How to set current month as default value in drop-down?

Path Finder

I have two drop-down inputs(from and to) where the user can choose the duration of the data to be displayed. I want to use the current month as default of the 2 inputs. How can I do that?

Here is my xml code for my 2 inputs.

   <input id="input1" type="dropdown" token="from_tok" searchWhenChanged="true">
        <label>From</label>
        <default></default>

Hi @katrinamara ,

Can you please try below code in your dashboard?

<form>
  <label>Dropdown Select</label>
  <search>
    <query>| makeresults  | eval current_month = strftime(now(),"%B-%Y") | table current_month</query>
    <done>
      <set token="tkn_current_month">$result.current_month$</set>
    </done>
  </search>
  <fieldset submitButton="false">
    <input id="input1" type="dropdown" token="from_tok" searchWhenChanged="true">
      <label>From</label>
      <default>$tkn_current_month$</default>
      <fieldForLabel>month</fieldForLabel>
      <fieldForValue>month</fieldForValue>
      <search>
        <query>| makeresults | eval month="01,02,03,04,05,06,07,08,09,10,11,12" | makemv delim="," month | stats count by month | eval month = "01-".month."-2018" | eval month = strftime(strptime(month."-2018","%d-%m-%Y"),"%B-%Y") | table month</query>
      </search>
    </input>
  </fieldset>
</form>

I have added below code which is set current month value in token, which is used as default value in dropdown.

 <search>
        <query>| makeresults  | eval current_month = strftime(now(),"%B-%Y") | table current_month</query>
        <done>
          <set token="tkn_current_month">$result.current_month$</set>
        </done>
      </search>

Thanks

Hi, the value for drop-down should come from the Leave Start Date and Leave End Date in our data. I don't think I can declare the month as shown above.
