Creating a visualization using a custom object


Creating a visualization using a custom object

You can enhance your apps with custom-objects.

Custom objects that are available are:

  • visualization extensions

    Information noteExtensions that contain resource requests to external resources must have its origins whitelisted in the Content Security Policy, else the extension will be blocked from rendering.
  • object bundles supplied by Qlik:

You can find custom objects in the assets panel under Extension Custom objects when you are editing a sheet.

Adding a custom object to the sheet

You start creating a visualization by dragging a visualization extension or a widget onto a sheet.

Do the following:

  1. Click Edit in the toolbar.

  2. Click Extension in the panel on the left-hand side to expand custom objects.
  3. Drag a visualization extension or a widget onto the sheet.

    You can drop it in an empty location on the sheet, split the area of an existing visualization into two, or replace an existing visualization.

    Tip noteIf you double-click a custom object, it is added to the sheet immediately.
  4. Change the required settings for the custom object in the properties panel. The required settings are defined by the extension developer, this can be dimensions, measures, or other settings.

You now have a complete visualization that you can start using while exploring the data in the app.
