Improvements to WebPageViewer2 QlikView Extension

In the last months I have received quite often the request to add a new feature to my WebPageViewer2 extension (you could even say it’s a bugfix): The extension did reload the web page on every QlikView refresh event (e.g. making any selections), even if the Url of the web page did not change.

Improvement to WebPageViewer2 (v1.0.2)

There is now a new property called “Prevent reloading if Url does not change” which exactly does what many of you requested: Prevent reloading the Url if it does not change …

    Hi Stefan,

    I’m getting some problems with webpageviewer 2 latest version.

    I downloaded the full install folder… Have 3 qar.

    The WebPageViewer2_v1.0.1 and WebPageViewer2_v1.0.2 works good, but they no have the feature “prevent URL change”.

    In last version i cann’t use the Simple Object Integration because always return blank. i Tried the same link in web browser and works good.

    If i dont change the url, loads right in iframe.

    You can help me please?

    Hello Stefan,

    Thank you for creating and publishing this updated this useful extension.

    I wanted to report what appears to me to be a bug. I am using WebPageViewer2_v1.0.3.qar on my desktop QlikView client (11.2 SR4) and on a QlikView Server 11.2 (SR5). In both cases when I select the option “Prevent Interaction” it is disabling all loading of the web page. In other words, at the moment I check this box, the object frame goes blank, the web page disappears. When I load this to a web server all I see is a blank frame. My only issue is with this option, everything else works fine.

    Best Regards, Chrisitan

    Stefan, I’m trying to use this extension for an SSRS report but I’m getting an error saying content cannot be displayed in a frame. The URL I’m using looks like this:

      This can happen; if the owner of the website is defining that the website cannot be displayed within an iframe, then you’ll get this message. This e.g. also happens if you are trying to display Google’s startpage in an iframe …
