Formatting Pane

Greetings,
Have groups been added to the powerbi-visuals-utils-formattingmodel module.
If not, how do I populate the formatting settings using the getFormattingModule() method from powerbi-visuals-utils-formattingutils.

It is not clear in the working example provided in the tutorial for formatting pane.
What can I do instead of this:

this.formattingSettings = this.formattingSettingsService.populateFormattingSettingsModel(VisualFormattingSettingsModel, options.dataViews);
 

Thank You!

Hi @wolfgang2,

 

There aren't any examples for the formatting model utils, because groups are not currently part of that libray's API. If you want full parity with the exposed formatting pane API, you will currently need to build the formatting model using getFormattingModel in the base Power BI Visuals API rather than using the additional utilities.

 

There is currently a pull request open for the functionality to be added to the formattingmodel package and I would suggest that you add your voice there to see if the additional interest can help move it along.

 

Regards,

 

Daniel

Thanks for the reply. I get what you are saying. I just can't find a way to populate the settings in the update() method using dataviews like you can in formatting model utils and even the older enumerateObjectInstances() method. What do I change the following to, if I am using getFormattingModel():
this.formattingSettings = this.formattingSettingsService.populateFormattingSettingsModel(VisualFormattingSettingsModel, options.dataViews);
