.json and custom visuals with power bi theme possible?

Hi,

 

We have a .json theme file and can customise vast majority of properties of visuals which ship with power bi o.k e.g. background.

 

However, when try and set the propertries of a custom visual such as advance card as per below - no impact .eg. background property unchanged when import theme file unlike other visuals which change the background as expected.

 

Does anyone know if possible to use custom visuals in the .json theme file or not?

 

Just wondering if  possible to use custom visuals in the .json theme file? 

 

 

 

"advanceCard": {
"*": {
"labels": [{
"color": { "solid": { "color": "#063d73"}},
"fontSize": 14
}],
"background": [{

"show": true,
"transparency": 70,
"color": { "solid": { "color": "#Febe10" } }

}]
}
}

Re: .json and custom visuals with power bi theme possible?

Hi,

 

Thanks for answer.

 

Do you know if possible to set the colour of the conditions within this visual?

 

e.g would like to use if value = -1 then "#.....'

                                  if value = 0 then "#...'

                                  if value = 1  then '#..'

to colour code values shown our colour of green amber red rather than set manually?

                                         

Also is there some documentation anywhere which says the name of custom visuals to use?

 

We also use hierarchical slicer which I'm guessing may have name which not sure of for the local .json

 

Do you know name to use for this one? 

 

Thanks again.

Do you mean name of properties to change color?

 

If so, it depends on particular custom visual. Please ask author to share proper names.

Thanks for reply.

 

Meaning the name of the actual visual itself to use in the .json

 

e.g the custom ones seem to be suffixed with large numbers

 

Is there a list of the microsoft ones or somwhere can find the name to use in the .json as and when microsoft publish new custom visuals? 

 

e.g chiclet slicer one just started to use but not sure where could fin the number to suffix with this to set properties such as background colour vi athe .json.

We do not have documentation for this yet. It's on backlog.

 

For Chiclet Slicer you find name in the code on GitHub.
