Dax command for conditional highlighting

Hi All,

 

I've been following along the Guy in a Cube video to set up conditional highlighting, and I've run into a problem with my dax code:

 

highlighting =
var _Source =
Values (Highlight[Source])
var _tohighlight =
SELECTEDVALUE('Trend_data'[Source])
var _Colour =
VALUES(Highlight[HTML_Colour])
Var _filtered =
ISFILTERED(Highlight[Source])
var _result =
SWITCH(
TRUE,
Not ( _filtered ), "#5BAF8D",
_tohighlight in _source
&& _filtered,"#5BAF8D",_Colour)
 
I'm getting an error which essentially says syntax for ')' and I can't work out where I've gone wrong! Is anything obvious jumping out at anyone?

Hi @Anonymous 

You are missing the RETURN part, necessary when you use variables:

highlighting =
VAR _Source =
    VALUES ( Highlight[Source] )
VAR _tohighlight =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Trend_data'[Source] )
VAR _Colour =
    VALUES ( Highlight[HTML_Colour] )
VAR _filtered =
    ISFILTERED ( Highlight[Source] )
VAR _result =
    SWITCH (
        TRUE,
        NOT ( _filtered ), "#5BAF8D",
        _tohighlight IN _Source
            && _filtered, "#5BAF8D",
        _Colour
    )
RETURN
    _result
