General properties of the QlikView OCX control

The QlikView OCX controls show the sheet area of QlikView, i.e. the sheet and tab row of a QlikView document.

Menu bars, tool bars and the status bar are not provided by the QlikView OCX control. These must, if desired be programmed in the host application.

All UI functionality normally found within the QlikView sheet area is available as normal in the OCX control. This includes context menus, although the OCX interface contains possibilities to disable, modify and replace them. Starting in version 8.20, help can also be disabled and modified.

Basically all QlikView functionality can be controlled programmatically by the host application by means of the general QlikView Automation interface and the specific OCX Automation interface described in this document.
