Dashboards & Visualizations

How to create drilldown search displayed as pop-up box?


I know how to create a drilldown in my dashboard (classic) to link a search with the selected input that I click on for a visualization but is it possible to have the results displayed in a different manner?

Particularly I'm looking to have the search run and results displayed in a pop-up box rather than a separate tab.

I couldn't find any documentation addressing this specifically and I'm not great with XML. Either a point in the right direction or an answer would be greatly appreciated!

NOTE: In the instance I'm working with I cannot add .js files to reference so if it requires javascript, I'd have to put it in my dashboard code.

Follow up question: Can I use modal popups in the way I'm requesting or would I need to either covert the dashboard to HTML or use the separate javascript file?

Thanks for the examples and references.

Do these have to be referenced as an XML extension, i.e., "<form script="ModalViewComponentSimple.js">?

Or can I add the contents of the ".js" to the dashboard XML directly?

I don't have the ability to add files to the Splunk directory.
