QlikView Easter Egg

At least, I hope it´s a sense of humor, and not a new feature for QlikView.Next :)

into a text object and choosing the Image representation shows our old *ahem* friend Clippy. Or should I say Qlikky?

Besides Clippy, there are actually a lot more images embedded in QlikView than just those listed under <bundled>/BuiltIn.

In the application that you can download below, you will find an overview of all hidden embedded images.
