I need a table visual in R for wich the name of a specific colum must get a value from a measure. I'm new to R but until now I could manage to rename a colum and obtain a new name using this code:
colnames(dataset)[colnames(dataset)=="TotalBase"] <- "NewName"
So the original name "TotalBase" was transformed into the "NewName".
But how could I pass a measure value?
Is it possible to achieve something like this?:
colnames(dataset)[colnames(dataset)=="TotalBase"] <- Table[Measure]

Thank you for the recomended materials... There are good starting points in learning R.
Until then... I hope I will get enough votes on the Improved table visual - dynamic column names ideea so it would be implemented without needing R. 😁

Unfortunately, I'm not an expert of R, however I can recommend you to investigate R code of other visuals to look for the answer, as this one, for instance.

And thank you for your time. Unfortunately I'm not an R expert too... 🙄 and the recommended code is way to complex to find a "clue" to solve my problem.
Maybe Microsoft will publish some tutorials specifically designed for R & Power BI... 😉
Technically, there aren't so many Power BI aspects in R code for R visual. Only a couple of them is reading of format panel options and buckets to build dataset.
In fact, to write R visual, you should know only R language.
If you want to figure out how to work with dataset, you should learn R, may be this and that articles will be useful.
