How to create a custom visualization in visual studio?

Hey,

 

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: How to create a custom visualization in visual studio?

Hi Nicolae,

 

Sachin has created a nice tutorial on getting started and this is available on Youtube - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-gtxy5vJ6MI

 

The documentation is rapidly evolving at the moment and you can be forgiven for not immediately finding what you need in order to progress - I think there's also some assumed knowledge in certain areas, but stick with it, you'll get there.

 

Oh, just seen as I've been writing this that you posted around 3 weeks ago. How are you getting on now...?
