Accessing highlights array - supportsHighlight capability

Hi, 

 

I' developing custom visual and want to support highlights. Here is my capabilities.json code:

 

{
    "dataRoles": [
        {
            "displayName": "Row",
            "name": "row",
            "kind": "Grouping"
        },
        {
            "displayName": "Column",
            "name": "column",
            "kind": "Grouping"
        },
        {
            "displayName": "Tile Title",
            "name": "tileTitle",
            "kind": "Grouping"
        },
        {
            "displayName": "Color",
            "name": "color",
            "kind": "Grouping"
        },
        {
            "displayName": "Total Cost",
            "name": "totalCost",
            "kind": "Grouping"
        },
        {
            "displayName": "Total Gap",
            "name": "totalGap",
            "kind": "Grouping"
        },
        {
            "displayName": "Is Header",
            "name": "isHeader",
            "kind": "Grouping"
        },
        {
            "displayName": "AnalysisId",
            "name": "analysisId",
            "kind": "Grouping"
        }
    ],
    "dataViewMappings": [
        {
            "categorical": {
                "categories": {
                    "for": {"in" : "analysisId"}
                },
            "values": {
                        "select": [
                            { "bind": { "to": "totalCost" } },
                            { "bind": { "to": "totalGap" } },
                            { "bind": { "to": "isHeader" } },
                            { "bind": { "to": "color" } },
                            { "bind": { "to": "tileTitle" } },
                            { "bind": { "to": "column" } },
                            { "bind": { "to": "row" } }
                    ]   
                }
            }
        }
    ],
    "supportsHighlight": true,
    "suppressDefaultTitle": true
}

Question is how do I access highlights array? This is not helping, as:

 

            let highlights = dataView.categorical.categories[0].highlights;

throws an error:

"Property 'highlights' does not exist on type 'DataViewCategoryColumn'.". I have no idea how to make PowerBI use 

'DataViewValueColumn' type  instead of 'DataViewCategoryColumn'.

 

Can anyone point me in the right direction?

As shown in the documentation highlights array will be added to values: options.dataViews[0].categorical.values[0].highlights
