Splunk Search

Is there a code example to add a drilldown for a column chart to display a table?

We are using Splunk 6.0 version and trying to add drilldown to column chart to display table. I searched examples related to this but i did not find any code related to it.

Column chart is form aggregated values by day. on click it should display details in table format for that day.

Here are column chart search string
index="perf"(sourcetype="metrics") source="PERF" measure="Transaction over 5 sec"|eval Day = strftime(_time,"%x")| chart sum(metric.count) by Day

On click of any column it should take to new page with this search results of that day.
index="perf"(sourcetype="metrics") source="PERF" measure="Transaction over 5 sec" |table metric.tran, metric.count, metric.avg

I have installed Splunk App UI examples but it is not showing any code. Please provide documentation how to do this.

Try something like this:

<form>
  <label>DrilldownChart</label>
  <description/>
  <row>
    <chart>
      <searchString>index="perf" (sourcetype="metrics") source="PERF" measure="Transaction over 5 sec"|eval Day = strftime(_time,"%x")| chart sum(metric.count) by Day</searchString>
      <earliestTime>-7d@h</earliestTime>
      <latestTime>now</latestTime>
      <option name="charting.chart">column</option>    
      <option name="charting.drilldown">all</option>
      <drilldown>
        <link target="_blank"><![CDATA[search?q=index="perf"(sourcetype="metrics") source="PERF" measure="Transaction over 5 sec"  | table metric.tran, metric.count, metric.avg&earliest=$earliest$&latest=$latest$]]></link>
      </drilldown>

If simple XML refer this link:
http://answers.splunk.com/answers/149839/multiple-drilldown-from-a-chart-to-a-table-to-a-table

If advanced XML, then include this:

<module name="FlashChart">
    <param name="width">100%</param>
    <module name="ViewRedirector">
      <param name="viewTarget">flashtimeline</param>
    </module>
</module>

Thank you for your response. I believe we are using simple xml. I tried the example you provided but it did not work as expected.here is the my code.

index="perf"(sourcetype="metrics") earliest=-7d@h source="PERF" measure="Transaction over 5 sec"|eval Day = strftime(_time,"%x")| chart sum(metric.count) by Day column all
