Building applications with the .NET SDK

The Qlik Sense .NET SDK is a development toolbox for use with applications such as Microsoft® Visual Studio®. It contains components for embedding Qlik Sense into host application programs developed by software manufacturers on an OEM basis.

The Qlik Sense .NET SDK does not automatically provide any of the GUI. You can use a browser control to reuse the web based Qlik Sense GUI in a .NET app or you can build a new Windows GUI using Windows chart controls or frameworks like Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF).

The Qlik Sense .NET SDK can be used for building a Qlik Sense app from scratch or for visualizing an existing app in a custom client by embedding Qlik Sense objects. It can also be used for administering or modifying Qlik Sense apps in many different ways or for using Qlik Sense as a computing device.

The host application, in which the Qlik Sense .NET SDK library is embedded, can be written in, for example, Visual Basic or Visual C#.

This guide is not a guide for Visual Basic or Visual C#. The reader is assumed to possess a basic knowledge of Visual Basic or Visual C# programming.

The Qlik Sense .NET SDK is obtained from www.qlik.com. Log on with a registered customer or partner account, select Support > Downloads and then select the Sense tab.
