Only two slicer selection at a time

Hi,

I have the scenario to choose the slicer not more than two selection at a time.
Is this possible? In what way?

You can create a measure to show a text, sort of warning when users select more than 2 items from the slicer. This is the measure:

SelectionLimit = 
IF(
     ISCROSSFILTERED(financials[Product]) && COUNTROWS( VALUES( financials[Product] ) ) > 2 ,
     "Maximum 2 items",
     ""
)

@Umadhandapani  I am not sure about DAX measure, but you can use the custom visual to control the selection limit

@Umadhandapani  as far as I know either you can set to single selection or multi selection. I don't think there is an option to set selection limit. 

 

FYI: I hope you already know you can multi select by holding "ctrl"

Is there any other visual to use the concept?
Or using any measures?
