There are a number of ways to do this. Here is a possible script
Go To Layout ["Student" (Student) // Assumes layout and table name is Student
Enter Find Mode //Notice no find criterial
Go To Field [ Student::StudentName ]
This will go to the layout, enter find mode and put the user in the name field. Make sure that there is a button to Perform find on the layout. A cancel button is also a good idea. The cancel button can return the user to Browse mode or be scripted to enter Browse mode and return to your button screen.
You can add Tooltips to give the user instructions. I would suggest doing this on the button that starts the process.
Wow, that was as easy as I thought. I must have looked at the list of script steps 50 times and didn't see "Enter find mode". Thanks!
Christine. I often put in "test" in so that the same button enters find mode AND performs the find.
If ( Get ( WindowMode ) = 1 // find mode )
