Tip: Use the <a></a> tag instead of your <p></p> or <div></div> tag

When applying conditional formatting to the cells of your visualization using the HTML tag, you may lose your drill field functionality if not careful. To solve this use the <a></a> tag:

dimension: status {

type: string

sql: ${TABLE}.status ;;

html:

{% if value == 'complete' %}

<a href="{{ link }}" style="color: white; background-color: lightgreen; font-size:100%; text-align:center">{{ rendered_value }}</a>

{% elsif value == 'cancelled' %}

<a href="{{ link }}" style="color: white; background-color: red; font-size:100%; text-align:center">{{ rendered_value }}</a>

{% elsif value == 'pending' %}

<a href="{{ link }}" style="color: white; background-color: orange; font-size:100%; text-align:center">{{ rendered_value }}</a>

{% endif %}

;;

drill_fields: [created_date]

 

In our code above, we have applied used the <a></a> tag to apply conditional formatting to our status dimension which allows us to preserve our drill fields.

There is also another approach in the html parameter doc:

html:

<a href="#drillmenu" target="_self">

{% if value > 10000 %}

<font color="#42a338 ">{{ rendered_value }}</font>

{% elsif value > 5000 %}

<font color="#ffb92e ">{{ rendered_value }}</font>

{% else %}

<font color="#fa4444 ">{{ rendered_value }}</font>

{% endif %}

</a>;;
