Find Checkbox

Recommended Posts

I saw this topic posted in the past, but I could not find it any more or anywhere else.

Anyway, my question is how can I search for checkboxes. The checkbox is using a simple value list which is "Y".

I can make a script to find checking or empty checkboxes such as:

Find Mode

Set checkbox = "Y" (or set checkbox = "=")

Perform Find

And assign this script to a button called Find checking Check box/Find Empty Checkbox

But I want to have GENERIC Find button, but the problem is I can not type "=" in the checkbox to find the checkbox that has not been checked.

Any advise?

Thank you

Then how do I search for the checkbox(es) that have been NOT checked without using script?

Any idea?

Without a script all I can suggest is to find all the records that have been checked then use omit.

Otherwise you could do a duplicate layout with the field formatted as text-not a checkbox-where you could enter"=". This would require only a very simple script.

What have you got against scripts anyway?

If you use a separate layout for finds, then you can format the field as Radio buttons or a Pop-up menu, using a new value list:



Selecting the = in Find mode will be the same as typing = in a plain text field. I suppose you'll still need to script the find to move from the viewing layout to the search layout and back.
