Purpose and Description
The idea of this solution is to bundle the usage of several media-types into one Visualization Extension to be used within Qlik Sense.
As of now the following media types are currently supported:
- HTML (+CSS)
- Image from Url
- Image from Library
- Web sites
- Download the latest version
- Qlik Sense Desktop
- To install, copy all files in the .zip file to folder "C:\Users%USERNAME%\Documents\Qlik\Sense\Extensions\sense-media-box"
- Qlik Sense Server
- See instructions how to import an extension on Qlik Sense Server
After installing the Visualization Extension and dropping it onto a sheet in Qlik Sense follow these steps:
Define the media type
Depending on the selected media type you'll then see different options in the property panel:
Media type Html
- HTML - Define either inline HTML or reference to a field
='<div style="font-weight:bold;">inline HTML</div>'
Html: LOAD * INLINE [ HTML, HtmlAsset 'This is some <b>bold</b> test', 'Some Html' 'This is another test<br/><br/>with breaks<br/>and<br/>another break', 'Some Html with breaks' '<div style="font-weight:bold;color:red;">Inline style</div>', 'Some Html with inline style' ];
Media type Image
- Image Source (Url) - Define the Url for the image to be embedded.
- Vertical Alignment - Vertical alignment of the image, defaults to "top".
- Horizontal Alignment - Horizontal alignment of the image, defaults to "left".
- Image aspect ratio - Either "keep size" or "best fit", which uses the maximum available width.

Pull requests and stars are always welcome. For bugs and feature requests, please create an issue. The process for contributing is outlined below:
- Create a fork of the project

- Create a pull request (PR)
I cannot guarantee that I will merge all PRs but I will evaluate them all.
Roadmap & Todos
- Video doesn't work in Qlik Sense Desktop but in local browser or Qlik Sense server.
- Some websites do not allow to be included via Iframe (which is used for the media-type website). You'll see a corresponding message in your browser's debug log.
