Type Ahead Search Trigger Using Go to Field Not Working

Post

     Hi, All, I am trying to do our standard type ahead search on FM GO, but I'm not getting the refocus to the global search field at the end of the script.

     I have a global search field, g_search_all in the layout's header and a list view in the body with a calculated display field.

     I put an OnObjectModify script trigger on the global search field, so that when a character is typed the trigger executes:

          Set Error Capture [On]
          Enter Find Mode []
          Set Field [DIR::c_search_all; DIR:g_search_all]
          Perform Find []
          Go to Field [DIR::g_search_all]
          Halt Script

     I use Halt Script, and have tried Exit Script [False] to keep the cursor in the field, so the next search character can be typed.  However, the focus always seems to go to the body / display field and the keypad on GO goes away.

     How can I keep the cursor in the global search field, ready to receive another letter?

     Thanks, Tom
