Power BI: Conditional formatting the Pie Visual

Objective: 

Conditional formatting on Pie Visual 

 

Steps:

If we open pie data color, there is no option for conditional formatting.

But we have one for Bar Visual

Let us do some scale based coloring on Bar Visual

We can see Bar is having conditional formatting

Now change it to pie. It takes the color for each brand

But, what I want is a fixed color for each brand. So I created a color measure 

Switch( true(),
max('Item'[brand]) = "Brand 1" , "red",
max('Item'[brand]) = "Brand 2" , "blue",
max('Item'[brand]) = "Brand 3" , "green",
max('Item'[brand]) = "Brand 4" , "gray",
max('Item'[brand]) = "Brand 5" , "yellow",
max('Item'[brand]) = "Brand 6" , "orange",
max('Item'[brand]) = "Brand 7" , "brown",
max('Item'[brand]) = "Brand 8" , "Cyan",
max('Item'[brand]) = "Brand 9" , "Tan",
max('Item'[brand]) = "Brand 10" , "Violet",
max('Item'[brand]) = "Brand 11" , "Gold",
"silver"
)

 

Now I can create a bar or table visual and use that using the "Field Value" Option, and choose this measure.

The same step, change the visual to pie now

Hey Amit this is great idea

This is not working anymore with the new version :S 

hi @amitchandak,

 

This is an amazing tip!

I was having problems when using top N filter in a Donut chart because it was changing colors as I made selections in different slicers. So I used your tip together with RANKX function and it worked like a charm 🙂

Thank you!
