Vizlib Container Box - Overview (Previously Climber)

All Climber Extensions have been acquired by Vizlib in April 2019 and are now part of our value-added product portfolio for Qlik Sense.

When there is only so much space and you still want a lot of options the Vizlib Container Box extension does the trick. The Container object allows us to include alternative objects in the same space. The user can select what object to see either through a menu or just simple icons. A powerful but simple addition to the Qlik Sense user interface. More advanced users (super users or developers) can use powerful expressions to control what object is shown based on values or selections in the application making the experience both guided and flexible. Check out all of the features in the tutorial!

Note! The extension is created as a generic solution to allow for many different use cases. For instance, the tab labels allow an expression so it is possible to create more dynamic solutions and we allow containers to be placed inside containers. However, we still want the solution to be user-friendly so we have not exposed more technical options like the ability to assign object id with an expression. We have also kept close to the Qlik Sense design and do not allow for specific font-sizes (in pixels) to retain the possibilities for responsive design. Please have these considerations in mind when/if you suggest improvements to the extension.
