Hiding default value in text input.

New Member

I want to develope a dashboard which has a search criteria having multiple text inputs. The default value for text input is "All" i.e. %. The code for same is as below :

<input type="text" token="var_tkn" searchWhenChanged="false">

%

But when i run this code, "%" value is shown in the text box. I don't want to show the "%" value in text box but want to show "blank" or "All" in the text box. How can i achieve this? How can i hide % in the textbox?

@AditiKulkarni, please try the following run anywhere dashboard example.

Default value for the text box input txtName is All, however, the <change>Event Handler of text box is used to pass on the value of tokenvar_tkn as % whenever the selected value in textbox is All

<form>
  <label>Change TextBox Default Value</label>
  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input type="text" token="txtName" searchWhenChanged="true">
      <label>Variable Name</label>
      <default>All</default>
      <change>
        <condition value="All">
          <set token="var_tkn">%</set>
        </condition>
        <condition>
          <set token="var_tkn">$value$</set>
        </condition>
      </change>
    </input>
  </fieldset>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <table>
        <search>
          <query>| makeresults
| eval var_tkn="$var_tkn$" 
| table var_tkn
          </query>
        </search>
      </table>
    </panel>
  </row>
</form>

One way is to put the desired string in your input statement and then change it at search time.

<input type="text" token="var_tkn" searchWhenChanged="false">
Variable name
All 
</input>
...
<searchString>index = foo | eval Variable name=if(Variable name="All","%",Variable name) | ... </searchString>
