Problem with Drill-Down measure

Hello, the picture below shows the same diagramm in three different stages. The fist on ist the top level and the bottom two the drill-down level. The circle on the right always show how many percent of the values are blank which works perfectly fine for the top level. In the second level still the value of the top level but only for the specific drill-down is calculated which is always 100% since the top level had a value. This only changes if i manually select some of the values. Is there any way to directly make the second level display 66% without manually selecting anything?


The measure used for calculating the value is the following:



DDPctBlaBlank = 



It seems like if i do not explitly select something on the bottom level the measure always return the var Bla,

@BaltoLo Use ISINSCOPE function instead of ISFILTERED to find out if you are at the next level and return the value from measure accordingly. Read about ISINSCOPE here.

Thanks for the answere i tried InScope and Iscrossfiltered both.
On the top level i get the follwing response:


Iscrossfiltered is already 1 here and therefore returns the wrong value.

On the Drill-Down-Level:


Iscrossfiltered is correct the other two return the wrong value.


And if i explitly select something IsFiltered is also correct.


So basically InScope never works for me or I used it wrong. (I just swapped the IsFiltered in the original measure with the other two commands).
And the other two both only work in one of two cases.
