Things I like about QlikView 10 - Part 3: Extension Objects

This is possibly the coolest thing in QlikView.

We were working with a client a while ago who had a very specific requirement for a visualisation. We worked several options with different show/hide options around bar charts and pivot tables but, while they were close to what was required (close enough anyway), they didn't quite hit the mark.

Now I know that i can build exactly what they want with an extension object. I know that I can do this because I know HTML and JavaScript - I know what I can do with it. I don't even need to go to flash/silverlight, I can work wonders in notepad.

Have you had a go yet?
