Does the "Dynamic" format option exist in "Visual Studio" Tabular model designer ?

Hello Community,

I am trying to achieve something similar to this post https://medium.com/@enridge/different-ways-to-use-dynamic-measures-in-power-bi-448e226667c1
where I have both percentage formatted measures and number formatted in the same switch calculation. I cannot seem to find the Dynamic option in the format settings like the option in Power BI Desktop:

What I tried doing is forcing the format in the expression itself since I cannot find the dynamic option in Visual Studio, but when placing the measure in a bar chart it doesnt show any data when selecting "% Of Budget" in the slicer. It seems like the visual has an issue handling two different formats.
Dynamic Measure =
SWITCH (
VALUES ( 'Measures List'[Measure Name] ),
"Sales", [Sales],
"Budget", [Budget],
"% Of Budget", FORMAT([% Of Budget],"0.00%)"
)

Best regards,
Oscarca

Thank you for your answer ! The field parameter doesn't serm to be supported in the visual studio tabular designer. It doesn't recognize the "NAMEOF" function that is used in the field parameter syntax.

@oscarca,

 

Field parameters are a good option. Each measure's format is used, and you avoid using the FORMAT function that converts values to text.
