## Check if slicer is selected while same dimension is used in chart

Hello,

My problem is pretty simple. I have a date Slicer (Year, Month & Day) and a Chart showing sales with Date as an axis.

I would like to show only rolling 12 months data on my sales measure when the slicer contains no selection.

The expected result is the following

And when no date is selected, show sales only for 02-2022 to 02-2023

Is it possible to performs this without having to add an independent date slicer ?

Thanks for your help

For an entirely measure approach try something like this:

(Filter measure)

Measure 44 =
IF(ISFILTERED('Calendar'[Year]),
1,

IF(
MAX('Calendar'[Date]) in DATESBETWEEN('Calendar'[Date], TODAY()-365, TODAY()),1,0)

)

Base measure:
Measure 45 = SUM('Table (28)'[Value])

Place filter measure into filter pane like this:

With filter:

You might need to play around with the dimensions to get the visual you want, but filter measure would be the most logical approach if you don't want new slicers or tables

Hi,

Here is one way to do this:

Data:

Dax:

Measure 43 =
IF(ISFILTERED('Calendar'[Year]),

CALCULATE(SUM('Table (28)'[value]),USERELATIONSHIP('Visual Calendar'[Date],'Table (28)'[example:])),

CALCULATE (
SUM('Table (28)'[value]),
DATESBETWEEN ('Calendar'[Date],TODAY()-365, TODAY()),USERELATIONSHIP('Visual Calendar'[Date],'Table (28)'[example:])
)

)

Here I am cheking if the Year is filtered and if this is the case we are using a simple SUM dax. Otherwise, we will calculate 12m rolling values based on today. The visual uses a duplicate of calendar table "visual calendar" and the USERELATIONSHIP in dax activates the calculation so that it will gets assigned to correct months.

End result (without filters 12m values):

(with filters, values accroding to slicer):

I hope this post helps to solve your issue and if it does consider accepting it as a solution and giving the post a thumbs up!

The solution is great but kinda similar of having another table as a Slicer. My aim was to be able to check if the slicer is selected in DAX even though it might bi filtered via the X-Axis in the visual.
