Dialog Box for Custom Developed Visual?

 

I want a custom dialog box to display when a user clicks on an element within a visual.

 

I found the following page:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/power-bi/developer/visuals/create-display-dialog-box#create-the-dia... 

 

The page describes how to build a date picker dialog.  In the new class, there are two import statements that I get an error on:

The first error I encountered was that powerbi was not defined, but I fixed that by including the "import powerbi from "powerbi-visuals-api" before the lines above.

 

It looks like DialogConstructor Options is not a named member, nor is DialogAction.

 

Have there been changes that stopped this from working?  Has it been moved somewhere else?

 

Thanks,

William

Hi @WZorn,

I haven't personally used this functionality yet to assist in detail, but which version of powerbi-visuals-api is in your visual's package.json?

These interfaces are added in 3.7.0, so if this is older then you'll need to update this version, e.g. npm i powerbi-visuals-api@3.7.0 or @latest

Regards,

Daniel

Well, that's a step in the right direction.  I can see what's happening now.

 

When I run npm i powerbi-visuals-api@latest it installs version 3.8.2, but as soon as I execute pbiviz start, it reverts to 2.6.0.

 

AH.  The pbiviz.json still had the earlier version of the api referenced.

 

The line:

"apiVersion""2.6.0"
needed to be changed to:
"apiVersion""3.8.2",
