Qlik sense Extensions- Take screenshot


Qliksense extensions are the most powerful component of qlik ecosystem. If you have been a qliksense user developing dashboard, you might also be using lot of extensions. This extension will help you to take screenshot of qliksense extensions and also other native chart components. However, this does not work on Safari and IE as it uses dom-to-image javascript library which does not work well with safari and IE.

Though Qlik recently introduced enabling screenshots for extensions, you cannot apply the same in mashups. The second part of this extension: Screenshots in Mashups explains how you can use this extension in mashups as well.

The following video shows how a sheet containing amChart Extension can be downloaded along with other charts. These images can also be exported into presentation using any of the javascript libraries available. Please inbox me at codeatroost@gmail.com for details or leave a comment.

  1. Hey,
    thanks for developing this component. We are trying to use it, but it is taking a screenshot of what we can see. Our sheet has scroll bars, so it is not taking a screenshot of the entire html page.

    Are we missing anything?
