Custom Visual Text Alignment Formatting Option

In the MS Line Chart visual, in the formatting options under "Title" there is a formatting option for alignment, showing three icons for Left, Center and Right alignment.

 

How can I use these in my own visual? Is there an option that I can use in my capabilities.json file or should I use the enumerateObjectInstances() function for this?

Hi @WouterBo,

You do this in capabilities.json using the type property:

"type": {
    "formatting": {
        "alignment": true
    }
}

Values exposed by these icons for your property when you enumerate them:

  • left
  • center
  • right

If you want to see an example in-context, here's a direct link to one of my visual's capabilities with it in there.

Regards,

Daniel
