If this is the core Splunk simplified XML, or core Splunk advanced XML then you cannot do this. Or at least you would have to dive way way in and write custom javascript to patch the core software. And I do not in any way recommend that you try that.

However if you're using Sideview Utils this is relatively easy. In Sideview Utils you can use dollar-tokens, ie "$foo$" as all or part of the label param for the TextField, Pulldown, and Checkbox modules. In fact you can use dollar-tokens pretty much anywhere in the Sideview systems.

So, let's say you had a Sideview Pulldown module offering the user A B or C. And that Pulldown had say "mode" as the value of it's name param. Then below you could have a TextField module, and you would just put:

<param name="label">Enter value for $mode.rawValue$</param>

And that would become "Enter value for A" when the user sees it.

You can read more about Utils here - http://sideviewapps.com/apps/sideview-utils/ Ultimately you'll spend less time being less frustrated, you'll end up with views and dashboards that are much simpler to read and understand, and you'll be able to deliver better dashboards with better functionality to the end users.
