Hi xbbj3nj,

yes, this is possible. Take this run everywhere example for index=_internal on Splunk 6.1.1 :

<form>
  <label>index _internal Fu</label>
  <description/>
  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input type="dropdown" token="v_series" searchWhenChanged="true">
      <label>series</label>
      <choice value="*">all</choice>
      <populatingSearch fieldForLabel="series" fieldForValue="series">index=_internal | table series</populatingSearch>
      <default>*</default>
    </input>
    <input type="dropdown" token="v_sourcetype" searchWhenChanged="true">
      <label>sourcetypes</label>
      <choice value="*">all</choice>
      <populatingSearch fieldForLabel="sourcetype" fieldForValue="sourcetype">index=_internal | table sourcetype</populatingSearch>
      <default>*</default>
    </input>
  </fieldset>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <chart>
        <title>All series</title>
        <searchString>index=_internal series=$v_series$ | timechart count</searchString>
        <earliestTime>0</earliestTime>
        <latestTime/>
        <selection>
          <set token="selection.earliest">$start$</set>
          <set token="selection.latest">$end$</set>
          <set token="start.count">$start.count$</set>
          <set token="end.count">$end.count$</set>
        </selection>
      </chart>
    </panel>
  </row>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <chart>
        <title>All sourcetypes</title>
        <searchString>index=_internal sourcetype=$v_sourcetype$ | timechart count</searchString>
        <earliestTime>$selection.earliest$</earliestTime>
        <latestTime>$selection.latest$</latestTime>
        <option name="charting.axisLabelsX.majorLabelStyle.overflowMode">ellipsisNone</option>
        <option name="charting.axisLabelsX.majorLabelStyle.rotation">0</option>
        <option name="charting.axisTitleX.visibility">visible</option>
        <option name="charting.axisTitleY.visibility">visible</option>
        <option name="charting.axisTitleY2.visibility">visible</option>
        <option name="charting.axisX.scale">linear</option>
        <option name="charting.axisY.scale">linear</option>
        <option name="charting.axisY2.enabled">false</option>
        <option name="charting.axisY2.scale">inherit</option>
        <option name="charting.chart">bar</option>
        <option name="charting.chart.nullValueMode">gaps</option>
        <option name="charting.chart.sliceCollapsingThreshold">0.01</option>
        <option name="charting.chart.stackMode">default</option>
        <option name="charting.chart.style">shiny</option>
        <option name="charting.drilldown">all</option>
        <option name="charting.layout.splitSeries">0</option>
        <option name="charting.legend.labelStyle.overflowMode">ellipsisMiddle</option>
        <option name="charting.legend.placement">right</option>
      </chart>
    </panel>
  </row>
</form>

the first dropdown will be used only in the first panel and the second drop down will be used only in the second panel.

hope this helps ...

cheers, MuS

Just try it, it will do no harm. I truly cannot tell you if it will work, because I don't have any 6.0.3 available - sorry
