How to highlight SelectedValue in Line chart?

Hello community,


I have a line chart with [Date] and average of [Sales]. 

I want to highlight Selected value in line chart. But right now when I select any value , line chart disapears ( filters only selection ) and only shows selected value.


Can anyone help me?

Hi @Akbarov ,


Power BI cannot highlight a value through the slicer in line chart.You can try changing colors dynamically using conditional formatting in a column chart.

1. create a disconnected table as slicer:

Table = CALENDAR(MIN(Sheet2[Date]),MAX(Sheet2[Date]))

2. create a measure and apply to conditional formatting.

Measure = IF(MAX(Sheet2[Date])>=MIN('Table'[Date])&&MAX(Sheet2[Date])<=MAX('Table'[Date]),"red","black")

@Akbarov , for that you need to have a slicer of the independent table and then create a measure


if(max(Dimension[COlumn]) = selectedvalue(IndTable[Column]), "Red", blank())


Create a bar visual and use that in conditional formatting using the field value option.  Convert that to line
