Re: 2017 October Update:- How to create toggle buttons? Here are sample toggle buttons for your use!

Disclaimer: I am not a graphic designer, as you can tell, but...

 

If anyone needs a couple of toggle buttons (left/right) please feel free to use these which I created in Photoshop.

 

Any suggestions on improvements are welcome.

 

All the best,

 

Paul.

How I create a Toggle

The trick here is to

1. Upload two images - Toggle left/right (see the reply above)

2. Turn on/off the visibility of the two images - thereby creating a Toggle effect.

3. Use two Bookmarks - as two saved scenarios - and click and jump between the two Bookmarks.

Toggle button sample.pbix (download) - link to reply above

 

1: The Image

Menu: Home, Click the 'Image' button

1. Upload a normal image (see the reply above)

2. Change Link to On.

3. Change Back to Bookmark

4. Select the bookmark to use (we create them below)

 

2: Selection pane - toogle image visibility

Menu: View, Click the 'Selection Pane'

Toggle what to show in the 'Selection plane'.

Next, we will save that scenario under the Bookmark pane.

 

3. Bookmark pane - save two bookmarks

Menu: View, Click the 'Bookmark Pane'

Set scenario 1 and save it as Bookmark1

Set scenario 2 and save it as Bookmark2

Re: 2017 October Update:- How to create toggle buttons?

Hi everyone,

Having played around and implemented the "toggle" feature, I've come up with an issue (I have reported it in the issues forum but have little hopes it will get noticed). 

 

Imagine you have a page in a report with visuals which you can "toggle" between as we have been discussing. Now include a drill through field. Go to another page where the drill through field is present an apply the drill through. Up comes the page with toggle options and drillthrough filter correctly applied. BUT, when you trigger the "toggle", alas the drill through filter disappears. And indeed disappears completely if you toggle back and forth. Can anyone else reproduce this?

 

There is of course a logic behind all this, because when you set up both bookmarks you are saving the visual and filter settings. The drill through filter is respected on the "toggle landing page", but when you activate the toggle, I guess it reverts to the saved settings defined in the bookmark.

 

It would be great if the drill through filter were respected when toggling back and forth. 

 

I would really appreciate if anyone could prove me wrong!

 

Regards,

 

Paul.

Re: 2017 October Update:- How to create toggle buttons?

@mdaamirkhanThank you for offering to help!

 

Here is your file, but modified to include two pages: "Drill Through" (DT) and "Toggle between table and Matrix" (TBTM).

 

Example of Drill through to "toggle page"

 

If you go to the DT page, select a channel by right clicking and choosing drill through to TBTM, the TBTM page opens up with the drill through filter coming from the DT page (based on the field selected). However, when you toggle to the other visuals, the Drill Through filter disappears, and indeed it is also missing if you toggle back.

 

What I am saying is that if you have a "toggle page" as a drill through from other pages to dive deeper into data, the ideal behaviour would be that the drill through filter be kept when "toggling back and forth". But it doesn't.

 

Hope my explanation isn't too confusing!.

 

Thanks again!

 

Regards,

 

Paul.
