Copy custom visual

Hello,

 

I developed a custom visual and imported it into power bi desktop. When I add data to the custom visual it is not possible to copy it in the report. I tried to copy custom visuals from app source and there it works fine.

Do I have to add something in the code that this also works for self-developed visuals?

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards
Ferenc

Hi @ferenckleed ,

 

There're some considerations about copying a visual. Only native Power BI visuals and Certified Visuals can be copied.

Hi @v-stephen-msft,

 

thank you for the fast answer!
I have attached a screenshot that shows my custom visual and two times a stacked bar chart from Power BI. I can copy the charts from Power BI like the stacked bar chart over ctrl c and ctrl v without problems.
However, this is not possible with my custom visual, so i always have to insert it again 😕

Kind regards 
Ferenc
