How to control dataflow in Sideview modules.

Hello,

I'm building a dashboard with a number of pulldowns, buttons and textboxes to allow users to precisely identify the data their searching for. Here's what I'm shooting for...

  1. User enters data in a text field.
  2. Once User enters data in the text field, Pulldown#1 populates based on value in text field
  3. Once User chooses pulldown#1, pulldown #2 poplulates based on values in text field AND pulldown #1
  4. After choosing value from pulldown#2, they choose timepicker, then click search. Only then will the data in the results panel be filled out.

I've successfully limited the results panel from populating until the user chooses search, but I don't know how to stop Pulldown#1 and #2 from populating in advance of user choosing text field.

After some tinkering around, I came up with a solution. The key is to identify which Sideview modules are capable of stopping dataflow as many of the modules automatically pass data downstream with no ability to stop the dataflow. One such module is the Button module. So.. I added the button module after the text field. Thanks me!
