disabling interaction using dax

Hi All,

 

I'm using several measures and displaying them in Card Visual, on the same page have also several slicers.

 

Do you know how I can do to disable the interaction between my slicer and my card using DAX in my measures?

 

Thanks

@nkasdali ,

 

I'm afraid dax can't disable interaction between visuals, ALL() function can only remove the filters in the filter context in dax expression. You need to use "visual interaction" in the format pane.

Use context changers like ALL(table), ALLEXCEPT(table, table[col1]), etc to escape the impact of slicers on measures.
For example, measure = CALCULATE ( SUM (table[Column]), ALL (table) ) will always result in the total sum of table[column] regardless of the context created by the current slicer selection.

Hi @JarroVGIT 

I tried All, Allexpect ! but didn't work. You can see in the profile AAS is executing a DAX calculation on my measure when selecting a value in my slicer.

 

Knowing that I have 22 measures in 22 cards, my aim is to avoid to send useless queries to my AAS.

 

It works well by disabling the interaction in the "Format" view but want to do it using DAX.

You can't, I am sorry. I see what you are trying to achieve. Upon changing the datamodel context by selecting a slicer, you don't want all measures to reevaluated if they aren't impacted. However, this is not how PowerBI works. When selecting a slicer, your datamodel is reevaluated and so are all your measures. You can't disable this behavior in DAX and can only change interaction from the Edit Interactions button in PBI Desktop.
Hope this answers your question,
