Show blank when nothing is selected in the slicers

Hello,

 

 

Capture.PNG

From the picture above, you can see that I have used 4 slicers to calculate different things i.e.e hours, billing amount and total amount.

 

If I do not select anything, it shows this value (refer to the picture above). These values are accumulated and mean absolutely nothing, they only mislead the user. Please if someone can tell me what to do? Is there any way/option I can use where my table shows blank or nothing if nothing is selected from the slicer? Thanks.

 

P.S New to Power BI, not that good with DAX.

Hi @Khan17 ,

Please set a new measure:

Please new a measure:

Measure1 =
CALCULATE ( IF ( ISFILTERED ( Table[Column] ), 1, 0 ), ALLSELECTED ( Table ) )

Add this measure to visual level filters, and set its value to 1.

In my case it works.

Measure1 =
CALCULATE ( IF ( ISFILTERED ( Table[Column] ), SELECTEDVALUE(Table1[Column1] ), "" ))

Thanks, @v-danhe-msft it worked for me.

Hi,

 

This works for me but if I "Select All", I get a blank again. Why is that?

You can try using the function hasonefilter with your slicers so if your slicers have a filter then do the calculations, otherwise return blank(). 

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/dax/hasonefilter-function-dax

 

something roughly like 

TotalHours = if(hasonefilter(ClientDescription[name]),Sum(TotalHours),Blank())

 

Nopes, does not work. Basically, if I do not select anything from the slicer, my table should show blank but it does not. As you can see from the picture, it shows an accumulated value of something. I do not need that value if I have not selected anything!

 

 

My slicers are interlinked with each other (if that helps), for example if you choose an individual's name, the other slicers would show the parts that are only associated with the individual.
