    Default Replacement for Alpha Sports style Browse

    I like the style of the Alpha Sports Customer form. You can quick filter A-Z and select what field you want to search/sort -- its all a very nice setup. But I hated having to revisit the code every time I wanted to apply that functionality to another form or application. So I did some work on the code to make it universal, so the objects can be dropped into any form without modification.

    I put this all in an attached PDF, its easier to bring up this PDF and use the text capture to drag-drop the code into your new form. I don't profess (yet) to be an expert in xbasic, so be sure to test and tweak if needed. If anyone wants the objects themselves, I will make them available.

    With the ability to add controls to the control library we probably don't need this anymore.

    Well, I use this on many dbf I have created and I always have to go back and start from scratch although it is
    easier everytime. I wanted to see how steve did it here in the Code archive, but no Code! What can you do.
    There is a slight difference in the supercontrol and the one Steve is talking about in that it is tied to a variable
    which you can then switch at will from first name to last name or middle name to find someone. May be that is
    a question I could ask is how to get the Alphabet supercontrol to point to a variable like that.

    I was able to find that document in my backups, from January 2006. It is re-attached. That was a very long time ago, I do not work on Desktop apps anymore so I have no idea what the code in the attachment does. I do hope it isn't embarrassing.

    Thanks a lot Steve its really good. I appreciate it and I am sure others will also.
    Now If I could only get you to comment your code on XML export I would be set. As it is I will
    have to puzzle it out as I really need it. Too bad you couldn't give us a little dbf that shows
    how it really works. Just wishing but I really think it would help more now than when you originally
    brought it out I think it was sort of ahead of its time.
    Thanks Again.
