HI @Sly 

It would be helpfull if you could share your blox-script. In your first post it sounds like the JSON is not valid (a comma to much or a ) to little and it reverts back). Seems you have fixed that. If you can share your script I can have a look at the dropdown.

Hi @HamzaJ  thank you for your willingness to assist. 

Please see below my script and the items field is called "name". 

{
"style": {},
"script": "",
"title": "",
"titleStyle": [
{
"display": "none"
}
],
"showCarousel": true,
"carouselAnimation": {
"showButtons": false
},
"body": [
{
"type": "Container"
},
{
"type": "ColumnSet",
"separator": false,
"spacing": "default",
"columns": [
{
"type": "Column",
"width": "170px",
"items": [
{
"type": "TextBlock",

Hi @Sly 

This is incorrect:

"filterName": "{panel:name}",
 
It should not be dynamic it should be the name of the filter. In this case it should just be "name":
"filterName": "name",
 
Make sure that on a dashboard-level the filter is defined the same way

In regards to the dashboard level, im not too sure if this is what you mean. 
 
please see attached image where image 1 is on the main dashboard with a filter and image 2 is the dilter on the blox widget 
 
and the output is still empty

Hmm...

I copied pasted your code and for me it works. I can pick an option, press apply and the filter gets adjusted (in the dashboard, in the widget it does not work). 

Btw. where is the drop-down in your image? Did you center it? If you do not see it all, try adjusting the configuration-page in the widget editor.

For me the code and the configuration work. Were you able to make it work?
