Custom Dashboards - Formatting HTML Text - Static Content - Inline Searching?

Path Finder

Hi all,

I'm creating a custom dashboard which consists of several searches on one page. I want to head each search with a different title explaining to the end user what each search is. At present I am simply using the StaticContentSample module to print a simple, plain text title. How can I format the text to make it bold or larger etc? The plain text is swamped by the detail and isn't very readable.

Here is what I am currently using:



Title


I tried simple putting HTML tags within the 'param' but this doesn't seem to work (it simply prints 'None') instead of any text I add.

Any suggestions?

As a bonus question, I am currently using the 'SearchBar' module with the 'Default' param to include a search string which is ready to go, the user then hits the submit button to start the job. Is there anyway I can have this search string automatically start running on page load? Visibly I mean, so the search string is still there and the job status and event viewer child modules still show as I have configured? I tried substituting hiddensearch and other modules but I lose my child modules.

Thanks for any advice. Let me know if anything isn't clear.

Please ignore the second, 'bonus question'. I've been able to use autoRun="true" to make the search run on load.

You have to either escape the HTML content in the param node

<param name="text">&lt;b&gt;Title&lt;/b&gt;</param>

or put it into a CDATA node:

<param name="text"><![CDATA[ <b>Title</b> ]]></param>
