MAXX of Category based on DistinctCount of rows

Hi, 
I have a sample data below. What I'm trying to do is show the State which has the Max value of rows based on the distinct count of IDs.
Answer = West, which has 4 IDs count
I know how to show the value 4, but not the State = West. 
My code:


DistinctCount = DISTINCTCOUNT(Table[ID])
Max Value = MAXX(values(Table[State]),[DistinctCount])

IDState
AWest
BWest
CEast
DNorth
EWest
FWest
GEast


Can anyone help me with bringing out the value "West"?

Thank you.

Hi @Anonymous ,

 

I have checked Jihwan_Kim's code, I think his measure will alway return "West", due to it will return the max state.

My Sample:

The max state in my sample should be "East".

 

State name max count: =
VAR _MaxCount =
    MAXX ( VALUES ( 'Table'[State] ), [DistinctCount] )
RETURN
    MAXX (
        FILTER ( VALUES ( 'Table'[State] ), [DistinctCount] = _MaxCount ),
        [State]
    )

 

Result in my sample is as below.

Test by your data, result should return "West".

State name max count: =
MAXX (
    GROUPBY (
        ADDCOLUMNS ( VALUES ( 'Table'[State] ), "@count", [DistinctCount] ),
        'Table'[State],
        "@maxcount", MAXX ( CURRENTGROUP (), [@count] )
    ),
    'Table'[State]
)
