I don't see why it should not work... I agree that syntax editor isn't the best in detecting this new syntax, but like Omar mentioned it should still work. Would you be able to share a sample where this isn't working? Also, when you say when it isn't working, does the expression show no value in the chart? or does it show unexpected value?
