Visual FX in QlikView (4): Season’s greetings!

By Barry Harmsen

Christmas time is coming near and I’m in a festive mood, so today I have a short post to wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Of course, it wouldn’t be a QlikFix Christmas if I hadn’t whipped up a little visual effect in QlikView. Without further ado, here is my QlikView Christmas card to you:

But wait, there’s more! Inspired by the Christmas theme over at Matt Fryer’s QlikView Addict blog (a recommended read, by the way), I decided to create a small document extension that lets you add a little Christmas spirit to your own QlikView documents. Amaze (or annoy) your clients, co-workers and users! For example, how about adding a little snow to the golf course?

Of course, the extension works best when your QlikView application has a dark background. You can download the entire pack containing the Christmas card, “Let It Snow” Document Extension and a sample document by clicking on the link below.

And with that, I wish you all a Merry Christmas and all the best for 2013. With all the upcoming changes in QlikView.Next, it’s bound to become an exciting year!

All the best,

Barry Harmsen

PS. Just in case you are still working on your wish list for Christmas, or are looking for the perfect Christmas gift for the (aspiring) QlikView developer in your life; here’s a book that anyone interested in QlikView will be thrilled to find under their Christmas tree 😉
