Horizontal Check box

Hi all, just wanted to check if we have any workaround placing checkbox slicers horizontally. The moment I arrange a checkbox slicer horizontally, it becomes a button slicer. Any guidance on custom visuals will also do.


My specific requirement is to have a series of check boxes on the top of the screen, with single selection. Appreciate your time.

@Anonymous Did you manage to find a solution for horizontal check box option ?



As far as I know, no existing custom visuals provide the feature that place checkbox slicer horizontally.

For the built-in slicer in Power BI Desktop, after you change the orientation of your slicer from the vertical default to horizontal, it becomes a selection bar rather than a checklist, this behavior is by design. And there is no method to place checkbox on the horizontal slicer, but you are able to take single selection by clicking on the bar in the horizontal slicer.
