Constraint values in multiselect slicer

This is my second post on this topic I hope I will get an answer as I didn't receive any for the previous one,
My issue is with the multi-select slicer should be conditioned 
some values in my slicer should not be selected together example:

The slicer column is a distinct value:



the logic I need to apply is:
If A and or B is selected whether alone or with others but not D, then hide or remove D, and vice versa if D is selected then remove or hide A and B whether D is selected alone or with others

any help will be appreciated.

Hello @NourJ,


Create a measure that checks if the selected values in the slicer contain either "A" or "B" and if they do, the measure will remove "D" from the selection. Similarly, if the selected values contain "D", the measure will remove "A" and "B" from the selection.


Selected Values = 
VAR SelectedValues = VALUES(Table[Column])
IF (
    CONTAINSSTRING(CONCATENATEX(SelectedValues, Table[Column], ","), "A") 
        || CONTAINSSTRING(CONCATENATEX(SelectedValues, Table[Column], ","), "B"),
    EXCEPT(SelectedValues, VALUES(Table[Column]), VALUES(Table[Column]) = "D"),
    IF (
        CONTAINSSTRING(CONCATENATEX(SelectedValues, Table[Column], ","), "D"),
        EXCEPT(SelectedValues, VALUES(Table[Column]), VALUES(Table[Column]) IN {"A", "B"}),



I hope this helps! Let me know if you have any further questions.
