Text box with action/button with text

I have been utilising different buttons and bookmarks in my report to provide an app like experience for report users. Some buttons like the home icon are simple and self explanatory however there are some where I need to use a textbox for it, see menu page below for example. Currently the only way I know how to make this work is to have a text box with a background and then put a shape over it with no background or line with the action assigned. It would be ideal if I could achieve this with 1 visual!

 

Cheers,

 

Josh

Re: Text box with action/button with text

Hey,

 

basically I'm using Affinity Designer to create "images" that contain text.

 

Maybe this gives you an idea.

Hi @JoshSHardscape,

 

You can use Normal Slicer filter, just create a data table using Enter Data in Power BI Desktop, then create a Slicer and change the Slicer format > General > Orientation to Horizontal, and that should do that job.

 

But the only thing is, this will work as Slicer not as a bookmark. If you need bookmars then you need to use the Buttons only, becuase they have Action property.

Re: Text box with action/button with text

I think if I had to go this far then it would be easier to make these images in paint or something and just assign the action to them? Although I was hoping to keep it all in BI and not have to hop into other programs to help out!
