The container object can contain all other sheet objects. The objects are grouped together and have common settings for font, layout and caption.
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.
Copies the selected sheet object(s) to the clipboard. This function only copies sheet objects, not data or images.
Iconizes the object. Clicking on the icon in the object caption (if shown) produces the same result. This command is available only if minimizing is allowed in the object's Properties dialog on the Caption page.
Restores a minimized or maximized object to its previous size and location. Double-clicking the icon of a minimized object or clicking the icon in the object caption (if shown) of a maximized object produces the same result. This command is available only for minimized or maximized objects.
Enlarges the object to fill the sheet. Clicking on the icon in the object caption (if shown) produces the same result. This command is available only if maximizing is allowed in the object's Properties dialog on the Caption page.
Removes the selected object from the sheet.
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.

When this option has been checked a minimize icon will be displayed in the window caption of the sheet object, providing that it is possible to minimize the object. Furthermore, this will make it possible to minimize the object by double-clicking the caption.
This option becomes available when Allow Minimize is checked. When Auto Minimize is checked for several sheet objects on the same sheet, all but one will be automatically minimized at any time. This is useful e.g. for alternately displaying several graphs in the same sheet area.
When this option has been checked a maximize icon will be displayed in the window caption of the sheet object, providing that it is possible to maximize the object. Furthermore, this will make it possible to maximizing the object by double-clicking the caption. If both Allow Minimize and Allow Maximize are checked, double-clicking will effect minimizing of the object.
