No data value for 0 in highlight mode of Donut(Ring)/Pie Chart

If you make a selection in another visual, and the interaction mode for your Donut or Pie chart is "Highlight", the data value 0 is not shown in the Donut chart, while this works fine for e.g. Bar charts, see screenshot.


I find it a bit inconsistent, because the small bar chart (bottom right of the screenshot) works fine, so it seems to depend on the type of chart.
Interestingly, it works if you display the percentage value instead of the data value in the Donut chart, but the 0 data value itself is never shown in the Donut/Pie charts.


Can anyone help in this matter? Thanks!

Thanks @amitchandak , but cross filtering is not what we (our customer) want. We want to have a "cross highlighting" for the Donut chart! It works for other types of charts, so this seems to be an issue with the Donut/Pie chart ...

HI @kashia,

In fact, these visuals not contain highlight interaction mode for a long time. Perhaps you can submit an idea with highlight interaction mode.

@v-shex-msfthmm, I think the highlight interaction works fine for the Donut/Pie chart in principle, it is just that the data value for 0 is not being displayed while all other data values are shown and e.g. percentage zero values (0%) are also shown. I don't see a reason, why this is not implemented for the 0 data value, as it could be done the same way as it is done for other data values and it already works for e.g. bar charts ...
