A Comprehensive List of QlikView Object Extensions (01/2013)

In the last few weeks I have dedicated quite a lot of time to extension development in QlikView. Doing so I have certainly reviewed existing extensions to get new ideas and study existing code. Unfortunately there is no central repository available where you can find all extensions.

So I thought it would be helpful to share my collection of existing extensions.

QlikView Object Extensions

I have only added extensions which work in QlikView 11. If I have forgotten some, please let me know and I’ll add them.
Document extensions and GeoAnalytics-extensions will be covered in another upcoming article.

    did you found some extensions to replace qlikview inputfiled or to build a forecast process?

    • Posted January 12, 2013 at 18:32 | Permalink

      Yes, I’ll post a seperate post on planning solutions within the next days … I have not added these solutions to this post because these solutions are normally more than just an extension, these are solutions based on extension technology, so very similar to GeoAnalytics extensions …

        Your site is impressive – you are into some interesting areas. Did you ever get into posting the planning / input field / forecasting solutions? I am very interested in this direction.

    Thanks for this detailled overview on the existing extensions.
    It really shows very impressively how powerful the QV Object Extension interface is and hopefully encourages people to start developing more of those. Or maybe they report to you what they already baked (but never published), so we get an ever growing list.

    Nice to see all of these collated in one place. Some I’ve not come across myself, it shows how modular the Extension technology is.

    Hi Stefan

    There are several new geospatial extensions that have been uploaded to community. There is the google maps with pins, the one displaying clusters of points, the SVG map, etc. It would be great if you could add those in too.

    Hey I have made another Gantt chart extension for Qlikview, can you add it to the list???

    Posted October 30, 2013 at 21:19 | Permalink

    I am trying to create a session timer within Qlikview. If a user has a window open, I want the window to automatically close within 15 minutes if there’s no activity on the user’s part. Activities include moving the mouse around the Qlikview document or a key press on one of the objects in the document.

    In my first attempt at doing this, I went with Object Extension because Events can be captured in Object Extensions.. I am trying to figure out how to add an event listener to the document. I thought it would be as easy as adding the line ‘myDoc.addEventListener(‘mousemove’, resetClock, false);’

    Any suggestion?

    • Posted October 30, 2013 at 22:54 | Permalink

      try something like this..

      var interval = 1;
         if(interval == 5){
             /* if intervall reaches 5 the user is inactive hide element/s */
             interval = 1;
         interval = interval+1;
      $(document).bind('mousemove keypress', function() {
          /* on mousemove or keypressed show the hidden input (user active) */
          interval = 1;

      You will need to use the Jquery Library for this particular method.

    I’m trying to get the Org Chart extension to work. I have a 4 level hierarchy. What is the definition for the Hierarchy field in dimension 1, which seems what we’re missing to in order to get it to work?

    I am trying to add sunburst sequence as an extension into Qlikview. I have the source code from Github :

    I am just a little confused as to how to handle the index.html part of the code when using as an extension. I believe I cant simply reference the index file, can I? I want to use the java script as it is in the source code or with minimal changes, but the code references all the elements created in the index.html file but i cant seem to figure out how to define the definition.xml file for this chart. Has anyone worked on this chart?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated :)
