In English, It's called "quick find".
You can use the perform quick find script step (located just below Perform Find) and reference a regular field on your layout as the source of the search criteria you would otherwise have entered into that spot in the status area tool bar.
Perform Quick Find [Table::Field]
This is what I am looking for. Thanks again for your time and effort. (Still struggling with translations from time to time).
Sorry to take more of your time.
There seems to be a difference, the quick find in the status tool bar area seems to search threw all the fields with status "quick find". And the script step "perform quick find" works fine, but only for one field at the time.
Or am I making a mistake in my way f thinking?
I think you may have the wrong script step.
What you describe sounds typical of Perform Find, not Perform Quick Find...
I am sure I have the right script step. But perhaps I am thinking the wrong way.
The script step is; perform quick find [MyTable::MyField]
But, does this mean I have to create an extra field which contains the search criteria?
MyTable::MyField would be the field into which you enter your search criteria. You'd put that field where you need it and use a script to perform this one line script.
O.K. That is clear Phil, I was thinking the wrong way. I thought that MyTable::MyField was the field to perform the find on.
You provided me a nice solution a few weeks ago in which I can perform a find after every keystroke, I think it would be nice to combine these two.
Thanks a lot Phil.
