Subject Re: [IBO] TIB_LookupCombo: Indicating search is fail in incremental searching m
Author mmenaz
Geoff, instead of a event OnNotInList, what about an event that fires
every time a locate is tried, with a flag indicating if successful or
not? This could be more effective and usefull, don't you think?
I could have a IB_Text with additional lookup info on the right of the
lookup contrl, changing it's color from normal to red depending from
the locate successfulness...

btw, have you added to IBO the code that permits to change color of
the title of the grid column following the ordering item? I think it's
a really nice addition
