How to change fontSize capability limits.

Hi,

 

I have following problem: i can't define limits of the fontSize  (apparently the upper one is 40 and the lower is 8). Additionaly I have not got a slider beside the input number:

 

Capabilities

 

My capabilities.json :

 

 

 "objects": {
        "customProperties": {
            "displayName": "Custom Properties",
            "properties": {
                "title": {
                    "displayName": "Title",
                    "type": { "text": true }
                },
                "rotation": {
                    "displayName": "Rotation",
                    "type": { "numeric": true }
                },
                "textSize": {
                    "displayName": "Text Size",
                    "type": {
                        "formatting": {
                            "fontSize": true
                        }
                    }
                }
                
                }
            }
    }

 

 

My settings.ts:

 

 

import DataViewObjectsParser = powerbi.extensibility.utils.dataview.DataViewObjectsParser;

export class VisualSettings extends DataViewObjectsParser {
  public customProperties: customPropertiesData = new customPropertiesData();
}
export class customPropertiesData {
  public title: string = "Title";
  public rotation: number = 0;
  public textSize: number = 100;
}

 

Anyone knows a solution? I would be grateful.

Please rename textSize inti something else. For example: "fontSizeValue".

Ok, now I have sth like this:

"fontSizeValue": {
    "displayName": "Text Size",
    "type": {
        "formatting": {
            "fontSize": true
        }
    }
},

And the output is:

 

 

 

-Secondly, is there any option to leave data fields empty and eventually remove dataRoles from capabilities.json ? I am working on a totally static visual that doesn't need any data besides that entered with objects (Format tab). And my Visual is not updating unless I feed it with some data.

 

Thanks for the reply!

You should use numeric type instead of fontSize as well.

 

As far as I know, Power BI does not allot to use Custom Visuals w/o filled data fields.

Ok, but now I have just regular input field:

 fontsize1.JPG

 

And the key goal is to get that fancy field with up/down arrows .

Hi, would you be able to publish the code required to achieve this result please.

 

I'm trying to produce a visual for a 55" TV in the office and the max font size of 40 on the card visual just isn't enough.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hi,

 

Please check an April release of PowerBi Desktop that will be delivered soon.

 

Kind Regards,

Thanks Evgenii, I look forward to it!

Btw, you can try 

type:{ integer: true} in capabilities
and something like the following:
 
validValues: {
  yourFieldName: {
    numberRange: {
      min: 10,
      max: 100
   } 
  }
}
Kind Regards,

There's no way to override limits and keep arrows to increase/decrease values.
