QV Plus - Repository

Hello everybody!

All your macro functions, script snippets and even current document expressions are now available in QV Plus Repository. No more search in other files for that piece of code you remember using it on that "forgotwhatiscalled" project.

Preview the code just by pointing the mouse and drag-n-drop on the QlikView macro/script/expression editor like in the video below:  

 

Happy Qliking!

QV Plus - Expressions Manager

Hello everybody!

As a QlikView developer, I waited for a long time for an advanced expression overview.

Well, the wait is over! With the QV Plus Expression Manager you can:

- Search and replace without losing focus on selected expressions
- Advanced filtering by global words (applying also to object properties, not just to the expression, eg.: Object Caption)
- Search for errors in expressions
- Bulk change expressions
- Restore function
- Expressions statistics
- Sort expressions by calculation time (optimization)

QV Plus - Variables clean up

Developing in QlikView is fast, but sometimes you need to stop and organize things before you go on. One of the places where things can get crowded is the variables overview. The problem is that we don't have a proper management window to organize the variables... until now.

QV Plus comes to help QlikView developers to clean up the variables. Now you can group, rename, delete, import and export variables. Using the "Find references" option you can safely delete the unused variables.

Watch QV Plus cleaning up variables in the video below.

Exciting, right?

My wishlist for QlikView 12 (NEXT)

In the last years, QlikTech has directed its efforts to a better user experience. That's great but I believe it's time for developers to get some attention. There are a lot of things that need to be further developed, as they are in a very basic stage at this moment.

So, this is my list:

Expression repository in desktop client

As it already exists in AJAX client, it would be nice to have it also in the desktop client.

Scrambling options
