      Hi to all,

      in different threads of the community I've read about the use of Wscript.sleep VBS function.


      I'm actually using QlikView 9.0 SR3 with a Licensed Edition, and when I try to use the function in the macro editor I get the following error:

      Object Wscript required


      Have I to declare something to use this function?
      I read somewhere that Wscript doesn't need to be bound to any object to be used.


      Any suggestion would be appreciated.

      Thanks in advance, regards,

          hi Mario,

          try to use ApiGuide.qvw


          this is taken form there:


          rem ** let QV sleep for 10 seconds **

          ActiveDocument.GetApplication.Sleep 10000

              Hi Stefano,

              thanks for your suggestion.

              Actually I used your ActiveDocument.GetApplication.Sleep 10000 but it has the effect to freeze the whole application for 10 seconds.

              I'd like to try Wscript.shell to see if it has a different behaviour respect to the previous instruction.


              And anyway I'd like to know also why I can't use this function that seems to work easily for other users!

              Thanks again, best regards.
