Show sidebar action

It supports HTML as well as embedding master visualizations by using the following syntax:

$object_id{css styles}

object_id - identifier of the master visualization object.

css styles - the CSS styles to apply to the embedded object.

Chart Level Scripting support

It is a Qlik Sense feature available in Qlik Cloud and in Qlik Sense Client Managed version starting from August 2022.

Quote from Qlik documentation:

With chart level scripting, you can add script-like functionality to the results of a visualization. It complements chart expressions, as chart level scripting include control statements, such as loops and recursive actions, for more complex mathematical calculations. You can also modify multiple columns, as long as a placeholder exists in the chart, and add new rows to a result.

Chart level scripting must be enabled in the app before you can add a chart script to a visualization.
