Trigger Focus Mode programmatically

Hello,

 

I have a custom visual where I display different content depending on the options.isInFocus property. I would like to add a way to trigger Focus Mode directly from the visual. I intend on adding a "button" via d3 that can potentially trigger the change.

 

Let me know if anyone has any suggestions.

 

Thanks,

Gabriel GH

Hi @gabereal,

If you've made the IVisualHost object (options.host) object from the constructor available to your visual, you can attach its switchFocusModeState method to a button's click event, which will trigger focus mode, e.g.:

  • switchFocusModeState(true) will maximise the visual
  • switchFocusModeState(false) will return the visual to its standard size

Regards,

Daniel

EDIT: Here's a quick proof-of-concept I recently posted on Twitter that I'm currently working on, that confirms what you're planning to do is possible (using the isInFocus property to render different content depending on view).

@dm-p ,

 

Thanks for the quick response. I was able to implement the functionality I wanted using the switchFocusModeState method.
