How to specify an or clause to display a panel

Engager

Hi,

I have a panel in an xml dashboard and 2 dropdown inputs that are populated by a search and have a value corresponding to none which is the default value.

I want to display the panel if at least one of the input have a different value than the default.
I have made a token for each input which is set when a value different from none is selected and unset when the default value is chosen.

I have thought at the depends attribute to a panel to which I pass my 2 tokens. But the problem is that the depends attribute is performing an AND clause to the tokens given. The thing I want is an OR clause to the depends attribute or an AND clause to the rejects attribute.

Anyone as an idea to resolve this problem ?

Without XML snippet it would be tough, but let me try

Assuming two dropdown as field1 and field2, you can code the following change event

For field1 dropdown

  <change>
     <condition match"$value$==&quot;none&quot; AND $field2$==&quot;none&quot;">
         <unset token="hidePanel"></unset>
     </condition>
     <condition>
         <set token="hidePanel">true</set>
     </condition>
  </change>

For field2 dropdown

  <change>
     <condition match"$value$==&quot;none&quot; AND $field1$==&quot;none&quot;">
         <unset token="hidePanel"></unset>
     </condition>
     <condition>
         <set token="hidePanel">true</set>
     </condition>
  </change>

Then use hidePanel in for the panel as depends token.

It is probably easier and more efficient to get a clear answer if you can share the actual XML.
