QlikView or Qlik Sense starts Connector process and passes two command-line arguments: parent window handle and command pipe name.
A connector process is launched:
- During script reload when a connect statement to the Connector is found. The process is terminated when another connect statement is found or script reload is completed.
- On open Edit Script dialog box. QlikView or Qlik Sense checks if the Connector has Custom Caption button and if so, then gets the caption. The process is terminated immediately afterwards.
- When the Connector is selected in the Databases list box in Edit Script dialog box. The Connector process is used for handling operations related to Connect, Select and Custom dialogs. The process is terminated on Edit Script dialog box exit or when another data source is selected.
