Dropdown isn't closes when custom visual selected


I have a problem with the custom visual. I have one slicer with a dropdown list, one custom visual and many built-in visuals. When the dropdown is open and I am clicking on a built-in visual the dropdown closes . But if I am clicking on a custom visual the dropdown does not close.

Is there any solution or workaround to this problem?

Hello @sinda


This is expected behavior due to fact that all of custom visuals are executed inside of iframe sandboxed element that prevents event propagation.

I suppose that it'd be better to include a timer (setTimeout JS function) that closes the dropdown one once the visual loses focus.
