Unable to read default color object

 

In my capabilities.json I defind an object called color. I'm trying to define it inside my custom visual using : 

             
 
startingColor: getValue<string>(options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects,'colors','startingColor',"#111111"),
 
 But I'm unable to read the default color, since the visual is not running untill I define a new color in the styling pane.

Re: Unable to read default color object

Hello @skizofre3e,

 

Power BI doesn't allow to get default color. However, you might define your own default color to return it to Power BI as a default.

You just need to apply your default color if there's no color in the metadata.

Re: Unable to read default color object

Can you please let me know how to do it? How can I check whether the metadata available or not?

Can you share implementation of getValue function that you use to get color from the metadata?

Re: Unable to read default color object

I figured it out. Thanks. I'm using the condition if (options.dataViews[0].metadata.objects) to check whether the user has made any changes in the format pane or not.
