Measure Value Filter

The Measure Value Filter component is a dropdown component that allows you to create a new measure value filter or to edit an existing one. When a user clicks Apply, a callback function that contains a measure value filter ready to be used in the visualization component is called.

Measure Value Filter Component


import "@gooddata/sdk-ui-filters/styles/css/main.css";
import { MeasureValueFilter } from "@gooddata/sdk-ui-filters";



The following example shows a bar chart displaying one measure sliced by one attribute. A user can use the Measure Value Filter component to filter the displayed rows and see the relevant data only.

import React, { Component } from "react";
import "@gooddata/sdk-ui-filters/styles/css/main.css";
import "@gooddata/sdk-ui-charts/styles/css/main.css";
import { MeasureValueFilter } from "@gooddata/sdk-ui-filters";
import * as Md from "./md/full";

const measureTitle = "$ Total Sales";

export default class SalesByResort extends Component {
    this.state = { filters: [ newMeasureValueFilter(Md.$TotalSales, "GREATER_THAN", 0) ] };

    onApply = filter => {
        this.setState({ filters: [filter] });

    render() {
        const { filters } = this.state;

        return (

Formatting user input

To format input inside the Measure Value Filter component, use separators. The separators are controlled by the separators property that specifies the thousands separator (, by default) and the decimal separator (. by default).

For example:

    separators={{ thousand: " ", decimal: "," }}

Treating null values as 0

By default, an execution containing a measure value filter does not pass null (missing) values to arithmetic operations. However, you can allow users to make the execution treat the null values as 0 and include the null results in the filtering process.

To do so, enable the “Treat blank values as 0” checkbox in the filter dialog. By default, the checkbox is not selected.

Treat null values as 0

To enable the checkbox, set the displayTreatNullAsZeroOption property to true.

To make it be selected by default, set the treatNullAsZeroDefaultValue property to true.



filtertrueFilterThe measure value filter definition
onApplytrueFunctionA callback when the selection is confirmed by a user. The passed configuration of the measure value filter is already transformed into a measure value filter definition, which you can then send directly to a chart.
onCancelfalseFunctionA callback when a user clicks the Cancel button or makes the dropdown close by clicking outside of it
buttonTitlefalsestringThe title of the toggle button
usePercentagefalsebooleanfalseIf true, the filtered measure is formatted as a percentage. This means that the filter dropdown will accept percentage values, not the actual measure values. Set usePercentage to false when computeRatio is enabled in the filtered measure, because in this case it is filtered by actual measure values and not percentage ones.
warningMessagefalsestring or object with text (string) and severityundefinedThe warning message displayed in the dropdown. severity specifies the background color of the message.

Custom toggle button

If you want to use your own custom button for toggling the filter dropdown, use the Measure Value Filter Dropdown component. This component renders only the dropdown body outside of the current DOM tree using portals.

Custom button

The component has all the same properties as the Measure Value Filter component (see Properties) with the following exceptions:

  • The buttonTitle property is irrelevant for the Measure Value Filter Dropdown component.
  • The onCancel property is mandatory for the Measure Value Filter Dropdown component, because it is supposed to be used to hide the dropdown.
  • The Measure Value Filter Dropdown component has one additional property, anchorEl. This optional property specifies the element that the dropdown is aligned to, which is typically your toggle button. The property can be an event target or a string and defaults to "body".
