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.
