There are methods for each button on the button bar. A quick peek in the
source will show you how simple it is to invoke what they do. Most of the
work is maintaining the enabled state, etc.

Hi all,

Ok, I admit it, I dont really know how to use the search feature.
There I said it. The truth is, I have had a search component on my app
for months and I only just figured out you need a update bar as well
to make it work properly (I had been using custom update buttons).

So I figured out if you do a search for, say, clientfirstname "Bob"
you get all the records with Bob. And I also found if you clicked
search again, and then hit cancel the dataset becomes unfiltered and
all the records once again show up.

Thing is, I think my customers will have a hard time understanding
this. Is there a simple command (or a button I am missing) to clear
the search and put the dataset back to just what the sql statement

Thanks for the help. Also if theres any guides out there on using the
search bar, feel free to link them to me!
