Icon FX -- Rules hard coded?

 

Is it possible to have the condional formatting (rules) defined by a field ; depending on the KPI , each has a differnt target , I want to apply condiontal formatting rule against the % defined by KPI's target

 

  • KPI 1 90% target
  • KPI 2 80% target 

It appears to only allow me hard code the rules, apply one rule to all

@carlol , You can color measure and icon measure, but in that case you you need use icon measure as different value(column) and use conditional formatting on that using field value option

 

example

 

/////Arrow
Arrow =
var _change =[Net Sales YTD]-[Net Sales LYTD]
return
SWITCH (
TRUE(),
_change > 0, UNICHAR(9650),
_change = 0, UNICHAR(9654),
_change < 0, UNICHAR(9660)
)


/////Arrow Color
Arrow color =
var _change =[Net Sales YTD]-[Net Sales LYTD]
return
SWITCH (
TRUE(),
_change > 0, "green",
_change = 0, "blue",
_change < 0, "red"
)

I cannot get it to display the arrow 

Am I doing something stupid?

Tried 

Arrow = VAR Down = UNICHAR(11167)
    VAR Up = UNICHAR(11165)
    VAR Side = UNICHAR(11166)
    RETURN
       IF(KPIData[%] < 0, Down, IF(KPIData[%]  > 0.1, Up, Side))
 
Arrow =
var _change =KPIData[%]
return
SWITCH (
TRUE(),
_change > 0, UNICHAR(9650),
_change = 0, UNICHAR(9654),
_change < 0, UNICHAR(9660)
)
