Vizlib Switch Best Practice and Troubleshooting

When you're working with Vizlib Switch it's important to be clear about what you can and can't do. We've collected together some tips on best practice and known issues and limitations and listed them here for you.


Best Practice

  • Let's introduce you - If you're new to Vizlib Switch, or looking to find some information, the Introduction page has links to the product resources and knowledge base articles.
  • Setup -When you add a Vizlib Switch object to a sheet, you'll see a dropdown Choose Variable and a Create Variable field appear. When you choose or create the variable, you'll display a switch object, and the Switch Items menu will open in the property panel, letting you start applying changes straight away. 
  • Use templates - Templates in Vizlib  help you apply a look and feel instantly, saving you time and effort. You can even design your own and save them.
  • Performance - Vizlib Switch 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. You can find more information in our article on Best Practice and Performance Optimization in Qlik Sense.
