Text field to show the selected filter

How could I show what multiple filters are selected on a report page?

 

There are date  filters and categorical filters.

 

I want the label to show everything that currenlty selected at al times.. and "ALL" when everything is selected.

@ThePowerBIQueen,

 

You may learn to use ISFILTERED Function inside the IF Function.

I would use a measure structured something like this:

 

Filters Selected =
IF (
    ISFILTERED ( MyTable[MyColumn] ),
    CONCATENATEX ( FILTERS ( MyTable[MyColumn] ), MyTable[MyColumn], ", " ),
    "ALL"
)

The reason for using FILTERS is because it returns direct filters on the specified column, as opposed to VALUES which would return the values visible in a column incorporating cross-filtering from other columns.

Must have missed the actual solution somehow.  No doubt this is great advice, but something a bit more detailed and specific might actually be helpful.

Re: Text field to show the selected filter

Thank you for sharing such an elegant solution.

 

Can you think of an equally elegant solution to incorporate an "All Except" rule? For example, I could have a filter with upto 30 different objects, and it could be I want to include all other than 2 of them. In this case it would be preferential to have the measure return "All Except AAA and BBB".

 

What do you think?

@Agreenwood

Something along these lines

Filters Selected (All Except version) =
IF (
    ISFILTERED ( MyTable[MyColumn] ),
    VAR ExcludedValues =
        EXCEPT ( ALL ( MyTable[Column] ), FILTERS ( MyTable[MyColumn] ) )
    RETURN
        "All Except " & CONCATENATEX ( ExcludedValues, MyTable[MyColumn], ", " ),
    "ALL"
)

This would return "All Except AAA, BBB, CCC,..." without an "and" between the last two items.

To include an "and" between the last two items would require a bit more logic: concatenating all but the last excluded item, followed by "and <last item>". Post back if you need help on that aspect.

 

Regards,

Owen
