Document Chaining as sheet trigger not possible - Open QlikView Document trigger not in properties
Article Number: 000013409 | Last Modified: 2016/01/22
Document chaining via the Open QlikView Document action on sheets is not possible as the option on the triggers tab within the External category in sheet properties has been removed since QlikView 11.20.12852.0 SR11.
However Button Object or Text Object based triggers are not affected.
Document chaining on sheet triggers is not supported anymore since SR11. The behavior is working as designed and described in BUG ID QVII-111
The help file only states "Not available as document and sheet trigger"
A trigger that is opening a new Qlik View document when a particular tab is activated can be simulated with button or text objects
Following workaround can be established:
1. Create a Text Object or Button object
2. Link objects/ button with sheets via the action "Activate Sheet"
(Object Properties -> Actions -> Add Action -> Layout -> Activate Sheet)
3. Optional: Highlight selected Sheets with Colors
(Object Properties -> General -> Colors and -> Font -> Colors)
4. Link Text object / button object with another QlikView document via the action "Open QlikView Document"
(Object Properties -> Actions -> Add Action -> External -> Open QlikView Document)
Note: The exact path to the qvw. file needs to be defined!
5. Hide QlikView Sheets
(Document properties -> General -> Hide Tabrow)
