How to create a custom visualization in visual studio?
I've been struggling, for a couple of days now, to understand the architecture behind the custom visualization project available on github. I've looked for turorials on how to create custom visualizations but could only find the one Sachin Patney created in the Dev Tool.
I know I have to create a testVisualization.ts in visuals folder and a testVisualization.capabilities.ts in capabilties folder but what should I do next in order to play with my visualization in the playground?
Can someone create a tutorial on how to create fx. a table visualization in visual studio, add it to the playground and perhaps also export it in .pbiviz file??
RE: i have find the following link that show creating Visuals using powerbi app. not VS
PBI is light weight comparing with VS i believe
Content of the video is deprecated so I wouldn't waste too much time on this one.
To be honnest with you. there aren't too many released tutorials and videos on how to create Power BI Visuals at this stage. You also have to be careful as a lot still deal with deprecated content, as the one you mentioned.
Though you can stll have a look at Ted Pattison video:
That's over an hour though you'll find a segment explaining the basics of creating Power PB Visuals with Visual Studio Code and Power BI Visuals CLI tool. Ted has also provided a Github link at the end of the video in credits giving you access to source code used in his presentation.
I'd say it's a good basic. If you're already comfortable with TypeScript and have worked with visualisation libraries like d3.js, then you can still have a look at what's done on Github [just enter PowerBI Visuals in search box .]
The official tutorial describes how to use Power BI Custom Visuals API. Documentaion does not desribe specific dev steps as developers can use lots of different frameworks such as d3, React, Three.js, etc.
