Variables in fieldForValue and fieldForLabel for form drop-down?

Engager

I built a form that uses a couple of drop-downs. They use the same CSV file for input. The first drop-down lets you choose the column name from the table to populate the second drop-down with the values from that column. Since the choice in the first drop-down changes the field that will be returned from the search in the second drop-down I placed variables in the fieldForValue and fieldForLabel entries.

When I test in edit mode everything works fine, but when I click "Done" and try to use the form, I get the error "Duplicate labels causing conflict" and in the editor the variables in the "fieldFor" now have two pair of dollar signs around them rather than one. The source seems to look the same with just one pair of dollar signs.

Edit mode - $gm1$

Done mode - $$gm1$$

Below is the XML source of my form.

Try this for your gv1 dropdown (2nd one)

 <input type="dropdown" token="gv1" searchWhenChanged="true">
       <label>Group Value</label>
       <search>
         <query>| inputlookup groupings.csv | search | dedup $gm1$ | table $gm1$ | eval Commonfield=$gm1$ | stats count by Commonfield</query>
         <earliest>0</earliest>
       </search>
       <fieldForLabel>Commonfield</fieldForLabel>
       <fieldForValue>Commonfield</fieldForValue>
     </input>
