How to set time to search

Explorer

Hi am getting the earliest tie through a text box and I want to set the latest time automatically to (earliest+24h). Please help me how to do that. I do not want to use the time picker input.

<fieldset submitButton="false">
        <input type="text" token="time" searchWhenChanged="true">
          <label>Enter Date</label>
        </input>
      </fieldset>
    <search>
    <query>
index=abcd application="abcd"  earliest="$time$" |---------
</query>
<refresh>5m</refresh>
</search>

For example the user will enter the date as 03/15/2020:18:30:00 in the text field and I want the latest to be updated to this time+24h( 03/16/2020:18:30:00)

Hi

Check this

| makeresults 
| eval earliest="03/15/2020:18:30:00" 
| eval earliest_epoch = strptime(earliest,"%m/%d/%Y:%k:%M:%S"),latest_epoch=relative_time(earliest_epoch, "+d"), latest=strftime(latest_epoch,"%m/%d/%Y:%k:%M:%S")

Hi I tried what you mentioned. The latest variable is correctly extracting the next days time but when the search is happening it is taking (latest=now) instead of taking the value of latest.
earliest="03/23/2020:00:00:0" |eval earliest="03/23/2020:00:00:0"
| eval earliest_epoch = strptime(earliest,"%m/%d/%Y:%k:%M:%S"),latest_epoch=relative_time(earliest_epoch, "+d"), latest=strftime(latest_epoch,"%m/%d/%Y:%k:%M:%S")
|table earliest, latest

6 events (23/03/2020 00:00:00.000 to 25/03/2020 12:21:23.080)
