How to use Bookmarks on the same page ?

Hi,

I have a set of visuals on a single page. Instead of slicer I want to use buttons to display some visuals and hide the others.

For Example : Let's say I have sale of fruits and vegetables. I have put 3 buttons : Select All , fruits and vegetables.

By default the sale for both fruits and vegetables are displayed. So when user selects "select all" it displays both F & V.
So I make a bookmark call "Select All" to bookmark this state on this page.

 

Then, for "Fruits" buuton,  I hide visuals related to vegtables thru the use of selection pane and make a bookmark called "Fruits" to save this state on the same page.

Problem : The veggie visuals that I hid under selection pane is still hidden when i click on the "Select All" Bookmark.

 

How do I fix this ?

Hi @Akshay_Kinge ,

I use bookmarks all the time.  You just have to make the state visible/not visible, and then make sure that you update the button.

  1. Both visuals visible - update the all button
  2. Fruits visible, veges invisible - update the fruit button
  3. Veges visible, fruits invisible - update the veges button 

 

A lot of times I just stack them one on top of the other, and it looks like just the values are changing if the visuals are the same size and location.

Ok i actually created a sample pbi file containing to hide/display the fruits and veggies example to verify the steps you mentioned. And it works perfectly.

But however the problem in my actual workplace still persists.
I have 6 dials , 3 of them (A,B,C) show values coming from location 1 and 3 of em (D,E,F) coming from 2 .
Now each transparent button is placed over and grouped with the dial , so when user clicks on the dial , it takes them to a separate page to see more info about that dial value.

Is that the reason why it is not working because , there is a button placed on the dial ?

Hi @Akshay_Kinge ,
It sounds elegant, and a transparent button should not be a problem.  So that sounds different than the original issue.  Please describe what you expect to happen and what happens.  Does the dial cover the button? If so it may be the layer order which you would find on the selection pane.  Or is it when you return from the other page? I assume you use a button to return to the original page, in which case you need to be sure that the state of the return is how you wish to see it.  I am starting work now, but will check back as I am able today.  Maybe a picture, or a listing of the steps as I did above.  
Let me know if you have any questions.
