I have have two panes each containing a view. But, these views are and exposed filter and it's fields/results. How can I make these views aware of each other? I want results of the exposed filtered view to be displayed in the other fields pane.

I'm assuming this would be done through relationships.

Exposed filters are only linked to the view they were exposed on.

I haven't done this before, but I think the correct method would be:

  1. Create a view
  2. Expose any of the filters you need to on that view (not a separate one)
  3. In the advanced settings of that view, set "Exposed form in block" to yes
  4. Add the block to your panel (not a separate views pane)
  • I want them to be in separate panes so the results can be outputted horizontally to the exposed filters instead of below. I'm wondering if I could use relationships to achieve this.

  • You can add the exposed block in a separate pane than the view in panels to get that result. When adding content to your pane, look under Miscellaneous for the exposed block. It will be called "Exposed form: viewname" IIRC Aug 7, 2011 at 17:24

Use a single View, and expose its filters. Under the exposed filters settings, you can choose to expose them as a block. When doing so, the exposed filters from won't show up above the view's results. Display the view in a pane and it's exposed filters block in another.

Note: Relationships are used to bring data from additional base tables (in Views speech, not in SQL) related to the main base table used for the view. For instance, to bring data from the user table related to the main node table. Once you have added one, you can filter on a relationship' fields.
