I'm using an Exposed Contextual Filter in a view. It's working nicely; however for aesthetics, we'd like to remove the Apply button and have the view change when the pull down does. How might I accomplish this?

Thanks to both of you Lance and agargy below. Yes, hide the Apply button by checking 'Hide submit button'.

This is a standard feature. Go to the "Exposed Form" settings on your view and click "Settings" next to "Exposed form styles". I don't remember the correct name of the option but i think you get it when you're there.

    Under Advanced -> Exposed Form -> Settings -> You'll find an option called "Autosubmit". Check it.

  • Thanks to both of you +Lance and +agargy. I'd mark this answer correct, but I have to wait three more minutes. In any case. Thanks again. I posted a 'follow up' section above with a screen shot showing someone else where to click.

    That works fine if you have a dropdown or similar, but how do you hide it if the exposed filter is a text input? Auto-submit is not an option in that case.
