Subject RE: [IBO] programatically setting search-criteria
Author Kaputnik
Thanx Andreas.

I was using OnPrepareSQL and the WhereItems before, but as this solution is
meant for saving specific search-criteria into a convenient drop-down-list I
would like to make it a bit more generic, so the thing with the
where-clauses doesn't fit that good. I will stick with ReadSearch and
WriteSearch and add my own parsed bits into wht the user already entered and
store them that way. I was just hoping that accessing the search-criteria
was a bit more comfortable, but this will do anyway.
