registerOnSelectCallback not firing

Hi,

 

Using the information provided on Handling Visual Selection I did successfully implement cross-selection in my custom Visual using the SelectionBuilder and SelectionManager objects. Since all of the code is working fine I also wanted to implement support for Bookmarks. I added the following line of code to the constructor of the custom Visual

 

this.selectionManager.registerOnSelectCallback( () => {
    console.log("registerOnSelectCallback");
});

Next I tried to highlight some data points in my Visual while each time adding a new Bookmark. If I then go back to the Bookmarks  it never seems to work as there is no console.log in the output. Also adding a debugger; statement does not cause the debugger to break.

 

Is there anything that needs to be done to get Bookmarks working? 

 

Thanks

Re: registerOnSelectCallback not firing

If you are working with the Developer Visual, this is a known issue that Microsoft says will be fixed in a future version of the Custom Visual SDK.

 

For me, I compiled my visual to a package, added it as a custom visual, and finished my bookmark implementation that way.  Yes, performing many iterations watching console messages.  It's actually not that hard to implement support for bookmarks once you understand how they operate and whether your visual does selection or filtering etc.

 

Good luck,

 

Chris

Re: registerOnSelectCallback not firing

By the way, this is my implementation in the constructor:

 

constructor(options: VisualConstructorOptions) {
            this.target = options.element;
            this.host = options.host;
            this.selectionManager = options.host.createSelectionManager();      
            this.selectionIds = [];       
            this.currentSelected = [];
            
            this.selectionManager.registerOnSelectCallback((ids: ISelectionId[]) => {                       
                    this.currentSelected = ids;                    
                }
            );                           
        }
