Miami library gets improved "Find" form
Miami users will benefit from an improved search facility in browse forms, thanks to a request made by Dennis Polack this week. Until now, the "Find" facility on browse forms and subforms provided an "InputBox" form, where you could type in a word or number to search for. While this is quick and simple, it isn't particularly helpful.
This week we replaced it with a pop-up form. Not only does the form provide formatting facilities, it also "remembers" previous queries, so you don't have to retype them. The query strings are remembered until you quit the program.
Because the new facility is part of the standard Miami library, existing applications can have this facility included without major re-programming.
