Static conditional data color formatting all visuals with same hierarchy

Hello Community,


i have several charts with a hierarchy as Axis. I want uniform data colors. So if i filter my hierarchy with a slicer and have the same level drilled down in every chart (e.g. lvl3), i want that all visuals have the same color. Therefore i added a new colomn for the hex code


Level1Level2Level3Level4ProductIDColor Hex Code
Bike    #0B580008
Bikefront parts   #0B5B0008
Bikefront partssteering  #0B5E0008

BikePackage  pg_55#0B730008
Bike    #0B760008
Bike    #0B790008
Bike    #0B7C0008


As is mentioned, i want that every level has the same color over all visuals, when they are drilled down into the same level. How can i achieve that? My slicer is selecting multiple lower levels, when i select an item e.g. on level 3 it also selects level4 and ProductID.


I tried it with a second table (colorcode) with only the ProductID and a color hex code, but this only made a uniform color code for the last hierarchy level -> ProductID. I made it this way:




get selected item = 
    ISFILTERED('hierarchy'[ProductID]), SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy[ProductID]'),
    ISFILTERED('hierarchy'[Level4]), SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level4]),
    ISFILTERED('hierarchy'[Level3]), SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level3]),
    ISFILTERED('hierarchy'[Level2]), SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level2]),
    ISFILTERED('hierarchy'[Level1]), SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level1]),
    "select an item"





and then a measure as conditional formatting for the data colors:




data color v4 = 
VAR itemm = [get selected item]
LOOKUPVALUE(colorcode[color], colorcode[ProductID], itemm)


This logic is aplied to ProductID, but i don't know how to transform it for all hierachy items.

Add another column next to your hex code which is:
[Level1] & [Level2] & [Level3] & [Level4] & [ProductID]
i.e. they're concatenated together

Change your switch statement so it returns [Level1] & [Level2] if you're at [Level2] or [Level1] & [Level2] & [Level3] if you're at [Level3] etc.  I prefer ISINSCOPE for this:

get selected item =
ISINSCOPE('hierarchy'[ProductID]), SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level1]) & SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level2]) & SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level3]) & SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level4]) & SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy[ProductID]'),
ISINSCOPE('hierarchy'[Level4]), SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level1]) & SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level2]) & SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level3]) & SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level4]),
ISINSCOPE('hierarchy'[Level3]), SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level1]) & SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level2]) & SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level3]),
ISINSCOPE('hierarchy'[Level2]), SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level1]) & SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level2]),
ISINSCOPE('hierarchy'[Level1]), SELECTEDVALUE('hierarchy'[Level1]),
"select an item"

Change [data color v4] so it looks up to the new column you added to return the colour for that level.
