Line and stacked column chart: Hide series in legend when all blank values.

I have a Line and stacked column chart with 1 column series and 4 line series.

When one of the line series measures returns all blanks, there is no line visible - good, that is what I want.

But I also want the line series to not appear in the legend when there is no line visible.

How can I achieve this?

Hi @Anonymous ,

By my test, I'm afraid you can't do it directly. Here's the workaround.

1.Create a card visual, then create a measure like below, put the measure in it and turn off the category label.


Card = ""



2.Create a color measure.


Color =
VAR _V =
    IF ( MAX ( 'Table'[Column5] ) = BLANK (), 1, 0 )
    "RGBA(255, 255, 255, " & _V & ")"


3. Use the color measure in the card background color conditional formatting like this.




4.Put the card visual on top of the Column5.


When there is blank of Column5, it display like this:



When there're values in Column5, it will appear.


I attach my sample below for reference.

@v-yanjiang-msft thanks for the suggestion. I already know how to use this "rectangle color background to show/hide visuals" method. It would work in the case there is one legend entry to hide, but in my case I have two legend entries to hide. Hiding them would leave the remaining visible legend entries misaligned with a gap in between.
