When you're working with Vizlib Tiles it's important to be clear about what you can and can't do. We've collected together a list of tips for best practice, and listed them in this article for you, along with any answers to any other questions you might need.
TABLE OF CONTENTS
- Let's introduce you - If you're new to Vizlib Tiles, or looking to find some information, the Introduction page has links to the product resources and knowledge base articles.
- Work with the wizard - Always use the Setup Wizard to start building a chart, you can add expressions or edit data in the property panel once you have the basic version.
- Position - If a sheet is being re-sized, choosing a Dynamic position setting (rather than Static) can help with readability as it means the tile objects change size and position in proportion to the sheet.
- Performance - Vizlib Tiles uses the Qlik Sense hub engine, and each individual value will be processed separately. If you're working with very large amounts of data in your chart, this will affect the Qlik Sense engine processing time and performance may become slower. Also, If you are using expressions with the calculation gauge and set the gauge to red, this can impact on performance as the expression will be evaluated for each individual tile, rather than the entire extension (green). You can find more information in our article on Best Practice and Performance Optimization in Qlik Sense.
