SWITCH between filters

I have a date table with some custom periods, where if the date is included in the period it is marked with 1.


What I need is a filter where I can select which of these custom periods I would like to see, and as far as I can see, I should use switch. 


Table 1: Transacitons

TransactionDateID  | TransactionAmount


Table 2: TransactionDates

TransactionDateID | TransactionDate | CustomPeriod1 | CustomPeriod2 | CustomPeriod3


So the slicer should look like this: 






And if number 1 is selected, the filter should apply that only rows where the CustomPeriod1 = 1 should be included and so on. 


Can you help me?

@C-Jac , You need to have a table with three rows





Now based on the selected input 


measure =

Var _sel = Switch(selectedValue(Period[period]) ,

"CustomPeriod1", Filter(TransactionDates,TransactionDates[CustomPeriod1]=1),

"CustomPeriod2", Filter(TransactionDates,TransactionDates[CustomPeriod2]=1),

"CustomPeriod3", Filter(TransactionDates,TransactionDates[CustomPeriod3]=1)



calculate(sum(Transaction[TransactionAmount]), _sel)

I tried this but it gives me following error: 



Repayments By Period:=

VAR _sel = SWITCH(SELECTEDVALUE(ShowPeriodsTable[Period]),
"1 Year" , FILTER(_TransactionDateCalendar, _TransactionDateCalendar[ThisQuarterAndNext3] = 1),
"2 Years" , FILTER(_TransactionDateCalendar , _TransactionDateCalendar[ThisQuarterAndNext7] = 1),
"3 Years", FILTER(_TransactionDateCalendar , _TransactionDateCalendar[ThisQuarterAndNext11] = 1),
"4 Years", FILTER(_TransactionDateCalendar, _TransactionDateCalendar[ThisQuarterAndNext15] = 1)

CALCULATE(SUM(Fact_Transaction[Transaction Amount]), _sel)
