Document Properties: General

 

Title Here the title that is to be displayed in the window caption can be entered. As default the document file name is used. To alter it, enter the selection in the Title edit box.
Author In the Author edit box specify the author of the QlikView file.
Save Format

In this group set the level of compression for the QlikView files.
Compression
The options Medium and High substantially decrease the size of the QlikView file while sacrificing some load and save speed. Compression options set under Document Properties affect the current document. Compression options set under User Preferences affect all new documents.

See: User Preferences: Save

Alert Pop-ups This button opens the Pop-up Window Settings dialog where the default look of alert pop-up messages can be determined.
Help Pop-ups This button opens the Pop-up Window Settings dialog where the default look of help pop-up messages can be determined.
Alternate States...

Alternate States functionality is enabled by a QlikView developer. The developer invokes the Alternate States dialog by clicking this button.

See: Alternate States.

Note: Do not enable this functionality unless it is really needed in the QlikView Document.
Memory Statistics Click this button to save a table file containing memory usage statistics for the current QlikView document. This file can be read e.g. by QlikView for an analysis of memory requirements for different parts of the document.
Default Sheet Background The Background Color for the Default Sheet Background of the document window(s) can be customized by checking this alternative. A color can be defined as a solid color or a gradient via the Color Area dialog that opens when clicking the button. Alternatively, it is possible to specify a background image by checking Wallpaper Image and clicking the Change button. This will open the Change Wallpaper dialog where a picture file can be selected. The background image can be altered with the following options.

Image Formatting:
No Stretch:
The image is displayed as is, which may cause masking problems.
Fill:
The image is stretched in order to fill the sheet, without regard to aspect ratio.
Keep Aspect:
The image is stretched as far as possible while retaining the correct aspect ratio.
Fill with Aspect:
The image is stretched as far as possible while retaining the correct aspect ratio. Areas not covered are then filled by cropping of the image.
Tile:
If this option is selected, the image will be tiled the as many times as space allows.

Horizontal and Vertical orientation:
Horizontal:
The image can be horizontally aligned: Left, Centered or Right.
Vertical:
The image can be vertically aligned: Top, Centered or Bottom.
Use Passive FTP Semantics

If the Use Passive FTP Semantics option is checked, the passive Ftp semantics will be enabled. The passive semantics option is used for communicating with a server through a firewall.

Generate Logfile To track the execution of the load script select Generate Logfile. The information that is shown in the Progress window during script execution will be stored as qv.log.
Timestamp in Logfile Name Puts a timestamp in the logfile name, e.g. sales.qvw.2009_02_26_12_09_50.log. The setting is only available if the Generate Logfile check-box is marked.
Hide Unavailable Menu Options The setting Hide Unavailable Menu Options is used in conjunction with the security settings. Any menu options that should normally be grayed out, will instead be completely hidden from the user.
Hide Tabrow The QlikView sheet tabrow may be removed by checking Hide Tabrow. In order to move between sheets use the Next Sheet / Previous Sheet actions or the Sheet Toolbar of the View menu. It is also possible to use automation control, which will e.g. make it possible to force the user to move between sheets and even making selections in a specific order.
Keep Unreferenced QVD Buffers The Keep Unreferenced QVD Buffers setting overrules the normal procedure whereby any automatically created QVD files are purged immediately after script execution, provided they are no longer used by the document that created them. This setting should normally be left unchecked.
Legacy Fractile Calculation If the Legacy Fractile Calculation check box is enabled, QlikView will use discrete values as results from the fractile aggregation function. Deselect the check box and QlikView will use an interpolated value, as known from the Percentile function in Microsoft Excel.
Disable Layout Undo When the check box Disable Layout Undo is marked the layout undo buffer will be suspended. This may be useful to prevent unnecessary memory consumption when deploying certain QlikView documents. Each time a user or a macro changes the layout a chunk of data is normally added to the layout undo buffer. In extreme cases, the accumulated buffer data may cause problems when deploying documents on a QlikView Server.
Use WebView in Layout Toggles WebView mode, which uses the internal web browser in QlikView to display the document layout as an AJAX page, on and off.
Default Export Encoding Use Default Export Encoding to set the default character set for export in new documents. Choose one of these option: ANSI, Unicode or UTF-8.
Styling Mode In the drop-down menu Styling Mode choose the object style for all the sheet objects.

The Advanced mode makes it possible to configure several settings, such as the Sheet Object Style and the type of border to be used, set on the Layout page of the objects.

The Simplified mode also gives the choice of Sheet Object Style, but configures most settings automatically. It sets such things as Scrollbar Style and borders. Some settings can still be changed on the layout page of the objects.
Sheet Object Style In the drop-down Sheet Object Style select a style for sheet object captions. The style selected will be used for all sheet objects with a caption in the document.
Tabrow Style Under Tabrow Style select one of the available styles for the tab row appearance in this drop-down. The style selected will be used for all tabs in the document.
Selection Appearance

QlikView supports several different ways of presenting data and making selections in list boxes and multi boxes. The QlikView Classic, Corner Tag, LED and Led Checkboxes styles all use color coding for indication of selected, possible and excluded values. The Windows Checkboxes style and the LED Checkboxes style mimic the standard Windows interface with a check box at each value. By choosing a specific style in this control, it is possible to force the document to appear in one style or another wherever opened. When using the selection styles based on color, there are a number of different color schemes available. The basic color scheme (green for selected, blue for locked etc.) cannot be changed, but variations of tone and intensity are possible.

See: User Preferences: General and List Box
