Clearing Search Values

Use the SearchClear() method which is part of the Field class to clear search values on a particular search key field. This is how you can reset search parameters specified by a user when they press the Return to Search button.

You can call this using the shortcut notation:

RECORD.FIELD.SearchClear();

Or you can declare a field class and then call the method.

Put this code in the SearchInit event.

If you are clearing a number of fields, I recommend creating a simple function (e.g. ResetSearch) in FieldFormula and calling that function rather than putting a single line of code in the SearchInit event for each field you are clearing. Just makes maintenance a little bit simpler as you only need one function and one call.
