How to create dynamic tooltips display for a bar chart

I would like to create a dynamic tooltips display (concate a string) for a bar chart when a selection is made.

Dax Formula:

Shift dynamic ToolTips = 
VAR sel = VALUES(CollectDetails[ShiftSelection])
RETURN if ( ISFILTERED(CollectDetails[ShiftSelection]), CONCATENATEX(sel, CollectDetails[ShiftSelection], ", ") , BLANK() )

I added this measure into tooltips section of the bar chart control.

But for some reason the Tooltips is not working. Could be the IsFilter() context can’t apply in Bar Chart visual?

Could someone please help me ?

Complete PBIX attached.

Can you tell what exactly should be visible on the bar chart and is the visual interaction should be highlight or can be changed to filter in filter its appearing.

Hi Anurug,

The bar chart tooltips should display the Shift information (as you had shown in the pic) when “shift” is selected in the table. When nothing is selected in the table, then this Toolstips should show “blank” = nothing.

thanks for looking into it.
