Dashboards & Visualizations

custom viz formatter.html div.hlp-block

RngFox

Hi,

I am writing a custom visual and stumbled across some new "feature" that is added to the format options.
There is this new div-container added. It writes under all options "undefined".
Easiest way might be to just hide all div.help-block with css, but the might have a meaning after all.
How can i address it in the formatter.html to fill some usefull information?

part from formatter.html:
alt text

Hi @RngFox,

I had the same problem with my own apps. It looks like from around Splunk 7.3-ish the word "undefined" appeared under all the fields in the visualization options menu.

The work-around is to provide help, or a single space character, so that there is a value to display within the splunk-control-group tag:

To show nothing (removing 'undefined'):

<splunk-control-group label="Mode" help=" ">

To show a helpful message:

<splunk-control-group label="Mode" help="Select the mode">

See the Formatter API reference.

Updating your formatter.html to include this attribute on all tags will remove the annoying 'undefined' message.

Cheers
Daniel
