Copy / Paste objects from the Container

    Fernando Toledo

      Hi everybody!

       

      This week I found myself playing with the new object: The Container.

       

      First I found that you can drag objets and drop them inside the container. Smart, easy and intuitive.

       

      But I got a little dificult trying to copy / paste a container from a document to another. QV makes a real mess in this case! It pastes the container but leaves the charts and other objects behind, and as a bonus, brings garbage inside it (charts displaying as unavailable in the containers properties window).

       

      Copy & Paste the inner objects directly from the container doesn´t work either. But I found a way to deal with it. You can clone objects from a container just right clicking on them, then hit "Clone". It will create a copy of the chart outside the container and with a new ID.

       

      What you do is to clone every chart from the container, them copy them to the new QVW and then put the charts inside a new container in the destination QVW.

       

      A little tricky, but does the job.

       

      I think that QlikTech will soon make this new object class easier to handle!

       

      Hope it helps!

       

      Best regards
