How can i display a text type (string) in a tile power bi dashboard with streaming dataset?

Hi guys, I currently am developing a dashboard in real time with streaming dataset, from my python script I post the data into the dataset for real time visualization, and I ran into the problem that i cannot display in my dashboard a text type (string. Example: Milling_CNC). I tried to use card visual, but it only displays numbers. Also tried to pin from report but cannot get the latest value pushed to streaming dataset. How can i solve this to show a text type (string) in a Tile.

hi @Jorge_Ortiz - you should be able assign text measures to Card visuals, following which you can pin the same to Dashboard.

Another option is to use a BLANK button and assign the measure to the Button text - following which you should be able to pin the same to a dashboard. Please see screenshots below:

Thank you so much for your answer, yesterday i was researching and I could figure out. All i had to do in my python code when i post the data into power bi real time dashboard... even if i declare the field type json as number if i send it a string it really shows the text i sent it in power bi.

 

For example

Temperature: Numer Type in power Bi.

 

In my python code:

Temperature: String Type.

 

And it shows it regardless the data type.

Hi @Jorge_Ortiz - Thanks for sharing the details - glad I could help!
