How to customize the width of panels in an HTML dashboard?

Path Finder

Hi All,

I have a sample dashboard using HTML.

There's 3 panels in one row. And I would like to assign the different width to these panels..... say 20% for first panels, 30% for second panels, 50% for third panels.

After upload the HTML to Splunk and run the dashboard. The system will modify the width to 33.33% for these 3 panels like the following coding.....

So I would like to know how we can customize the width in dashboard.

<div class="dashboard-row dashboard-row1">
<div class="dashboard-cell" style="width: 33.3333%;">
<div class="dashboard-panel clearfix" style="min-height: 315px;">
<div class="panel-element-row">
<div id="element1" class="dashboard-element map" style="width: 100%;">
</div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="dashboard-cell" style="width: 33.3333%;">
<div class="dashboard-panel clearfix" style="min-height: 315px;">
<div class="panel-element-row">
<div id="element2" class="dashboard-element chart splunk-view" style="width: 100%">
</div>
</div>
</div>
<div class="dashboard-cell last-visible" style="width: 33.3333%;">
<div class="dashboard-panel clearfix" style="min-height: 315px;">
<div class="panel-element-row">
<div id="element3" class="dashboard-element chart" style="width: 100%">
</div>
</div>
</div>

As a workaround try using min-width instead of width as an attribute or style=" width: 70% !important". I have tried this on chrome.

Just change the line:

<div class="dashboard-cell" style="width: 33.3333%;">

and define the "width: 20%;", it'll look like that:

<div class="dashboard-cell" style="width: 20%;">

I did that using the HTML Editor inside Splunk and works for me.

I know the question specifically states a html dashboard, but I've used the following javascript detailed in this answer with Simple XML using Splunk 6.1.1 - could it also be applied to a HTML dashboard?

Tried. This method only worked in Chrome, but not worked in Firefox

Here the feedback from Splunk Support:

Hi xxxx,

It looks like a regression the fix will be shipped in the ver 6.1.5.
As a workaround for that - as updated in the splunk answers - try the below;

style=" width: 70% !important".

Hope it helps and feel free to ask should you need more assistance on this.

Yes, I just opened my old VM running 6.0x and works there. I'll raise a support ticket to report this bug! If you have access to the support, pls do the same! Cheers

I am using 6.1 version.

Hi Chrismok,

What version of Splunk are you running?!

Asking that because it was working fine over here on 6.0.2 but I just upgrade the environment couple of weeks ago and now it's presenting the same error as you're describing. Maybe that's a bug introduced by the new feature of resizing SimpleXML width 😞

Now we're two looking for the same solution

Still not work, I cant create the dashboard and paste the following code to your splunk server. And you will see that the width will become 33.33333% again....
