Title Switcher with Calculation Groups

Hi, so i have a visual where I show numeric values and I can switch between KPIs with a Calculation Group. 

Next, I have a CG that calculates the numeric values into percentage of the whole. I have a chiclet Slicer to switch the % view  on or off. 
The Title switcher should work like this: if I select the % Value Button, I want the title to be "Käufer-Anteil" and when the % Value button is not selected, there should only be "Käufer".

When I turn the Slicer on to show % values, my title switcher gives out a 1 (I believe numeric value) and when I turn it off it says true. 

I would need the Titleswitcher Measure to change the 1 out to a true and the true to be a false. ,



This is the Measure

Titleswitcher =
VAR _Selection = SELECTEDVALUE('% Anteile'[Name] ) = "% - Werte"
VAR _LogicTest = IF(_Selection = "TRUE", "-Anteil", "")
_SelectedKPI &" "& IF(_Selection, "- Anteil", "")

Theres then an error code:

Hi @Michella ,


The reason for the error is that "True" is a Text type, and the type returned by _Selection is a Boolean type, which cannot be compared directly.



The formula needs to be converted as follows:

MeasureTitleswitcher = 
VAR _Selection =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( '% Anteile'[Name] ) = "% - Werte"
    IF ( _Selection, "-Anteil", " " )


MeasureTitleswitcher =
VAR _Selection =
    SELECTEDVALUE ( '% Anteile'[Name] ) = "% - Werte"
VAR _LogicTest =
    IF ( _Selection, "-Anteil", " " )
VAR _SelectedKPI =
    _SelectedKPI & " "
        & IF ( _Selection, "- Anteil", " " )


If the problem is still not resolved, please provide detailed error information and let me know immediately. Looking forward to your reply.

Best Regards,

Hi Henry,


thanks for the help, for me it doesnt solve the problem. But my button to switch from percentage to absolute number is from a calculation group with only one measure and you have a slicer with two.
What should the measure be for absolute? I made it to be SELECTEDMEASURE() but this doesnt bring me the old error. My titleswitcher is formatted as text if this is from relevance.


Thanks again, Michaela

If I try only this part of the code
VAR _Selection = SELECTEDVALUE('% Anteile'[Name] ) = "% - Werte"


and use the % Value Button, it'll show 1, if the button is selected and "TRUE" if the button is not selected.
