Just ran into the same issue with the same fix (close browser and reopen)

I recreated the error using the following steps:
1. create a text input field with label/token field1
2. create a drop down, set the label/token to field1, dynamically created based off a search (in my case it was a lookup)
3. delete the text input
4. select a value from the drop down (at this point the drop down should disappear)

@sarit_s please add more details for the community to assist you better. If possible please add simple XML for the dropdown and also a screenshot of the issue you are facing. You should mask/anonymize any sensitive information before posting.

Hi
this is the xml :

<input type="dropdown" token="customer">
      <label>Customer</label>
      <default>*</default>
      <choice value="*">ALL</choice>
      <fieldForLabel>CUSTOMER_ACCOUNT_NAME</fieldForLabel>
      <fieldForValue>CUSTOMER_ACCOUNT_NAME</fieldForValue>
      <search>
        <query>|  inputlookup printer_attributes 
| top CUSTOMER_ACCOUNT_NAME limit=0 showcount=0 showperc=0
| sort 0 CUSTOMER_ACCOUNT_NAME</query>
        <earliest>-24h@h</earliest>
        <latest>now</latest>
      </search>
    </input>

Can you try changing the query to the following

 |  inputlookup printer_attributes 
 | stats count by CUSTOMER_ACCOUNT_NAME

How many CUSTOMER_ACCOUNT_NAME values are there?

In your screenshot the name of the Dropdown changes which is strange.

I tried the following with run no issues

  <fieldset submitButton="false" autoRun="false">
    <input type="dropdown" token="customer">
      <label>Component</label>
      <default>*</default>
      <choice value="*">ALL</choice>
      <fieldForLabel>component</fieldForLabel>
      <fieldForValue>component</fieldForValue>
      <search>
        <query>index=_internal sourcetype=splunkd
 | stats count by component
 | fields - count</query>
        <earliest>-1h@h</earliest>
        <latest>now</latest>
      </search>
    </input>
  </fieldset>

Somewhere you're unsetting it in other dashboard or js code.

That or it's your browser having compatibility issues.
