Selection models

You can use two different selection models when creating visualizations using the APIs:

  • Standard Qlik Sense selection model with toolbar and wrapper around the object supported by methods in the Extension API.
  • Quick selection, where selections are sent straight to the Qlik associative engine and are immediately reflected in the object supported by methods in the Backend API.
Information noteWhen creating visualization extensions, you have the option to disable selections.

In both selection methods you make selections by clicking and drawing in visualizations. When using the standard Qlik Sense selection model, selections are confirmed by clicking Check mark.. But if you use the Quick selection model, selections are sent straight to Qlik associative engine with no confirmation necessary.
