Custom Visual, when I add table binding, the custom formatting disappears.

I use API 2.3.0

 

I created table bind
{
    "dataRoles": [
        {
            "displayName": "Category",
            "name": "Category",
            "kind": "GroupingOrMeasure"
        },
        {
            "displayName": "Value1",
            "name": "Value1",
            "kind": "GroupingOrMeasure"
        },
        {
            "displayName": "Value2",
            "name": "Value2",
            "kind": "GroupingOrMeasure"
        }
    ],
    "objects": {
        "category": {
            "displayName": "Category ",
            "properties": {
                "show": {
                    "displayName": "Turn on/off",
                    "type": {
                        "bool": true
                    }
                },    
                "fontColor": {
                    "displayName": "Font Color",
                    "description": "Select font color",
                    "type": {
                        "fill": {
                            "solid": {
                                "color": true
                            }
                        }
                    }
                }
            }
        }       
    },
    "dataViewMappings": [
        {
            "table": {
                "rows": {
                    "select": [
                        {
                            "for": {
                                "in": "Category"
                            }
                        },                
                        {
                            "for": {
                                "in": "Value1"
                            }
                        },
                        {
                            "for": {
                                "in": "Value2"
                            }
                        }
                    ],
                    "dataReductionAlgorithm": {
                        "sample": {
                            "count": 2000
                        }
                    }
                }
            }
        }
    ]
}
 When I add custom visual to the board, I see custom formatting. But when select some field, custom formatting disappears.
The general format is always available.
 
When I bind via category, everything works correctly. But I need to work with table now.
 
Function enumerateObjectInstances has default code
 const settings: VisualSettings = this.visualSettings || 
                                         VisualSettings.getDefault() as VisualSettings;
        var visualObjects: VisualObjectInstanceEnumerationObject = <VisualObjectInstanceEnumerationObject> VisualSettings.enumerateObjectInstances(settings, options);
        return visualObjects;
 In update method I add 
let dataView = options.dataViews[0] || {} as powerbi.DataView;
this.visualSettings = VisualSettings.parse<VisualSettings>(dataView);
 
 
What I miss?
Also what is the best way to parse data bind?
I have noticed that sometimes metadata.object is not displayed, why?

Re: Custom Visual, when I add table binding, the custom formatting disappears.

Hello,

 

It is necessary to analyze the source code to make some suggestion. Could you please share the repo link or send files to pbicvsupport@microsoft.com for analysis?

 

Thanks!

Re: Custom Visual, when I add table binding, the custom formatting disappears.

I can't help with the majority of what you're asking, but regarding your question about metadata.objects not always being present - in my experience, this is only populated if a property is different to its default value, i.e. modified by the end-user. If your visual has not have any properties modified from the defaults then this will be empty.

 

The framework will assume the default values (typically specified in your settings.ts) if this is not present for any objects defined. The following code in your post is handling that part:

 

const settings: VisualSettings = this.visualSettings || 
                                         VisualSettings.getDefault() as VisualSettings;

Re: Custom Visual, when I add table binding, the custom formatting disappears.

I found the problem, It was the cache issues.

Also, do you know where I can find full documentation about capabilities.json?
