## Highlighting the dimension when date or value is selected.

Hi there

Need some help getting the footer of the dimension highlighted ( '<B>' ), i have manage the get the bars highlighted when i selected one of the value in the listbox.

I use this expression for the bars

if(isnull(only(Bruger)),ARGB(255,141, 170, 203) ,if(\$(Formula)) > 0, red(),if(\$(Formula))  < 0, Green())

Thanks

Hi Teis,

start from there:

Unfortunetely i'am afraid, that we cant use there calculated color

Some workaround will be to generate own x-axis values.

You may use another chart (table) with those values. But this may be difficult to manage on the screen.

For me better solution is to use technique like here:

Hi.

Have you tried something like this as 'Text format' expression for that dimension ?

if(isnull(only(Bruger)), null() , '<B>')

Hi and thanks for fast reply

Yes I have tried exactly the same expression as you suggest and it does not seem to work -

should it?

Hi.

If the simple expression ='<B>' doesn't work then it's a chart/client/version limitation.
