Visual FX in QlikView (5): Merry Xmas 2014!

By Barry Harmsen

Christmas time is near again, so it’s time for another visual effect in QlikView: the QlikFix 2014 Christmas Card. Using the trusty animated scatter plot once more, I’ve built a little spinning Christmas tree (and, in the spirit of Christmas, added some awful music 😉 ). Check the video below:

The complete QVW can be downloaded below:

Wishing you all happy holidays and all the best for 2015!

      Thanks Steve. Building these little animated apps is a lot of fun. It might look somewhat pointless, but I’ve already picked up quite a few new ideas for use in client applications. (and for use in next year’s Christmas card 🙂
