    Description

    Solutions that have a pure GUI interface to the data sitting in a separate table require that you provide a find field for the users to be able to search the data. This solution will create a familiar search field similar to Firefox, Safari, OS X Finder, etc. All you have to do is enter your search criteria and exit the search field. Then the field trigger will find your records.
