Dropdown Question?

Hi Friends,

I have a drop-down filter in dashboard. If that filter is not populating any value, then while loading the dashboard itself that filter shouldn't be visible in dashboard and tokens used in the panel query(dashboard) for that filter shouldn't be active..

Wise versa once the data is there in that filter, filter need to be shown in dashboard and tokens used in the panel query(dashboard) for that filter should be active..

Please help me on achieving it ..

Thanks in advance ..

      <fieldForLabel>count</fieldForLabel>
      <fieldForValue>count</fieldForValue>
      <search>
        <query> .....  your query........</query>
        <earliest>-24h@h</earliest>
        <latest>now</latest>
        <done>
          <condition match="'job.resultCount' >0">
            <set token="show_dropdown">true</set>
          </condition>
