      User input of search term for perform find script step

      Post

      Hi

       

      I want to use a script to perform a find so that I can easily get an initial display of found records in a tabular layout, before continuing with the script to return to the original form layout having placed the cursor in the record I want to display there. My script looks like this:

      Go to Layout [blah]

      Enter Find Mode [Pause] { this is the point at which the user keys the search term in to the appropriate field }

      Perform Find []

      View As [View as Table]

      Pause/Resume Script [Indefinitely]

      Go to Layout [original layout] 

       

      What I am finding is that the search term I key in when the script pauses is replaced by the current contents of the clipboard.

       

      I cannot figure out why this should be so. Can anyone help?
