Vizlib Selection Bar - Introduction

Vizlib Selection Bar icon - two blue rows with white shapes to indicate fields to select from.

Vizlib Selection Bar is the Swiss army knife of extensions, helping you make selections quickly and always displaying the result! 

This horizontal selection bar has pre-selected values that allow fields, variables, and flags to be displayed. It is used in almost all our Qlik Sense applications and is the perfect way to create a nice toolbar.

Vizlib Selection Bar enables: 

  • preset selections linking to other Qlik Sense documents using document chaining
  • setting variables and selecting dates. 

Note: all Climber Extensions were acquired by Vizlib in April 2019 and are part of our value-added product portfolio for Qlik Sense.
