Move an input class to bottom of panel

Path Finder

I understand that Splunk CSS defaults any <input> class to reside at the top of any panel.

I would like to override this setting, and put an input (such as radio, or checklist) at the bottom of the panel, under a results table.

None of the css positioning alterations using panel ID work for <input> class, even with !important. 

Any ideas?

Thanks - but this only works when the top panel and input panel is the first within the row. My challenge is that it's the 2nd or 3rd panel within the same row. 


Hi @timgren 

The easiest option to do this is to add a blank panel under the results table and add the inputs to that:



If you want to move the inputs to underneath the results table, you can try some CSS like this:
First, add IDs to the inputs you want to move - e.g. : 

<input type="radio" token="radio" id="move_radio">

Then add some CSS to your dashboard:

 <row depends="$CSS$"><panel><html>
          #move_txt, #move_radio, #move_check { position:relative; top:555px;z-index:1;}
          #row2 { margin-top: 200px}

That gives you this - with room underneath for the next panel:


That's prone to issues though as when you resize the window the results panel will also resize, so you may need to adjust the CSS to move the inputs to fit.

To be sure, you'd need to add some JavaScript to the dashboard to make sure the inputs moved when the window was resized.

Something like this:

require(['jquery', 'underscore', 'splunkjs/mvc'], function($, _, mvc) {
	$( window ).ready(move_inputs);
	$( window ).resize(move_inputs);
	function move_inputs( jQuery){
		var position = $("#results_panel").position()
		var height = $("#results_panel").height();
		var newtop = position.top + height - 40;
		console.log("Moving to : " + newtop + "px");
		$( "#move_txt" ).css({top:newtop + "px"});
		$( "#move_radio" ).css({top:newtop + "px"});
		$( "#move_check" ).css({top:newtop + "px"});


That assumes that you have the panel called "results_panel" and ids for the inputs as above.
