Different behaviour of Custom Visual in power BI Service and Desktop



Trying to develop custom table visual. my input dataset looks like this -:

8:00 AM01$000%0
8:00 AM20$220%2
9:00 AM10$111%0


I am trying to add the symbols i.e. $ and % at last while printing the particular element of column "header3" and "header5" (prefixing or suffixing the symbol before/after data),  based on the format these columns are giving in options.dataview


format for % is-: "0%"

format for $ is-: ""$"#,##0;\("$"#,##0\)"  (idk, looks like regular exp)


So trying to prefix and suffix the symbol based on diff. conditions.

Working in PowerBI service nicely but when i am paackaging it and running in Power BI Desktop, It is appending $ sign with each cell's element in table.



Not sure if, format is getting changed for table columns in dekstop version.


A helping hand is appreciated.....
