keeping blank rows on in filtering by default?

 

I have a plot which I am filtering using a slicer. In that slicer there are blank rows that show up as "blank" in my slicer, those rows contain some visual background data. is there a way to keep those blank rows always selected and hidden from the user? Perhaps dax is needed?

Visual Control = IF(SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Type]) in DISTINCT('Slicer'[Type]) || SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Type]) = BLANK(),1,-1)

Possibly, you filter out blanks in your slicer and write a measure like:

 

Measure =
  VAR __Selected = SELECTEDVALUE('Table'[Slicer])
RETURN
  SUMX(FILTER(ALL('Table'),[Column] = __Selected || ISBLANK([Column]))

 

Obviously I have no idea exactly what you want so this is a concept I am conveying here.
