After defining the look and styles of an object, it is a good idea to set up a theme for a consistent look.
QlikView developers will often re-use a QlikView application for subsequent projects, deleting the objects they do not want, and modifying or copying the objects they want to include in the new application. This approach is perfectly valid, but the use of QlikView themes is useful in enforcing formatting properties and corporate styles in applications and saves time in application development.
QlikView themes can be created and edited for the document, sheet, or objects. The theme itself is stored in an XML file (with a . Qvt extension), such as a windows application data (App Data) folder for the active user, as shown in the following path (windows7). Note that the App Data folder may be a hidden folder and may need to be revealed in windows explorer, in organize/folders and search options/view/files and folders/show hidden files…

A theme is used to store or apply layout properties for the document, sheet, and objects. Each of these comprises a section in the template file. For each of these sections in the file, there are subsections that describe object properties for specific object types, a subsection on the border and caption properties, and a subsection on printer settings (where applicable).
The theme file is generated by the theme maker wizard, which is accessible by clicking on the theme maker, button in document properties/layout, sheet properties/general, and chart properties/layout. The theme maker wizard allows you to create a new theme or modify an existing theme.
Hence QlikView is very much effective in visualizing vast and complex data without any interference from outside sources. Even though there are certain limitations, it does not hinder the visualization process.

The beauty of QlikView themes is that they can be performed in advance with no access to client data or site. These themes can be edited in the document, sheet, or size and are stored in an XML file. Perform the following steps to create a new theme:

QlikView themes are useful in formatting properties and corporate styles in applications, hence saving time.
You can set up templates to be the default theme, or you can apply themes manually. Themes can be applied to objects, sheets, or the document, by accessing the appropriate apply theme button from the object, sheet, or document properties dialog box. you can also apply the theme to multiple objects by using the lasso tool by clicking and dragging around objects. To apply a theme, follow these steps:
1. If you want to apply a theme to a sheet or object, click on the sheet or object (or use the lasso tool) and then access the properties dialog box for that object. If the template must be applied to the whole document, access the document properties dialog box.
2. Click on the apply theme button. In the document and object properties dialog, the apply theme button is in the layout tab. In the sheet properties dialog, the apply theme button is in the general tab.
3. Select a theme from the stored themes and click on open. The theme is applied to the active selection (object, sheet, or document).
A container is a tool that holds several controls within it. The container collects and displays QlikView objects. The container object is a useful sheet object that allows developers to add multiple sheet objects of any kind. The container is a way to save screen space by dedicating just one area that can show multiple charts or tables in the same space. The charts and objects are available for selections in the opened container by clicking on the buttons that are placed in the container automatically when you add a chart/ object to the container. A container object saves space as multiple objects can use the same space by setting ‘Container type’.
The container object is more flexible because you can use different dimensions and expressions within it.
