Still 'stop work' on this one.  Conditional formatting of visual columns for properties other than 'colour' still not available.


We have a static attribute table of glyphs used throughout our system.  

'CPP Traffic Light Short Status' is the name of the static table that the table below is driven off.



For example the dashboard below has traffic lights setup.  Wanting to replace the problematic image traffix lights (the two larger image columns to the left) with the glyph attribute driven columns.  But programming the font size is the last hurdle due to the missing conditional functionality from pbi desktop.



Conditional formatting, right mouse menu selected ...



... only Background color and Font color changeable attributes available.


Note Icons and Web URL will NOT suffice.  Using unicode glyphs gives 'the whole world' of unicode character shapes and not just the very few preset ones chosen by m$.
