Bar Chart colour based on Table

Hi,

 

I have a Table showing what versions of software are approved and a Bar Chart showingwhat is actually installed on the user's device. I would like to change the colour of this bar to get it to stand out. Is this possible? Driving me mad!

HI @Anonymous,

Maybe you can try to use the following measure formula on data color formatting to highlight the records that existed in your Approved Software Versions tables:

Measure =
VAR selected =
    ALLSELECTED ( 'Approved Software Versions'[iOS] )
VAR currVersion =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( 'Purchased App Versions'[iOS Version] )
RETURN
    IF ( currVersion IN selected, "Red", "Blue" )

Hi @Anonymous - you can try something like this.  There are probably more elegant ways to do it, but this should work

 

Create a Measure 

 

Highlight =
VAR __myVer =
    SELECTEDVALUE( Table[iPadOSVer] )
VAR __myAppVal =
    LOOKUPVALUE ( Table2[Approved Version}, Table2[OS], "iOS")
RETURN
    IF ( __myDt = __myAppVal, 1, 0 )

 

Then do conditional formatting on your bars using Rules.  When Highlight is 1 use your highlight color, else use your default color.

 

Hope this helps

Hi David (@dedelman_clng )

Thanks for sharing this, I have tried to add this measure but am getting the error below, any ideas please? (Sorry didn't realise this would take me to bits that I have never done before, which I like!)

Thanks!

Hi @Anonymous  - "highlight" was the name of my measure, not a DAX command. Sorry for the confusion. 

Also check on the LOOKUPVALUE statement. It needs at least 3 parameters

 

LOOKUPVALUE (Column to Return, Column to match, Value to Match)

 

MeasureName =
VAR __myVer =
    SELECTEDVALUE( Table[iPadOSVer] )
VAR __myAppVal =
    LOOKUPVALUE ( Table2[Approved Version}, Table2[OS], "iOS")
RETURN
    IF ( __myVer = __myAppVal, 1, 0 )

It sure is possible, but it is hard to suggest a solution based on the info you have provided. Can you share an example with dummy data, or even a PBIX file?

Hi @PaulDBrown - Please can you suggest how I can share this file with you? The only way I can see is to use a Shared OneDrive folder? Thanks for your help!

@Anonymous 

Yes, use Onedrive (or any other cloud service) to upload the file and share from there
