Dropdown on a panel

Motivator

Hi,

I have the below simple XML code for a dropdown on a panel but for some reason I can't get it to show on the panel. What am I missing? (tablevariablescubscribers is set from a table selection and the resulting chart works just fine. Just no dropdown visible)

<!-- Begin create a line chart based off of the drilldown above -->
      <!-- Don't show a panel until tablevariable is set -->
      <chart depends="$tablevariablesubscribers$">
        <title>Expanded Subscriber Connectivity for - $tablevariablesubscribers$</title>

       <input type="dropdown" token="predict_time" searchWhenChanged="true">
      <label>Select number of days to predict:</label>
      <default>ccivirpxa0*</default>
      <choice value="90">90 Days</choice>
      <choice value="7">7 Days</choice>
      <choice value="30">30 Days</choice>
      <choice value="60">60 Days</choice>
      <choice value="180">180 Days</choice>
      <choice value="365">365 Days</choice>
      <choice value="1000">Maximum</choice>
    </input>

Try moving the input outside the chart and add depends to the panel instead. Like this

<panel depends="$tablevariablesubscribers$">
         <title>Expanded Subscriber Connectivity for - $tablevariablesubscribers$</title>

        <input type="dropdown" token="predict_time" searchWhenChanged="true">
       <label>Select number of days to predict:</label>
       <default>ccivirpxa0*</default>
       <choice value="90">90 Days</choice>
       <choice value="7">7 Days</choice>
       <choice value="30">30 Days</choice>
       <choice value="60">60 Days</choice>
       <choice value="180">180 Days</choice>
       <choice value="365">365 Days</choice>
       <choice value="1000">Maximum</choice>

Hi Sundareshr! Sorry I don't quite understand. The panel with the subscriber and prediction count shows up just fine. It's the dropdown that never shows up.

well I think I figured out what you are trying to tell me. Here is the updated code. But.... I get this error when trying to save

Ok found where the other panel was and fixed it 🙂 Now it shows WITH the dropdown !!!! Thank you!!!!

The reason dropdown doesn't show is becuase you have it inside the chart tags. So it treats it as options/settings for the chart. Just the <input type=dropdown>.....</input> which is currently right after <chart depends="$tablevariablesubscribers$"> to before the <chart depends="$tablevariablesubscribers$"> and the set the token dependency at the panel level. SO your panel will look like this <panel depends="$tablevariablesubscribers$">
