I cannot find the option for gradient the colors for barcharts

Hello Guys, 


I'm trying to give gradient colors for my bar chart, but the option that is available is just to change it to a solid color through the option "bars", which does not allow me to activate the gradient:



Whereas in some tutorial videos there is an option called "data colors" where the gradient can be activated:


How can I find this option in order to activate the gradient feature?


Hope someone can help me.

In advanced, thank you

Hi  @AlbertoAguiRevi ,


If you use Legend or have two values in your X-axis, the FX icon will not be displayed.

Refer to

If this not the case and still it is not coming, can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data. We can better understand the problem and help you.

Hello @AlbertoAguiRevi ,


You click on the bar section and then click on Fx and then you can specify the gradient color.
