Select first value of populating search

Communicator

Hello,

I´m looking for another option or possibility to select the first value of a populating search of a dropdown than using "true". Important is that the first value is selected automatically every time the populating search stopped running! And is it possible to always hide the dropdown in the dashboard in simple xml?

Thanks
Greetings

You can use tag

    <input type="dropdown" token="t_Bank">
          <label>Choose Bank</label>
          <choice value="*">All</choice>
          <default>*</default>
          <populatingSearch fieldForValue="Bank" fieldForLabel="Bank">
            <![CDATA[search -----------------]]>
          </populatingSearch>
        </input>

Hello,

no sorry thats not possible, because so I just get * as result for default. But what I need is the first searched value as default. Is it possible, if I use advanced XML or HTML?

Hello,

I found out that "true" is working. But just if the site is getting refreshed. Is it possible to force refreshing the site without losing the selection in the other input fields?

Hello,


2014


Quarter 1

index = any |stats count|eval new = $time$$year$)
The token "new" gives me 1 value which is a combination of the other dropdowns.An Example is 'Quarter_1(2014)'

It's the only option to select the first option in Simple xml (at least the only one I know of). Could you provide the xml you're using?

The problem is that it is not working for me. I always get just one value as result of the populating search, so it would be enough to just get this value automatically selected.
