Title

Populate new Record entry with results from unsuccessful Find

Post

Just as the default behavior for FileMaker Pro when a Find is successful is to show the first record in the Found set, I would like to have the behavior on unsuccessful Finds be to start making a new Record in Browse mode with the Find criteria pre-entered into the respective fields; I have tried to find solutions already but seem stuck on how to programmatically access the text entered into a field in Find mode (there is a function called Get(QuickFindText) but this is not associated with any field, and at any rate my users won't commonly be using Quick Find).
