Color Change in Line Chart based on Slicer Value

Hi Team, 


Here, the requirement is to change the color of line or somehow we need to differentiate in color in line chart by using the numeric slicer value. 

Expecting an output like below. 



Now, I achieved above by hard coding the dax value instead of dynamic selection based on week number n above slicer. 

Dax formula ( calculated column ) = 

IF ((FE_DDSCALLRATE[Der_Deliver_YYYYQ_No]) > 20182,"OutofWarranty","Warranty")
My table will look like below..
Deliver Quarter Operating week
2018-1                   1
2018-2                   2
etc.... ,  Please help me to achieve this dynamically. Also, see below challenges while exploring all the options in power bi. 
1.  Conditional formatting will not work in the Line chart. 
2.  Legend will not accept Measure, so we need to create a calculated column to split the line by using a legend
Please let me know if you need any more inputs from my end.

Hi Peter_Jeyaraj_l

As I know, for line chart, you need to use static legend value to change the line color, so workaround are like below

You could create two meausres for line chart based on slicer value like below

more than max = var  maxselcet=CALCULATE(MAX(slicer[Date]), ALLSELECTED(slicer[Date]))  return if(MIN('table'[Date])>maxselcet,  BLANK(),SUM('table'[Column 2]))
less than max = var  maxselcet=CALCULATE(MAX(slicer[Date]), ALLSELECTED(slicer[Date]))  return if(MIN('table'[Date])>maxselcet, SUM('table'[Column 2]), BLANK())


Or you could create a clustered column chart, then create a measure like below

Measure = var  maxselcet=CALCULATE(MAX(slicer[Date]), ALLSELECTED(slicer[Date]))  return if(MIN('table'[Date])>maxselcet, "#50C7C7","#CCA3E3")

use this in column chart's colditional format like below, then click line chart, it will change like below
