All Apps and Add-ons

Why does it seem like a checkboxes module does not dispatch my search?

This view only returns "Loading..."

<view template="dashboard.html" isVisible="true">
  <label>SERVER SELECTOR</label>

  <module name="AccountBar" layoutPanel="appHeader" />
  <module name="AppBar" layoutPanel="appHeader" />
  <module name="SideviewUtils" layoutPanel="viewHeader" />

    <module name="Search" layoutPanel="panel_row1_col1">
      <param name="search">host=* | head 10000 | stats dc(host) by host</param>

      <module name="Checkboxes">
        <param name="labelField">host</param>
        <param name="name">servers</param>
        <param name="valueField">host</param>
        <param name="staticCheckboxes"/>
      </module>

   </module>
</view>

While this view (with the button) returns what I expect. (after the button is pressed obviously)

<view template="dashboard.html" isVisible="true">
  <label>SERVER SELECTOR</label>

  <module name="AccountBar" layoutPanel="appHeader" />
  <module name="AppBar" layoutPanel="appHeader" />
  <module name="SideviewUtils" layoutPanel="viewHeader" />

   <module name="Button" layoutPanel="panel_row1_col1">
   <param name="label">GO!</param>

   <module name="Search" >
      <param name="search">host=* | head 10000 | stats dc(host) by host</param>

      <module name="Checkboxes">
        <param name="labelField">host</param>
        <param name="name">servers</param>
        <param name="valueField">host</param>
        <param name="staticCheckboxes"/>
      </module>

   </module>
</module>
</view>

How do I write this so that the search is dispatched on page load without a button press?

Consider setting autoRun="True" on your search.

Indeed it is. Don't forget to mark this as solved.

Perfect! It is a shame I somehow missed that in reading over (and over again) the sideview docs. Its so obvious once you know.

Thanks again!
