Dashboards & Visualizations

Using SimpleXML, how do you populate singlevalue underLabel option with value from search?

Is it possible to output other values from a search that populates a singlevalue element in my dashboard? What I want is to include a custom description under the singlevalue.

example:

 | EVAL singlevalue="5" | EVAL description="this is a description"  | TABLE singlevalue, description

 <option name="underLabel">$search.description$</option>

 Output:
 5
 this is a description

I assume this is what you intended:

<dashboard>
  <label>Result Token</label>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <title>Set underLabel by result</title>
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| makeresults | eval label="MyLabel" | eval value="MyValue" | table value, label</query>
          <sampleRatio>1</sampleRatio>
          <done>
            <set token="testtoken">$result.label$</set>
          </done>
        </search>
        [...] other options [...]
        <option name="underLabel">$testtoken$</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
  </row>
</dashboard>

You have to set another token with the search results, as simpleXML seems to not be able to access the search results directly.

Not exactly, but this should be good enough for you unless you are really picky:

<dashboard>
  <label>Demonstration of a single value description</label>
  <description>description on single value panel</description>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <title>$description$</title>
      <single>
        <title>$description$</title>
        <search>
          <query>|makeresults | eval singlevalue="5" | eval  description="this is a description"  | table singlevalue description</query>
        <finalized>
          <set token="description">$result.description$</set>
        </finalized>
        </search>
      </single>
    </panel>
  </row>
</dashboard>
