Is It Possible To Use A Simple XML Form Input Name As A Token/Variable

Hi

I have a Simple XML dashboard with the following form input:

 <input type="dropdown" token="stat" searchWhenChanged="true">
  <label>Average Or Median:</label>
  <choice value="avg">Average</choice>
  <choice value="median">Median</choice>
  <default>avg</default>
</input>

I would like to have a variable/token in a Chart Title so that the variable changes whenever someone selects something different in the form input. I can do it with the value - In the above case I could use $stat$ in the chart (i.e. avg or median). However, what I would like to know is whether it is possible to use the Name (i.e. Average or Median) as a variable/token.

Thanks

Shaun

It is possible.

Sample code:

...
      <input type="dropdown" token="stat" searchWhenChanged="true">
        <label>Statistics</label>
        <choice value="MIN">Minimum</choice>
        <choice value="MAX">Maximum</choice>
        <choice value="AVG">Average</choice>        
        <default>MIN</default>
      </input> 
...

Sample search:

        <search id="your_search_id">
          <query>
... | stats $stat$(Your_Field) ...
          </query>
        </search>
