Data sorting in custom visual


I have just implemented simple custom visual for PowerBI embedded reports, it looks like table, but with "bars" as background.Screenshot_3.pngI'd like to know - is there any possibility to sort columns via click on "table" headers now?

I saw that there was such functionality in PowerBI-visuals-core - through IVisualHostServices, using: (host:)

I know that I an sort it using three dots menu, but I want to sort data by click on columns headers.


Best regards.

Hello @CyberiX,


There's no way to sort values using the new API unfortunately.
