Use ReadSearchCriteria() and WriteSearchCriteria() methods of the dataset.
They give you control over these settings without touching the control. You
will just have to parse the stringlist and write it back in. You will also
need to learn the pattern it uses to identify the various controls. make
some settings and then read the criteria for it and teach yourself its
format and then you are ready to go from there on your own.
