Power BI – Modifying the Colours in the Options of the Visual Headers
I was recently consulting at a customer and I was looking to better understand if there was a way to disable the exporting of Underlying data, but whilst investigating this I came across the formatting pane and as shown below I could modify the menu in the Options for Visual Headers which I detail below.
The first step is to make sure that you have enabled the “Use the modern visual header with updated styling options” in the settings in Power BI Desktop as shown below.
Next,I clicked on the Visual and went into the Format options for the Visual and searched for Visual Header
This is what it looks like after I have configured the Visual Header settings
And this is how I configured it.
The first thing that I did was to change the Background Colour
I then made the Border Colour the same as the Background Colour, so that it looks like a single colour.
I changed the transparency to 0%, this is so that it will display correctly over other visuals as shown below.
This is what it looks like with the above transparency.
But if I had to change the transparency to 50% this is what it would look like below, which might be confusing to the users interacting with the report and visuals.
The final thing that I did was to update the font colour to better match my visuals.
And once again, this is what it looks like once complete.
One additional thing to note is that I made the Title have the same look and feel by using the same background colour and font for the Title.
