Possible to code a Find/Find Next feature for use inside a Table Control

0 Kudos


I have a Table Control that displays many lines. Is it possible to code a Find/Find Next feature that would allow the user to enter a 'keyword' then search each line of the Table Control for existing matches?

I have provided the user with various Selection Criteria that will filter the table control results, but there are still too many lines to visually scan for the desired result.

I am guessing that I would place an input box and a 'Find' button onto my layout screen. Then in user command, I have to scroll through each line of the table control and check every value to see if the string contains 'keyword' When found, stop and display table control assigning current line as Top line?

Am I on the right track or is there a better solution already?

Kind Regards,

I've done that. It works pretty well. You might want to allow the user to search only in selected column(s) as well.
