    You might try a DIFFERENT brand of cable. Make sure the one you get is specifically advertised to work with 2017 Macs (some usb-c to displayport cables that worked with 2016 models DO NOT WORK with the 2017's).

    Alternative approach if you can't find ANY usb-c/displayport cable that works with this display:
    I know others will object, but I'd suggest trying a usb-c/VGA adapter, and then use a VGA cable to the display's VGA port. If it works, it works.

    Does the display have an HDMI port? (I checked and didn't see any, but I could be wrong).
    You might try that approach, too.

    Again, whatever way you can find that works -- I'd run with it.

    I also use this with the Dell P2715Q. Works great.

    The Plugable cable works perfect with my 2017 iMac 5K and Dell U2715H.
