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>

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

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
