Colour plot background of line chart on a gradient

Hi,

 

I have a line chart showing revenue growth year on year.

 

I want to colour the plot area background conditionally.

 

I.e. everything in the background below 0% e.g. negative growth I want the background to be red and for everything above 0% e.g. positive growth I want the background to be green,

 

I made an image with the green/red and put that as the background but as I change the filters the 0% isn't always in the same place which means the image in the background doesn't fit. 

 

Is there a way to do this dynamically?

 

Thanks,

 

O

Hi  @PowerBIWhat ,

 

Not very clear what you mean... Can you describe the result you want in the form of pictures, we can help you better.

If convenient, can you share sample data and sample output in table format? Or a sample pbix after removing sensitive data.

 

Best Regards,

Liu Yang
