offer a ParamName capability on IB_IncSearch - that way the same
control can be used however you want to implement your incremental
If that proves impractical I am reluctant to introduce yet more
controls/components - we get enough comment about people getting
overwhelmed as it is.
As I mentioned, I need to improve the ParamName processing for
TIB_Edit and the other IB_* controls so that you can (optionally)
force the parameter to take effect by pressing Enter. (Should be easy
enough I think, I just have not had time to look into it.)
I actually setup the ParamName functionality to support report forms,
where a form is setup with controls attached to one or more
parameters. The user enters all the necessary parameters (perhaps
date ranges and so on) then hits a button which forces the parameter
updates to take effect and the report to run.
