Buttons can be used in QlikView to perform commands or actions, e.g. export data to files, launch other applications or execute macros.

By right-clicking the object, the Object Menu will be displayed.

Button: Object Menu

The object menu can be opened as a context menu by right-clicking on a sheet object, or by clicking the icon in the object caption (if shown).

The commands in the menu may vary depending on whether WebView is used from inside QlikView or opening the document in a web browser. The menu contains the following commands:


Opens the Properties dialog for the active sheet object.


Allows creating and sharing notes about the current object.

See: Notes and Comments


Copies the selected sheet object(s) to the clipboard. This function only copies sheet objects, not data or images.


Removes the selected object from the sheet.

Button Properties

The Properties dialog is opened by selecting Properties from the Object menu. If the Properties command is dimmed, you probably do not have the privileges necessary to perform property changes.
