Getting started with the QVX SDK

This guide describes the code you need to write in order to create your own, custom QVX connector that can run from within QlikView or Qlik Sense.

The following steps are required to create a custom QVX connector:

  1. Creating a new solution in Microsoft Visual Studio.
  2. Adding QvxLibrary to your solution
  3. Implementing mandatory classes (Program.cs, QvEventLogConnection.cs, and QvEventLogServer.cs).
  4. Building your solution.
  5. Making your connector recognizable by QlikView or Qlik Sense.
  6. Installing your connector
The QVX SDK is obtained from community.qlik.com/docs/DOC-2639. Log on with a registered customer or partner account and see QVX - Create Your Own Data Connector at the bottom of the page.

Example solutions, based on the Windows Log files, can be found in folders where the zip file was extracted:

  • QvxSDK_2.1\Examples\EventLogSimple\EventLogSimple.sln
  • QvxSDK_2.1\Examples\EventLogElaborate\EventLogElaborate.sln

Complete documentation of the QvxLibrary.DLL API is provided in QvxSDK_2.1\QVXLibrary.chm. If the QVX SDK zip file has been extracted to another folder, substitute that folder name for QvxSDK_2.1.
