Color code in DAX

hi PBI, Can you help with coding a DAX with color code. Can I insert a color code into the DAX so it comes out in RED or Green visually

eg below

Change = if([Growth])>0,"Grow","Decline")

 

Growth   |   Change

0.12         |  Grow     <auttomatically green in color

-0.04        |  Decline       <automatically red in color

Color coding in DAX is not possible, but as a workaround you can create two metrics:

metric1=if([Growth])>0,"Grow","")

metric1=if([Growth])<=0,"Decline","")

 

Add two card visuals to the report and pull metric1 into 1 card and metric2 into the other card. Now, change the font color for 1st card(where metric1 has been used) to green and 2nd card(where metric2 has been used)  to red.

 

In this way, card 1 will show up only when [Growth])>0 and card 2 will show up only when [Growth])<=0

Re: Color code in DAX

Conditional Formatting was just added to the visuals recently (June Power BI).  It can't be used on the Text Entries but you could colour in the Growth column based on a range.

To do this, click on the Field in the Values area of your visualisations and select the down triangle to get the menu.  The menu has conditional formatting and Color Scales.

Hi @malcolmwun,

 

Current dax formula not support color code, I think you can post this requirement to ideas forum or use conditional formatting function to modify the display color.

Re: Color code in DAX

By creating "metric" do you mean adding new measure?

 

What do you mean by "pull metric1 into 1 card and metric2 into the other card"?

Yes add new measures.

 

I meant display measure1 on 1 card and measure2 on the other card.
