Dashboards & Visualizations

Why am I getting a syntax error with the "&" character for a drilldown in my XML?

I want to pass two parameters the URL with drilldown, but when I put &, the code is in red.
Does anyone know why? And how to solve?

You need to escape the & character or enclose the URL in CDATA tag. Like this

<link>
<![CDATA[
  /app/search/form_for_drilldown?form.sourcetype=$row.sourcetype$&earliest=$earliest$&latest=$latest$
]]>
</link>
