How do I display a data grid in PowerBI

Hi All,

 

I want to display a simple data grid in PowerBI and format the cells red for TestResults=Pos and green for TestResults=Neg.  Ultimately the data would look something like this (from MS Excel):

 

  TestGrid.png

My data looks like this (just create a Blank Query and paste this in)

= Table.FromRows({{"A", 1, "Pos"} , {"A", 2, "Pos"},{"A", 4, "Neg"} , {"A", 6, "Pos"},{"A", 12, "Pos"} , {"A", 24, "Pos"},{"A", 48, "Neg"} , {"A", 64, "Pos"},{"B", 1, "Neg"} , {"B", 2, "Pos"},{"B", 4, "Neg"} , {"B", 6, "Neg"},{"B", 12, "Pos"} , {"B", 24, "Pos"},{"B", 48, "Pos"} , {"B", 64, "Pos"}}, {"PatientID ", "StudyDay", "TestResults"})

The Table visualization appears to me to sum/count my data in columns based on items in the Values.  

 

I can get a partial solution if I create a "helper" column (TestNum ) that is 1 for Pos and 0 for Neg, then I use the Matrix visualization with the rows=PatientID, columns=StudyDay, and Values=TestNum (aggregation =sum) but I cannot conditionally format the cells to be Red/Green 

 

= Table.FromRows({{"A", 1, "Pos",1} , {"A", 2, "Pos",1},{"A", 4, "Neg",0} , {"A", 6, "Pos",1},{"A", 12, "Pos",1} , {"A", 24, "Pos",1},{"A", 48, "Neg",0} , {"A", 64, "Pos",1},{"B", 1, "Neg",0} , {"B", 2, "Pos",1},{"B", 4, "Neg",0} , {"B", 6, "Neg",0},{"B", 12, "Pos",1} , {"B", 24, "Pos",1},{"B", 48, "Pos",1} , {"B", 64, "Pos",1}}, {"PatientID ", "StudyDay", "TestResults","TestNum"})

I am pretty flexible in how the visualization ultimatly ends up but how would I accomplish this?

Re: How do I display a data grid in PowerBI

Something like this: 

 

Notice that Patient C does not data for certain days and there is one Unk (Day 2 of Patient A).

 

 

= Table.FromRows({
    {
        "A","A1",

Re: How do I display a data grid in PowerBI

Though it has Known Limitations (see https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-service-r-visuals/#known-limitations), an R visual can do it.  See below for sample R script (12 lines without comments and blanks) and output.

 

library(ggplot2)    # Needed for ggplot
library(ggthemes)   # has a clean theme for ggplot2
library(tidyr)      # provide 'complete' function for empty heatmap cells

#Convert the (integer) StudyDay to a factor to avoid gaps in the X axis
dataset$StudyDay=with(dataset,factor(StudyDay))

#Fill missing data values, to avoid blank cells in the heatmap
dataset <- dataset %>% complete(PatientID, StudyDay)

# Avoid having to reference dataset$ each time in function calls
attach(dataset)

#Plot the dataset with TestResults to set the fill colour
ggplot(dataset, aes(x=StudyDay, y=PatientID, fill=TestResults)) +

#geom_tile to present as grid per https://www.rstudio.com/wp-content/uploads/2015/12/ggplot2-cheatsheet-2.0.pdf
  geom_tile(color="black", size=0.1) +

#Set the fill colours for TestResults
  scale_fill_manual(values = c("Pos" = "green", "Neg" = "red", "Unk" = "blue")) +

#Set square tiles
  coord_equal() +

#Apply tidy Tufte theme with no axis ticks
  theme_tufte(base_family="arial", ticks=FALSE) +

#Order by reverse PatientID
  scale_y_discrete(limits = rev(levels(PatientID)))

Re: How do I display a data grid in PowerBI

On you aggregation field, change it to MAX instead of SUM, click drop down arrow, and in conditional formatting, do somethign like this:

Hope it will work.

Re: How do I display a data grid in PowerBI

That seems to work...  

 

So, this is really a kludge for me (because there is a 1/0 in the data grid), I honestly would rather have a red + and a green - for Positive and Negative

 

 

I had thought of trying a scatter plot with custom markers but I cannot seem to get anywhere with that

Re: How do I display a data grid in PowerBI

I don;t think there is any solution at this point, may be you want to look if something available in custom visuals.

Nothing there (I had checked previously).  I suppose I could try to do it with R but that seems like a lot of extra work.

Re: How do I display a data grid in PowerBI

Hi All,

 

I'll try @Vvelarde's solution but in the meantime I was able to use the Enhanced Scatterplot (https://powerbi.microsoft.com/en-us/documentation/powerbi-service-tutorial-enhancedscatter/) and was able to get something close to what I wanted.

 

I'd like the icons bigger

Re: How do I display a data grid in PowerBI

Hi All,

 

@Vvelarde's solution works for a binary system (1's and blanks).

 

My data is constantly being added so some of the PatientIDs/StudyDay do not have data, others have Positive, Negative, and Unknown.  When I use @Vvelarde's method, you cannot hide the values of the text by changing the color because the text can only have one color.

 

I am not sure where to go at this point...
