I am trying to apply conditional formatting on a Text Field (in Rows) with a MATRIX Visual. IF the Text is Status yes or Status #1 then change color or font. This doesn’t seem possible unless it’s a table?
If Text Column = yes/1 for status then Bold/highlight
dataset has following fields available as well for reference
@powerbihelp87 , You can create a color measure . That return color
Color Date = var _min =minx(allselected(Date,Date[Year]) return Switch( true(), FIRSTNONBLANK('Date'[Year],year(TODAY()))-_min =0 ,"lightgreen", FIRSTNONBLANK('Date'[Year],year(TODAY()))-_min =0 ,"blue", "red") if(FIRSTNONBLANK(Table[Col1],"ABC") "ABC","green","red")
You can use that in conditional formatting after choosing the field option. and use this measure.
@powerbihelp87 , color measure needs to be used only in conditional formatting. There is no row formatting, you have to format all column using same measures
@amitchandak I do want the entire column to be formatted but in a matrix it is in the "rows" area even though it is a column. Once I try to click the field in the visualizations pane there is no option for conditional formatting in matrix. in a table the option is there
@ElisaT this is the question I asked, not sure if any of these answers will help you
With the conditional formatting, you can color only the values of rows with a particular status. You can also apply formats to column header too but not on the row header.
I'm finding a way to decorate rows header too. I think it is not possible right now. I hope in the future.
You can make a measure that evaluates the value in the status column and returns 0 or 1, and then set conditional formatting on that measure using a field value or rule in Color Scale. For example,
ColorMeasure = IF(SELECTEDVALUE(Table[Status])="yes",1,0)
And then make a color rule on the desired column for if it is >=1.

If this works for you, please mark it as the solution. Kudos are appreciated too. Please let me know if not.
Thanks @mahoneypat for looking into this. I am able to get this to work in a table but not a MAtrix Text Field. Do you know how I can get this to work for a MAtrix Text field? you cannot apply conditional formatting to a text in Matrix
