How to write a DAX function when a Slicer value is selected/included?

I have a Slicer, i.e.

3.PNG

 

I want to write a logic DAX function using IF() like:

  • If "Successful" is selected, then do A, otherwise do B
  • "Successful" could be selected as a single or one of multiple selections, e.g.

Singe

3a.PNG

In the multiple selections

3b.PNG

  • When "Successful" is not selected, e.g...

3c.PNG

 

How to write the DAX function to identify whether or not "Successful" is selected?

@Anonymous ,

 

You may create a measure using dax below:

Result = IF(CONTAINSSTRINGEXACT(CONCATENATEX(ALLSELECTED('Table'), 'Table'[project_status], ""), "Successful") = TRUE(), "A", "B")

I see @v-yuta-msft  has provided a solution (I wasn't even aware of the function CONTAINSSTRINGEXACT!)

 

Just as an alternative, I worked on a different approach:

 

No selection.JPG

 

is C selected NO.JPG

 

is C selected YES.JPG

 

is C selected MEasure.JPG

Here is simpler one: it works if we have to keep a check if any option is selected, If nothing selected or selected both case need to be worked, then remove Is filtered and use if satetment.

To make sure Slicer is filtered:

Check Selection = SWITCH(ISFILTERED('Table'[Value]),
 "Successfull" IN ALLSELECTED('Table'[Value]),"y","n")



When nothing selected/Something selected bot scenarios to cover:
Filtered/NotFIltered=If("Successfull" IN ALLSELECTED('Table'[Value]),"y","n")

Note that this method breaks if you have two rows in the slicer table that contain the same text, e.g.

 

"Sales"

and "Sales (adjusted)". When "Sales (adjusted)" is selected in the slicer, the code with think that the "Sales" option was selected, when it wasn't.

 

Result = IF(CONTAINSSTRINGEXACT(CONCATENATEX(ALLSELECTED('Table'), 'Table'[project_status], ""), "Sales") = TRUE(), "A", "B")

The COUNTROWS method that @PaulDBrown posted might be more robust.

you can use SELECTEDVALUE in your measure. For example:

 

measure = IF(SELECTEDVALUE(table[project_status]) = “Successful”,  [measure 1], [measure 2])

Thank you.

 

But it only works for a single selection. If I select multiple values including "Successful", it can't work...

Thanks.

 

In my case, need to change the last line into: if(calc>=1,"YES","NO")
