The QlikView OCX Automation Interface
QlikView and QlikView OCX is equipped with an Automation interface (Automation was previously known as OLE Automation). This interface allows an external program or internal macro to access and control the QlikView application / QlikView OCX control.
Description of the general QlikView Automation interface
The general QlikView Automation interface is described in detail in the QlikView API guide (APIguide.qvw), found on the Documentation folder installed from the QlikView OCXSDK Package. This interface may be use in full when working with QlikView OCX. In addition to these Automation members, specific QlikView OCX members are described in part II of this document.
Invocation of QlikView/QlikView OCX Automation
The Automation interface is an integral part of QlikView/QlikView OCX and you do not have to perform any special tasks to activate it. The QlikView/QlikView OCX type library is contained in the QlikView OCX control.
Multiple Automation interface versions
The QlikView OCXtype library and the QlikView type library are registered as separate interfaces in the Windows registry. This means that a version of full QlikView which differs from the installed QlikView OCX can still be used with full Automation functionality.
Only one version of the QlikView OCX Automation interface can be installed on a computer.
