Is it possible to change the transparancy of the filter in a visual?
I have a line chart here and it is really unclear what data is highlighted, I'd like to set the transparancy of the things that are not highlighted on 0. If this is not possible out of the box is it easy to make a custom visual out of this?
Curious to hear your opinion.
I like your solution however it doesn't seem to work for me.
I think it is because I want to filter on the column header, instead of a value in one column (country in your example).
Do you know if that's right?
Thanks for the help anyway!
I think your best option may be a Disconnected Slicer - read about it here
It seems you have about 15 Measures
If you've been relying on the built-in calculations (i.e. dragging a Column to the Values area)
you may have to write the equivalent Measures.
Hope this helps!
Unfortunately we don't have such setting.
But what you could do is Hide the Legend in the Chart OR better yet Position it on Top (if you need to make room for the Slicer)
then create a Slicer using the same Legend Field and the Slicer will filter all others in effect setting trasnsparency to zero
not exactly what you asked for but with the slicer you can select multiple items which unfortunately you can't do with the Legend too
Hope this helps!
Thanks for the suggestion but the big problem here is that I'm not using a legend. The legend that you see here are just all input columns in the value section. I don't think it is possible to create a slicer on column headers, or is it?
Any alternative options?

Yes, current power bi visual not support to create a slicer on column headers like a pivot table.
