    FindMode: Own buttonbar to Perform Find (incl. Operators)

    olivervollmer

      i have a table contacts with more than 6000 records. These Contacts have different characteristics.

      When you make a new record, you can first decide if the Contact is a person or a society.

      After choosing the contact type over a Dropdown menu, you can choose from up to 4 additional dropdowns that has different values. The User can decide, how many conditional characteristics he choose.


      Now i want a special find mode. it works for me with the regular FM PerformFind Options, but my wish is

      to have a find mode by my own.

       

      My thought:

      I move to a new Layout (best would be a new window).

      I change to find mode.

      Now the user can choose in find mode (without the top menubar)

       

      Button: New find request

      1. Select first criteria
      2. Option to choose if you want to extend or constrain
      3. Button: New find request
      4. Select next criteria
      5. Option to choose if you want to extend or constrain
      6. Select next criteria
      7. Option to choose if you want to extend or constrain
      8. ...
      1. Perform search

      At the moment, i am not really sure how to build up these situation. I build a little example file, to better understand.


      Is there a possibility to get this ?
