Focus on a time period selected by clicking the 2 endpoints


Is it possible to "zoom" in between a specific period of time in a line chart?
For example.: data is between 2019.01.01 - 2019.12.31.
I would like to click on 2019.05.15 and 2019.05.25 on a chart and it'll just filter out those dates that are between them.


Thank you,

Hi @Gaborfromungarn,

Based on my test, it is impossible to achieve focus or highlight effect on line chart, you can use other type charts(column, bar charts) to achieve your requirement.

I'd like to suggest you create a new calendar table without relationship to original table records(use new calendar date as source slicer), then you can write a measure to compare selected date range and current table date and return conditional colors and enable conditional formatting on 'data color'.

Measure =
IF ( MAX ( 'Table'[Date] ) IN ALLSELECTED ( 'Calendar'[Date] ), "red", "blue" )

Hi @Gaborfromungarn ,


As far as I know, the basic line chart don't have this filter function.


I'm not sure whether you know the basic "slicer" visualization of DATE type has this function.


You can try to create a slicer, then put your date column into it.


Then you can choose the type of slice to "BETWEEN" by clicking the "DOWN" button on the right top of the slicer.


Hope that can solve your problem.

I understand that the slicer could solve the technical part of filtering,
however I might need an alternative chart that can solve this issue. 


Are there any chart types that I can use?

Thank you,
