Horizontal Radio Button

Hi Everyone,

Thanks in advance.


I want to have a radio button in a horizontal way. I want the items to be on the sides.


So, I dragged and droped a slicer. Then I switched on the "Single select" from the "Selection controls". After that I changed the "Orientation" from "Vertical" to "Horizontal", from the "General".


And as soon as I changed the "Orientation" from "Vertical" to "Horizontal", the slicer turns into buttons.


But I don't want any buttons. I want the UI in the form of "Horizontal Radio Button".


Can anyone tell me how this can be achieved in Power BI?

Hi @avinaash 

Currently this is not able to be achieved in Power BI. When selecting Horizontal Orientation for a slicer, it displays in button layout by design. You can create an idea about this feature at Ideas ( or vote for this similar idea: Microsoft Idea  · Slicer horizontal check boxes are not coming.


Additionally, if you want to save space in a report canvas by using a slicer with horizontal orientation, you could try below custom visual Chiclet Slicer


Items in this slicer can be more compact than a standard slicer.

@avinaash  I'm not sure what you mean by wanting the items to be on the sides? But as soon as you change orientation to horizontal it uses buttons - no way to have radio buttions all in the same row if that's what you're looking for. There may be a slicer in the custom visual marketplace that gets you closer to what you want?
