Passing variables to other forms in Sideview

I'm sure this is a dumb question, but my brain is not working today and it's kind of urgent that I figure this out. I can't figure out how to pass click variables to a new view. I have a table of values (time, host, CpuLoad) that result from one search, and I want to load a separate view with a distinct search that takes the clicked-on time and host as arguments. (I guess I could load them in another panel in the same form if that's easier; I just need to run an entirely new search.) I've tried to copy the sideview examples (the views are already in advanced XML), but all that happens is that my second form gets the literal strings $click.fields.host$ and $click.fields.time$ and doesn't substitute the variables. What am I doing wrong?

Oh, good lord. Was passing variables to a HiddenSearch instead of a Search. Once I changed that it worked fine.

Hi,

I am in the same situation like I want to pass clicked value to another form. I have a value (EventID) that result from one search, and I want to load a separate view with a distinct search that takes the clicked-on EventID as argument using sideviewUtils. Also I am stuck with how to autorun the form with new clicked values. Please help.

@disha, I would recommend posting a new question (and maybe including a link to this one in the new post). Since this is marked as answered and accepted, it won't get the same attention that a new question would.
