Cannot generate custom visual until all format options are set

I'm new to coding Power BI custom visuals. I have created a simple visual following the documentation available (which is very limited). I'm testing the visual on Power BI service and it looks fine. The only problem is I have to set or change all the options in the Format pane for the visual to show up. I'm setting default values for the options ad they show the same when I open the Format pane. But still, I have to change them all for the visual to work. I'm I missing anything? Please help!!

Re: Cannot generate custom visual until all format options are set

@v-viig I found the solution for the initial problem. I used if (options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects) check and it works fine now. I have a new issue. There is a "Revert to default" button in the format options. How to get make it work? 
Note: I'm not using settings.ts. I'm initializing all the format options values in the constructor in visual.ts and assigning them in the enumerateObjectInstances function.

@satishr,

 

Create a new visual project with the latest API version, and then check "src/settings.ts" in it.

Re: Cannot generate custom visual until all format options are set

Thanks for the reply v-chuncz. Just setting the values for each format options in settings.ts doesn't work. These values should be loaded to the visual in visual.ts and I'm not able to do it.

Re: Cannot generate custom visual until all format options are set

@satishr Could you please describe the issue a bit deeper?

Are you changing the color but it returns to the default? Is that correct?
