@khanlarloo, as stated earlier I feel the issue is with default value not set for host text box. I was able to recreate the same. Also, if you have not made any changes to the tabs.js script file, you should have searchWhenChanged="false" for inputs and have submitButton="true" for fieldset.

Following is run anywhere dashboard similar to your screenshot based on Splunk's _internal index.
PS: I have not made any changes to JS, however, I have included CSS within the dashboard to avoid dependency with an additional CSS file for running this example.
Submit button should be present to run the example, unless you have made corrections to handle the same in tabs.js file.

How would you use the link switching to show multiple search panels for each option. For example, I'd like to create a tabbed or link switched dashboard to show 'Current' or 'Historical' data. In each I have several panels that I would like to display depending on which option is chosen.

Who it be easier to map each link switch option to a view/dashboard?

@johnward4 I would request you to provide a mock screenshot of what you need. Also if the requirement/use case is different from the Dashboard Tabs using JS then you would need to post a separate question with as much details as possible so that community experts can assist you better.

@abhayneilam this is related to the blog post mentioned in the question. It gives you link to Github repository to download the required files.

Hi. I have tried the tab.js and XML code on an older browser, IE 11, it works perfectly.
However, when I'm running it on Microsoft Edge/ Google. The toggling function stops working.

Any Idea why?

@marvinlee93 we have tested this with Splunk 7.0 on all IE, Edge and Chrome and it seems to work fine. Since this feature is implemented with JavaScript, why don't you try Browser Inspector tool and see whether there are any Console errors.

have you double checked that Search by Host is provided in that text box? Perhaps set a default to that input. You may also need to check that Search when changed is set to true in the simple xml, otherwise add a Submit button to the dashboard. It looks like the panel is waiting for inputs to be submitted.

Legend

@khanlarloo, This might be because host value is not provided in the text box.
