Well, I have to take some my previous post back... Apparently, I accidentally published a version of my report containing one of my extensively-remodeled-in-order-to-cope-with-the-sandboxing-issues versions of my visual, instead of the pre-sandboxing version. The pre-sandboxing one still does not work...
I have been using custom visuals in a number of reports. Chiclet Slicer, Scrolling Text Bar, Card with States, they were ALL working fine at the beginning of the week. Now none of them are working. they function fine on my desktop Power BI I can author and format the visualisations using the default format.
The visualisation I am using are all from the power BI visualisations gallery and are not modified. I am not a developer just an author of reports for our business. I have used these in a number of reports and now the reports are rendered useless.
NOT IMPRESSED! The Snapshot below are Chiclet Slicers with nothing in them (they are fully funtional on my desktop but useless when published.......
Can someone PLEASE explain in easy terms why this was fine on monday 9th May and screwed today 13th May.
I am testing this platform with view to going corporate. pretty useless way to promote your product when things just stop working on published reports.
All ours are dead as well. Looks like a change was made yesterday that has messed up custom visuals as well as Pin Live Page dashboards. Pinning individual custom visualisations works okay.
None of our custom visuals are working with Power BI embedded, can you confirm a) when they will be working or b) what I need to do to make them work....
I am trying to get a custom visual to open another report in a new window. The sandboxing is stopping this from happening, anyone found a solution to this?
The sandboxVisualEnable=false flag doens't work
Power BI Custom Visuals sandboxing doesn't allow that.
I suppose that you will be able to open any external links once API 1.8 is released. This API is going to bring hyperlink API.
Microsoft Power BI Custom Visuals
@lukaszp is there any way where we can set the configuration to load iframe for custom visual.
Currently, I am working on a custom visual Datepicker where on click of input, it opens a Datepicker. If my container is small, my Datepicker hides within the wall of the container (limited to sandbox iframe container).
It should work similarly as "Date Slicer" which opens Datepicker outside container area freely and second, doesn't load any iframe if inspect it in the browser.

@bashirs How to achieve it from code or in pbiviz 3+ versions. Would it work once I create a package and import in PowerBI Desktop?
Please see this GitHub thread for what I want to achieve.
