QVX  - Create Your Own Data Connector

There can be sources of data which are not available through ODBC  or OLE DB sources and are not readable as flat files. QVX (QlikView  data eXchange) is a file/stream format for data which allows you to  create your own connector for input into QlikView. A QVX formatted file  contains metadata describing a table of data and the actual data.  The  QVX SDK contains two examples (with sample c# code) of extracting data  from the Windows Event log for both QVX file production and streaming  data directly into QlikView.

Shouldn't the reference documentation for qvpp and definition.xml of extension objects be here too?


where can i find the SDK? i couldn't find it in the Qlikview server install. In QV10 i needed to check it before installing. The SDK option is not there anymore

Hi Amien,

The SDK is no longer installed via the MSI, it is now a web reference (this page). This gives us greater flexability to update the reference materials as needed.

Hi Gary!!!

Yes, they do.

Look in the Program Files install directory for QlikView and search for the QVSTicket.htm file.

Hi Sarah,

On the bottom of the email below, there is a link to the next 'ask the

I followed the link, but I don't see where to sign up for it.

You have a sharp eye! So glad you found the footer- I just updated it last night. No registration is required to attend this very cool online event. We are updating the featured content and other areas in the community to promote this event over the next week. When the event goes live you can view a video walkthrough of cool yet relevant vizualizations and join the discussion.

Thank you and we will look forward to your participation.
