Hi Phaelix and welcome to the forum.
In IWP script triggering only works if a running script is what sets the trigger off, not user interaction. So you will need some kind of button to take the user to the layout and then the trigger will run. Or you could just include the Enter Find mode in the search button and skip the onLayoutLoad step altogether.
IWP will run a script on opening the database, so when it opens it can go to your Search layout and then the trigger will run.
I hope this helps.
Thanks Orlando, I'll implement a splash page or something.
This user group seems really helpful and well-informed... very reassuring :smileyhappy:
Glad I could help Phaelix.
