List builder

The List builder is used for building lists that are not a part of the Qlik Sense app your mashup is connected to.

You access the List builder by clicking Options > Lists > Add list.

Frequency mode

Defines the frequency mode, and is used to calculate the frequency of a value in a list object.

  • No frequency: no frequency is calculated.
  • Absolute value: the absolute value.
  • Percent: the percentage (between 0 and 100).
  • Relative: same as percent but between 0 and 1.

Refers to the qFrequencyMode property in qListObjectDef.


Determines the maximum number of rows received back from the Qlik associative engine.

Refers to the qHeight of qInitialDataFetch property in qListObjectDef.

Callback Name of your callback.

Code rendering in Mashup editor

When you have saved your list you can go to the *.js tab and check the code rendered by the Mashup editor. The rendered code is placed at the bottom of the JavaScript file:

	//create cubes and lists -- inserted here --

Example: Code rendering of added list

In this example, we use the helpdesk mashup example. We add a new hypercube, select the Status field, and name the callback StatusList. The following lines of code are generated by the Mashup editor, and can be viewed on the *.js tab:
	//create cubes and lists -- inserted here --
		"qFrequencyMode": "V",
		"qDef": {
				"qFieldDefs": [
		"qExpressions": [],
		"qInitialDataFetch": [
						"qHeight": 20,
						"qWidth": 1
		"qLibraryId": null
The Mashup editor also generates the placeholder for your callback:
	//callbacks -- inserted here --
	function StatusList(reply, app){}
