Is there an option to reload a single value panel in a dashboard?

Motivator

I have a dashboard with numerous panels composed of single values and radial gauges.

But sometimes some of them just sit there waiting to load, like below.

This is ok with the radial gauges as I can just use the refresh option in the panel.

This option is not available in the single value panel. Can I make this option available in the single value panel? Otherwise I have to refresh the whole panel.

As an aside there are numerous panels in my dashboard and ideally I would like them all to load completely each time.
Is there any general advice on this? I could reduce the number of panels in the dashboard, but I am looking at other ideas at this stage.

There are 4 invisible-but-hover-enabled icons in the lower left corner of every panel of a Splunk XML dashboard. The 4th/last/rightmost icon is an arrow bent into the shape of a circle. If you click on this, it will reload only that 1 panel.

tks, but that's what I am saying that does not appear in the single value panel. Or maybe I have to enable it by using or something?

The attribute/option that provides the refresh button (on mouse hover) is called "refresh.link.visible" which is true for other visualization but false for single value visualization. Please set it to true explicitly like sample below and you're good to go. See more details here. http://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/6.2.1/Viz/PanelreferenceforSimplifiedXML#single

<dashboard>
  <label>SingleValueRefresh</label>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <single>
        <title>Current Time</title>
        <search>
          <query>| gentimes start=-1 | eval _time=now() | table _time</query>
          <earliest>1417410000</earliest>
          <latest>1420088400</latest>
        </search>
        <option name="drilldown">none</option>
        <option name="refresh.link.visible">true</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
  </row>
</dashboard>
