Power BI Desktop: Option to use either light or dark interface
New Desktop app update installed an almost white user interface. There is zero contrast which is not good for the eyes. I see where some people have requested a light interface so incorporate an option to select either light or dark theme like in the Office apps.
Develop an item formatting property which allows to set the visibility of a report item when you want to conditionally hide the item based on a report parameter or some other expression that you specify (also DAX expressions).
You can develop this incrementally starting from visuals, then text boxes, then shapes and buttons….
If you want to go the extra mile, you can also develop a functionality that allows the final user to toggle the visibility of report items.
For more information and since it was an available and really useful capability see “Add an Expand or Collapse Action to an Item (Report Builder and SSRS)”.
