Line Chart - Color series by field value

Is there a way to format series based on a field value for Line Charts?


I have a data set with many, many possible series depending on what slicer values are selected (so formatting individually is not a good option).  Each series is associated with a label and a hex code color.  I'd like to dynamically color each line based on the hex code values, like how other visuals let you do Data Colors / fx / Format By / Field Value.  That doesn't seem to be an option in the Line Chart's formatting, and I'm wondering if there's a workaround.  


I've made a simplified example with fake data and a fake graph of what I want.  Here's an example file.  In the example file, I've manually colored each series, but in my actual data that's not feasible since there's a huge pool of possible series that would get updated...  I need a way to link it to the Color field.  






I'm very new to R, but open to an R Script Visual solution if that's an option.

Hi @ELW ,


According to your needs, some visual can customize the color series by creating a measure in the Format-->Data colors. Here is a related link. I hope to help you solve the problem.Conditional formatting by field value in Power BI - Power BI Docs
