BLOX DROPDOWN - FILTER OPTIONS

cartercjb

I referenced this KB article to create a BLOX dropdown list as a filter. Here is a screenshot of my dashboard:

The BLOX code I used to create the dropdown is at the bottom of this post. I want to filter the available drop down options to only show those that have data associated with them in the charts below. The reason is because the dropdown list contains a ton of available options, most of which result in no data, as seen here:

Hi @cartercjb 

If I am not mistaken you can add a widgetfilter to only show 'Service Code' when the count of a measure is higher then 0.

Example:

Without filter it shows 5 items:

HamzaJ_0-1650490021072.png

With filter it shows only 3

HamzaJ_1-1650490066661.png

In my case 'Ligdagen' is filtered on >0
