Use of query parameter in DAX or visual

I am new to the Query Parameter.  It seems the query parameter is only for use in Power Query.   Is it possible to use the parameter in DAX or visual display , e.g. display the parameter selected in textbox.   Use parameter selected in measure calculation? 

 

Any answer or link to reference is appreciated.

@MikeKK , You can use what if , but that is limited to number or series. For text I doubt that. For text you can create an independent table and use the values in table in your measure/s.

The DAX side has it own parameters too, called What-If parameters.  Does this meet your need?
