Changing error message for empty table in different elements

Hi all,
I’m trying to make input for tables/charts empty. So far, it’s done by adding a dummy entry in a filter element which doesn’t exist in the actual table (“Please select a cost carrier” in the filter in image).
Is there a way (ideally a generic way) to set error message chart elements and prompting a message for a empty table to make user set a proper filter options?
