conditional background formatting to table based on slicer selection

Hi Folks,

Here is the problem..

I want to get below result as of below screenshot using below data model and slicer and table



Please note that , Slicer and table is used with same store field from store table.

So I want to get background colour enabled in the table rows based on the slicer value selected in the slicer.


I want an idea measure to be used without creating extra tables.


Thank you

Hi @Rasitha_PB 

If you build a relationship between Sales and Store table, you couldn't use conditional background formatting successuflly. Due to the relationship and slicer and table is used with same store field from store table, Power BI will make all selected judgment results return true. 


It is better for you to build an extra unrelated store table. Or you can remove the relationship between Stores and Sales table, then use Sales[Store] in table instead of Store[Store] and build a new measure to calculate the Sum Amount per Stores. Then you can use conditional formatting in table visual successfully.

@Rasitha_PB , to do this you need slicer using an independent slicer table.


Then you can have measure like

color =

Switch( True () ,

max(Table[store]) in values(Store[Store]) , "Blue",




Then you can use conditional formatting with the field value option and use this measure


if needed , check

Hi @amitchandak ,

I am trying to find a different way , as I have many visuals in a Dashboard page as some of them are connected to this slicer.
