Create Submit Button in XML to run the search?

Communicator

I have 6 multi-select input in my dashboard .Whenever I select one of the values the search starts running but I want a"Submit" button to control the search so that my tables and graphs load after I click on the submit button ??

You need to enable submit button and disable searchWhenChanged

Like this

  <fieldset submitButton="true" autoRun="false">
    <input type="multiselect" token="field1" searchWhenChanged="false">

Can you elaborate since I think this is what I want?

First line enable Submit button based on code submitButton="true" and secondline is MultiSelect input with token as field1 but searchWhenChanged="false" this code will disable execution of search query when you select, deselect Multiselect input means you can do N number of selection and query will not execute while doing selection, query will execute only when you will click Submit button.

I hope this helps.

<fieldset submitButton="true" autoRun="false"> will be used only once in Dashboard.

Please see sample dashboard XML with 2 multiselect input

<form>
  <label>test</label>
  <fieldset submitButton="true" autoRun="false">
    <input type="multiselect" token="field1" searchWhenChanged="false">
      <label>field1</label>
      <choice value="sourcetype">Sourcetype</choice>
      <search>
        <query/>
        <earliest>-24h@h</earliest>
        <latest>now</latest>
      </search>
      <delimiter> </delimiter>
    </input>
    <input type="multiselect" token="field2" searchWhenChanged="false">
      <label>field2</label>
      <choice value="host">Host</choice>
      <delimiter> </delimiter>
    </input>
  </fieldset>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <table>
        <search>
          <query>index=_internal | stats count by $field1$, $field2$</query>
          <earliest>-15m</earliest>
          <latest>now</latest>
        </search>
      </table>
