Using Qlik Sense third-party extensions

You can use Qlik Sense third-party extensions inside Qlik NPrinting reports as images, tables, and levels.

Requirements

All objects that have been added to a sheet can be used as images. Qlik NPrinting does not distinguish between native visualizations and extensions. However, for a third-party extension to render correctly, the JavaScript implementation of the extension needs to fulfill certain requirements. In particular, the extension must implement the "finished rendering" notification.

A third-party extension can be used as a table if:

  • The object contains exactly one hypercube.
  • The hypercube is either straight or stacked.

A third-party extension can be used as a level if:

  • The properties of the object contain exactly one hypercube.
  • The hypercube is either straight or stacked.
  • The hypercube has at least one dimension.
  • The hypercube contains no calculated or grouped dimensions.

Qlik NPrinting does not support the exporting or printing of visualization extensions that use:

  • External resources.
  • External and undocumented JavaScript modules or APIs.

Setting up a "finished rendering" notification

To export your third-party extension as an image, you must use the paint method to inform Qlik NPrinting that the extension has finished rendering. Otherwise, you could have blank or partially rendered images.

// ..., paint : function() { return qlik.Promise.resolve(); } // ...
