Visio custom visual loses focus of current node

I have created a visio custom visual in the latest version of power BI (Sept 2017). Rendering the diagram is fine and I can select a node within the diagram to filter other visuals on the page but as soon as I click on anything else on the power bi page, the selected node in the viso diagram is lost so my filtering of the other visuals is also lost - can this be fixed please?

I raised this with visio team (tellvisio@microsoft.com) but there response is this is down to PowerBI:

" For your first query on focus getting lost, this is a Power BI behavior and Visio custom visual is not playing any role here."

from roshah@microsoft.com

 

Hope you can address this as the custom vis would be a great asset if it can be used to navigate/filter a dataset.

Thanks.

Hi @Frampers,

 

The latest Power BI desktop version is 2.51.4885.581. Based on my test, when I select a node in a visio diagram, the table visual is filtered correspondingly. If I click on any other blank area in this report page, the selection isn't losing. 

 

In your scenario, which detail step you perform " as soon as I click on anything else on the power bi page"? Please try the latest desktop version 2.51.4885.581 and try again.

Hi Qiuyun Yu,

 

I'm using 2.51.4885.701.

I'm trying to test it again but now having problems connecting to the visio diagram. When I open the power BI project I get the Sharepoint Sign In prompt on the custom visual but then a blank dialog appears as shown in the attached. Do I need to raise this as a separate issue?

Seems to be fixed having moved to November 2017 release of Power BI desktop.

But now have another problem. I have imported a visio diagram that contains 420 nodes - when I zoom in to see the labels on the nodes, they are out of focus - snippet image attached.Large node diagram out of focus in Visio Custom Viz.PNG

Hello @Frampers,

 

Will you be able to share your Visio file with me at tellvisio[at]microsoft[dot]com? You can strip off any confidential data if you want, but please try to retain the shapes. I am basically looking for data around number of shapes in the file, in addition to the 420 nodes that you mentioned.

 

Thanks,

Hi Shakun,

 

Do you want the visio file or the Excel template the data is loaded from?

This is now fixed. I upgraded the Power BI Desktop (there is a second release for November, I went from 64-bit version 2.52.4921.581 to 2.52.4921.682) and focus now works when zooming in on large networks. Thanks!
