Power BI | Report themes exercise | Detailed report theme
This exercise is provided to allow potential course delegates to choose the correct Wise Owl Microsoft training course, and may not be reproduced in whole or in part in any format without the prior written consent of Wise Owl.
You can learn how to do this exercise on the relevant Wise Owl classroom training course (sadly for the moment only in the UK).
You need a minimum screen resolution of about 700 pixels width to see our exercises. This is because they contain diagrams and tables which would not be viewable easily on a mobile phone or small laptop. Please use a larger tablet, notebook or desktop computer, or change your screen resolution settings.
The aim of this exercise is to create a report theme which has custom colours, and which presets all text to fontSize 14 and fontFamily Arial. First create a basic report using the above file:
Either create your own theme from scratch or use the one in the above folder.
Add the basic report theme with the alternate colours:
Good, but its time now to change the font style and make the text much bigger.
Edit your JSON file, changing the settings of text and font size using the following structure:
Use visualStyles to add the section about changing visual settings, and visualName to specify the visual or visuals to change. Use styleName when there are visual sub types. Use cardName to customise features for visuals like the title. Finally, use propertyName to change an aspect of the feature like fontSize.
When in doubt use * to affect all the visuals, styles and cards within each collection. The result:
Much easier to read with the bigger font!
Optionally save this as Super Sizing Strings and close it down.
