Implementing AND/OR logic in Slicers

Hi Folks,

I came across a client requirement today stating the need of Slicers to work with AND/OR logic. The slicers in Power BI by default work by OR logic. So, I created a simple measure in order to implement AND logic. 

Dataset consists of following two tables.

Now, I want the name of students who opted for both subjects 'Maths' and 'English' and not 'Maths' or 'English' or 'both'. 

1. First of all, I took Subject column values as slicer values and dragged Name and Marks to grid.

2. Now, I created a measure giving me the count of subjects [SubjectCount]

3. Created another measure comparing the count of subjects selected on slicer and that of rows filtered from table. This measure returns 1 when a student has opted for all selected subjects, else 0.

4. Now, we add this measure to filter pane of grid visual such that it's value is greater than 0.

And that's it! This way, the slicer works by AND logic. Please find the snapshot below.

Do let me know if there is a simpler way to achieve this.

@NikitaDalela - Right, there are existing solutions for AND slicers, like this one:

Also, what it sounds like you implemented is basically the Complex Selector pattern:
