Conditional formatting Stacked Chart Data Label Values


For some unknown reason, I can't seem to get the data labels to change their colours they way I want.


I want different categories to have a different colour so white text on darker category color, and dark text on the lighter category colour


Playing around with a matrix, and cell elements conditoinal formattings, it works fine based on retreiving either the rows field value, or a measure which does a switch condition.


Currenlty within Power BI - Field value set to mcasesubjectfrontcolor, but all showing up white

Data Labels do not support conditional formatting, you could custom it but not format it as conditional.


You could vote the same idea for your requirement and make this feature come sooner.
