    Default Locate Text

    Hello All,

    I had another post about using a field to locate text instead of a dialog box.

    Not really looking at this before, and it is pretty neat, is using the "locate text" dialog in action scripting with the on activate event of the form. It does what I want, but is there a way, to leave the dialog box open after each find??? As the input operator using the form, must use the dialog box the whole time the form is open??

    If the action scripting is convertd to inline xbasic what would be the action??

    Thanks Ed

    Take a look at the .LOCATE() method.
