Global Field on Layout and Quick Search
This from TS_OZ:
Yes it is totally possible to use a global field on a layout to operate using the Quick Find function. Quick Find is scriptable. Maybe you want to start a different thread to get clues on how to do this?

I'm figuring this means that a quick Search could be triggered on exit (after typing text) using the Perform Quick Search script step. The documentation for this step and the Get(Quick Search Text) function refers to text typed in the Quick Search field in the status bar. I'm uncertain how to make a global field perform this way. Any hints are appreciated.
The simplest solution would be to create a global text field and a button with the following script attached to it:
Perform Quick Find [ your_table::your_global_field ]
