Revert to default option doesn't work in my custom visual

I have developed a simple custom visual following the documentation available. I have created few format options in the capabilities.ts file and have assigned values to them in visual.ts using variables. I want to know how to get the "Revert to default" button to work which is present in the format pane. Note: I haven't used settings.ts. Here is the sample of my code.

Capabilities.ts

----------------

 

"objects": {
"kpiName": {
"displayName": "KPI Name",
"properties": {
"name": {
"displayName": "Name",
"type":{ "text": true}
},
"color": {
"displayName": "Color",
"type": {
"fill": {
"solid": {
"color": true
}
}
}
},
"fontSize":{
"displayName": "Font size",
"type": {"formatting": {"fontSize": true}}
}
}
}

}

 

Visual.ts:

---------


module powerbi.extensibility.visual {
"use strict";
export class Visual implements IVisual {
private kpiName: string;
private kpiColor: string;
private kpiTextSize: string;
private kpiFont: string;

 

constructor(options: VisualConstructorOptions) {

this.kpiName = "KPI Name";
this.kpiColor = "#444444";
this.kpiTextSize = "20";

}

 

 public update(options: VisualUpdateOptions) {

if (options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects)
{
if (options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects["kpiName"] && options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects["kpiName"]["name"]) {this.kpiName = options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects["kpiName"]["name"].toString();}
if (options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects["kpiName"] && options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects["kpiName"]["color"]) {this.kpiColor = options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects["kpiName"]["color"]["solid"]["color"].toString();}
if (options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects["kpiName"] && options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects["kpiName"]["fontSize"]) {this.kpiTextSize = options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects["kpiName"]["fontSize"].toString();}
}

}

 

public enumerateObjectInstances(options: EnumerateVisualObjectInstancesOptions): VisualObjectInstanceEnumeration {
let objectName = options.objectName;
let objectEnumeration: VisualObjectInstance[] = [];

switch (objectName) {
case 'kpiName':
objectEnumeration.push({
objectName: objectName,
properties: {
name: this.kpiName,
color: this.kpiColor,
fontSize: this.kpiTextSize,
},
selector: null
});
break;

};

return objectEnumeration;
}

Re: Revert to default option doesn't work in my custom visual

You use single variable to keep the default value and current value.

That means, you should move default values to new variables and use them if and only if the property is undefined in metadata.

 

this.kpiName = options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects["kpiName"] && options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects["kpiName"]["name"]
    ? this.kpiName = options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects["kpiName"]["name"].toString()
    : "KPI Name";
