Populate Pulldown and Pause

I have a pulldown menu that I'd like to populate from an inputlookup and then have everything pause until the user selects one of the options from the pulldown, which should then kickoff the dashboard. So far I have everything working apart from the "pause" part. It's causing a issue for me because when the dashboard loads it automatically just takes the first user in the pulldown and runs a query that takes ages to run. How do I go about making this work?

<view autoCancelInterval="90" decomposeIntentions="false" isPersistable="true" isSticky="false" isVisible="true" objectMode="viewconf" onunloadCancelJobs="true" template="dashboard.html">

I found the answer in this question. Once I added allowSoftSubmit everything worked fine.
