Dashboards & Visualizations

Why depends not working when simple XML dashboard is converted to HTML?

I have a dashboard with a some input fields. The dropdowns are dependent on the value selected from radio group. This is all working good with the Simple XML. But, when I convert the dashboard to HTML, the dependent inputs are not working at all. Both dropdowns are always showing up regardless of the value I select from the radio options. Can someone please help me what is wrong? Is this a bug or not supported functionality?

Here is the Simple XML:

<form>
      <label>Inputs test XML</label>
      <init>
        <set token="show_typeone">true</set>
      </init>
      <fieldset submitButton="false">
        <input type="radio" token="type">
          <label>Type</label>
          <choice value="onevalue">One</choice>
          <choice value="twovalue">Two</choice>
          <change>
            <condition value="onevalue">
              <set token="show_typeone">true</set>
              <unset token="show_typetwo"></unset>
            </condition>
            <condition value="twovalue">
              <set token="show_typetwo">true</set>
              <unset token="show_typeone"></unset>
            </condition>
          </change>
        </input>
        <input type="dropdown" token="typeoneval" depends="$show_typeone$">
          <label>Type One Dropdown</label>
          <choice value="*">All</choice>
          <choice value="Option1">Option 1</choice>
          <choice value="Option2">Option 2</choice>
          <default>*</default>
          <initialValue>*</initialValue>
        </input>
        <input type="dropdown" token="typetwoval" depends="$show_typetwo$">
          <label>Type Two Dropdown</label>
          <choice value="*">All</choice>
          <choice value="option3">Option 3</choice>
          <choice value="option4">Option4</choice>
          <default>*</default>
          <initialValue>*</initialValue>
        </input>
      </fieldset>
    </form>

And here is the converted HTML:

@kjandhyala I would hope depends/rejects to work once Simple XML is converted to HTML Dashboard. However, if you already have converted dashboard to HTML why don't you mix CSS and JS code to set the visibility of specific panel <div> as hidden/visible? That would also be straightforward. Moreover HTML dashboards are meant to provide you control over the contents similar to Web Pages.
