Substitute 1-for-1? No. Native IBO has an entire searching subsystem built
in (a Search mode built into the dataset, supported by controls -
searchbar, searchedit, incsearch, etc.) It's not of the kind "a control
that searches a dataset", but rather a whole interface that is designed to
search the database.

I don't use InfoPower myself nowadays, but the TIBO* (i.e.
TDataset-compatible) components should work more or less transparently with
anything designed to operate on TDataset. Whatever you did before with
TQuery you should be able to do with TIBOQuery.
