My team would like to dynamically show certain visuals when a row in a particular table/visual is selected. We have found that there is no ability to update parameters via a Select Action, which is the only input to a rule for conditional rendering. We think this could be possible if we could update a parameter from a Select Action, or if there was an input to conditional rendering rules based on a selected row.
Unless I am missing something. You can update a parameter from a select action.
This is an action that gets activated when I click on a row in a table. It selects the customer_name field from the selected row in the table and set the CusotomerName parameter. In this case I am staying on the current sheet because I want to manipulate the other visuals.
Thanks for the reply!
We have tried something similar. This didn’t work for us since the behavior is slightly different than just updating a parameter without a navigation action.
The navigation action causes the selected row to not appear as selected, and that means there is not a good interface for unselecting that row as well as potentially confusing the user.
Agree. The way I worked around the solution was to:
- create a control for the parameter – so that users could see it
- add a reset command – and use the subtitle to tell users to click it if needed
- change visual’s the titles to include the parameter
It wasn’t perfect – because you can’t highlight the row – but people seem to be able to use it.
