Single Line Chart with multiple Colours

Hello all and HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

 

I'm trying to create a line chart with a single line that has multiple colours to it.  Ie.  If the line goes up, its red, line goes down, its green, flat lined, yellow!  I was expecting this would be as simple as changing the colours and setting up a conditional format like you can with the bar graphs buuuuuuuut, I'm only seeing a single colour selection for line charts.

 

Am I missing something here because this is something I thought was fairly common when it came to line charts!  

 

Thnks for the response and have an awesome weekend!

Hi , @KilJhard 

According to my research and testing, there is currently no official visual that supports dividing a line into multiple colors in a line chart in different situations, but as far as I know, the color of the data label corresponding to each line chart's data point is variable, you can simply refer to this example demo: you can first use your line according to your needs Write a measure in the context of the chart grouping to define the corresponding color for each data point, and then create a simple column chart:

Then under Data colors, set up conditional formatting on the bars:

The result is like this:

Now switch the visual to a line chart.

Thanks @v-yueyunzh-msft I had a feeling that was the case but just strange that it's not possible.  Obviously something thats used reguarlly of line charts on a wide range of other applications.  People love colours and seeing them change! 🙂
