Find Engine

Hi World :) !

In the Dev Environment - Object Designer - Find Functionality....


If I have Find as you Type switched on - I can find an Object one character at a time. So in my screenshot, typed in 'sta' and it has automatically found the Standard Text Table without adding an Enter Option or Pressing the Find First button.

Has anybody been able to find a routine (DotNet, Automation, etc) that can call a similar Search GUI for use in the RTC Environment (Using NAV 2018)? Looking for a way to look through a Customer List and Search through Customer Names - one character at a time?

With thanks

    Hi @Big_D,
    Take a look at this blog:
    I have used the multiple times with success :smile:
    You can change to code to only work with ex. Name
    For help, do not use PM, but use forum instead, perhaps other people have the same question, or better answers.

    Hi SanderDk

    Hope all is well with you!

    Wow this is a great trick - just tried it in NAV 2018 - seems to be a RTC trick as doesn't work in Classic B) !

    Thanks for the great tip o:) !
