When I specify a layout of either reslutsAreaLeft or sidebar in one of my views, the view hangs. It mostly loads, then displays a 'loading' message that never goes away. I cannot find any documentation that would indicate that either of these layouts would require any special configuration. Does any have any suggestions?
I see this error in the error console:
Timestamp: 12/7/2012 3:54:00 PM
Error: Error: Could not find module class instance for DOM ID=EnablePreview19_0 (21 modules total).
Source File: http://192.168.244.128:8000/en-US/static/@115073/js/common.min.js
Here is the representative code:
<module name="SearchBar" autoRun="true" layoutPanel="panel_row1_col1"> <module name="SimpleResultsTable" layoutPanel="sidebar"> <param name="fields">_raw</param> </module> <module name="SimpleResultsTable" layoutPanel="panel_row1_col2"> <param name="fields">_raw</param> </module> </module> <!-- End SearchBar--> </module> <!-- End HiddenSearch--> </module> <!-- End TimeRangePicker-->
its nonsensical, but it is representative of what I am trying to do.
Originally, I was trying to display a FieldPicker module and it wouldn't display at all - that's how I stumbled on these potential layout values.
Interestingly enough, I tried the 'search' example from the UI Examples - I just copied the source from that and put it into a view in my app. Of course, the example worked in the context of the UI Example app, but it did not work in my app(hangs as I initially described), which I take to imply that there is more configuration involved
It's because you're using the "dashboard" template, and resultsAreaLeft and sidebar are panels only available in the "search" template. I agree the error messaging here should be better.
And the docs page ( http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/5.0.4/AdvancedDev/AdvancedSearch#Results_layout_panels ) actually neglects to mention that the set of layoutPanels available differs between the templates.
same question. Also if there's a "loading" message then there will be a JS error in the console (Tools > Error Console). Can you look for that too? Posting the view somewhere like pastebin would be very helpful too.
