Get value from date slider(slicer)

Hi all,

I have a report with a Date slicer. 

slider.png

I want to use the selection of this slider as title in an other visual.

I understand that I need to make a measure and use conditional formating. 

How do I create the measure? I foolowed the solution from How to get value from date slicer . This result in this code

ms_Min closed date selected = CALCULATE(MIN('PMCC Tickets Closed'[Closed_Date].[Date]);ALLSELECTED('PMCC Tickets Closed'))
ms_Max closed date selected = CALCULATE(MAX('PMCC Tickets Closed'[Closed_Date].[Date]);ALLSELECTED('PMCC Tickets Closed'))
ms_Selected Closed date = "Closed tickets per user for the period " & [ms_Min closed date selected] & " - " & [ms_Max closed date selected]

 Last measure is used as conditional format value.

 

This gives this result:

there is a difference between selected and displayed.

How can I solve this?

Hi @Foolke ,

Please delete the'.[Date]' in your measure, it will transfer a larger built-in date table in power bi so that you will get the wrong date value.

Min date =
CALCULATE ( MIN ( 'Calendar'[Date] ), ALLSELECTED ( 'Calendar' ) )
Max Date =
CALCULATE ( MAX ( 'Calendar'[Date] ), ALLSELECTED ( 'Calendar' ) )
Selected date = "selected date:" & [Min date] & "-" & [Max Date]

You will get the right result:

Also, you can only create single measure by using variance to get the same result:

Measure = 
var _mindate = CALCULATE(MIN('Calendar'[Date]),ALLSELECTED('Calendar'))
var _maxdate = CALCULATE(MAX('Calendar'[Date]),ALLSELECTED('Calendar'))
return 
"Selected date:" & _mindate & "-" & _maxdate

@Foolke 

hope these are measures and not columns. The slicer is on closed_date.

 

Try a measure like this

measure =
var _min = MINX(ALLSELECTED('PMCC Tickets Closed'),'PMCC Tickets Closed'[Closed_Date] )
var _max = MAXX(ALLSELECTED('PMCC Tickets Closed'),'PMCC Tickets Closed'[Closed_Date] )
return
"Closed entries per user for the period" & _min & " - " & _max
