2017 October Update:- How to create toggle buttons?

Hello All,

 

I have seen the video of the october update.

And i found something very interesting that 

at 15.29 min of this video 

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jksjtR8GnBE

By author Amanda Cofsky mentioned about toggle buttons to change the visuals.

 

But she didnt shown how did she created those toggle buttons.

Is it a slicer? or Is it a custom created?

 

Can anyone suggest me please.

Thanks,

Mohan V

Hi

 

It is explained earlier in the video: https://youtu.be/jksjtR8GnBE?t=9m48s

She used two images, one with scatter selected and one with matrix selected. Let's call them image scatter and image matrix.

 

Image scatter is linked to a bookmark with following settings in the selection pane:

- shows matrix visuals

- hide image scatter

- show image matrix

 

Image matrix is linked to a bookmark with following settings in the selection pane:

- shows scatter visuals

- hide image matrix

- show image scatter

Hi there - I am able to link Toggle 1 to Bookmark 1 but when I go to link Toggle 2 to Bookmark 2, Toggle 1 automatically changes it's link to Bookmark 2 also. How do I get separate links for each bookmark? Thanks!

I am eager to see how Amanda has created the dynamic toggle image. Unfortunately, it is not yet been solved in this thread conversation.

this doesn't solve how Amanda created or downloaded the toggle button.

In the video I saw there image which work as toggle button. Where I will get this? and how to hide and unhide using image ?

Hi everyone,

Having played around and implemented the "toggle" feature, I've come up with an issue (I have reported it in the issues forum but have little hopes it will get noticed). 

 

Imagine you have a page in a report with visuals which you can "toggle" between as we have been discussing. Now include a drill through field. Go to another page where the drill through field is present an apply the drill through. Up comes the page with toggle options and drillthrough filter correctly applied. BUT, when you trigger the "toggle", alas the drill through filter disappears. And indeed disappears completely if you toggle back and forth. Can anyone else reproduce this?

 

There is of course a logic behind all this, because when you set up both bookmarks you are saving the visual and filter settings. The drill through filter is respected on the "toggle landing page", but when you activate the toggle, I guess it reverts to the saved settings defined in the bookmark.

 

It would be great if the drill through filter were respected when toggling back and forth. 

 

I would really appreciate if anyone could prove me wrong!

 

Regards,

 

Paul.

Hi everyone, it works great on PBI Desktop, but I when I publish my report, I'm unable to switch between one dash and the other with the bookmark feature. I click the toggle button and nothing happens.

What is the issue ? if you share the pbix file it will be good So i will have a look 

@mdaamirkhanThank you for offering to help!

 

Here is your file, but modified to include two pages: "Drill Through" (DT) and "Toggle between table and Matrix" (TBTM).

 

Example of Drill through to "toggle page"

 

If you go to the DT page, select a channel by right clicking and choosing drill through to TBTM, the TBTM page opens up with the drill through filter coming from the DT page (based on the field selected). However, when you toggle to the other visuals, the Drill Through filter disappears, and indeed it is also missing if you toggle back.

 

What I am saying is that if you have a "toggle page" as a drill through from other pages to dive deeper into data, the ideal behaviour would be that the drill through filter be kept when "toggling back and forth". But it doesn't.

 

Hope my explanation isn't too confusing!.

 

Thanks again!

 

Regards,

 

Paul.

How I create a Toggle

The trick here is to

1. Upload two images - Toggle left/right (see the reply above)

2. Turn on/off the visibility of the two images - thereby creating a Toggle effect.

3. Use two Bookmarks - as two saved scenarios - and click and jump between the two Bookmarks.

Toggle button sample.pbix (download) - link to reply above

 

1: The Image

Menu: Home, Click the 'Image' button

1. Upload a normal image (see the reply above)

2. Change Link to On.

3. Change Back to Bookmark

4. Select the bookmark to use (we create them below)

 

2: Selection pane - toogle image visibility

Menu: View, Click the 'Selection Pane'

Toggle what to show in the 'Selection plane'.

Next, we will save that scenario under the Bookmark pane.

 

3. Bookmark pane - save two bookmarks

Menu: View, Click the 'Bookmark Pane'

Set scenario 1 and save it as Bookmark1

Set scenario 2 and save it as Bookmark2
