Simple Dropdown

Contributor

I'm trying to create a dropdown based on the following query:

index=MyApp tgtHostname=$tgtHostname$

The form is there and the default value of "any" seems to work. However the dropdown is not populated. Any idea why? Thanks.

<form>
  <label>My form search</label>
  <searchTemplate>index=MyApp tgtHostname=$tgtHostname$</searchTemplate>

  <fieldset>
    <input type="dropdown" token="tgtHostname">
       <label>Select the hostname</label>
       <populatingSearch fieldForValue="tgtHostname" fieldForLabel="tgtHostname"><![CDATA[index=MyApp tgtHostname=$tgtHostname$]]></populatingSearch>
     <default>somehost.somedomain.com</default>
     <choice value="*">Any</choice>
    </input>
  </fieldset>

  <row>
   <table>
     <title>Host Names</title>
     <option name="showPager">true</option>
   </table>
   </row>
</form>

Watch your syntax as well. It's not shown here since the code sample widget didn't work for me, but make sure you have an upper Case T in searchTemplate, Uppercase F and L in fieldForLabel and uppercase F and V in fieldForValue

I have no clue why the code sample box isn't working for me, but that should do it for you.
