Splunk Search

Why Django drop-down selected value is not passed to the search?

Builder

I'm trying to learn Django and created a simple app. All it is supposed to do is pass the selected drop-down value to a search, namely the name of a table. When the page loads the search kicks off right away and returns nothing but when a selection is made from the drop-down the search does not run and the token is not passed to the search. If I hard code the value, the results are displayed when the page loads. Here is the entirety of the code. Any help is appreciated.

{# Boilerplate for a Django Bindings template #}
{% extends "splunkdj:base_with_app_bar.html" %}

{% load splunkmvc %}

{% block title %}{{app_name}}User Status{% endblock title %}

{% block css %}
    <!-- Style sheets are loaded here -->
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{{STATIC_URL}}{{app_name}}/custom.css" />
    <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="{{STATIC_URL}}splunkjs/css/dashboard.css" />
    <style>
        /* Define any page styles here*/
    </style>
{% endblock css %}

{% block content %}
<div class="dashboard-body container-fluid main-section-body" data-role="main">

    <div class="dashboard-header clearfix">
        <h2>User Stats</h2>
        <p class="description">A Django based status dashboard</p>

My search was much more complex than shown above. But the solution was very simple. The search read:

search="|inputlookup $SelectedTable$.csv"

Where it should have read:

search="|inputlookup $SelectedTable$.csv"|token_safe

It made all the difference in the world.

This might be a shot in the dark, but what happens if you do an eval statement before your inputlookup?

i.e. search="eval MyTable=$SelectedTable$+".csv" |inputlookup MyTable"

That didn't work, the parameter was still not passed to the search.
