How to add custom message in place of "Search is waiting for input" for a dashboard panel?

Influencer

I have a dashboard in which a panel waits to load until a selection is made and the tokens are passed.

Until then the panel displays a warning sign with

"Search is waiting for input... "

Is there a way to customize this message? I want to display a more meaningful message.

The dashboard is developed in Django.

For now you can override it with custom css.

For the django templates you typically will use the divs for layouts so if you slap an ID on the panel you can access the msg like so

.msg {
    visibility: hidden;
}

#errordetails .msg:after {
    content: '<<  Please select an error type on the left...';
    visibility: visible;
    position: relative;
    padding: 20px;
}

I havent figured out how to position the new text correctly yet but that should send you in the right direction
