Retrieve the selected Filter values in a Custom Visual on the same page.

Hi All,


Is there a way to consume the selected Filter values of a Chiclet filter or any other Filter visual inside a Custom Visual on the same page ?


This should be irrespective of whether the filtered records are returned for those selected values in the dataset.  

For example, if I select value A and value B in the Chiclet (or any other Filter visual), and if only value A is returned in the filtered dataset, I still need both the selected values to perfom some business logic in my Custom Visual. 


Thanks & Regards,





Please, try to read the following property inside "update" method


Kind Regards,

Hey Evgenii, Thanks for your reply !


Unfortunately this.options.jsonFilters returns blank for me inside the update function. 


Based on replies on other threads, I guess creating a Measure using the DAX function ALLSELECTED is one way out. 

I was able to get the correct value in a simple Visual using this calculated Measure. 


However, still facing issues consuming this Measure in my other Custom Visual where adding this measure in the capabilities.json as a Measure disrupts my otherwise working categorical data model. 


Thanks & Regards,
