Subject RE: [IBO] IB_IncSearch ClearOnExit
Author Jason Wharton
Ok I think I know what you are saying. The OnExit never does happen because
as far as that form is concerned the last control is focus is still the
control (for the form) that has the focus. It may be possible for me to
hook into the form being deactivated and clear the control under that
circumstance but that wouldn't be good in all cases... Someone may want to
activate a different form without losing their search criteria.

I would have to say in this case you need to programatically control your
forms behavior so that it does a call to ClearSearchCriteria when the form
is deactivated.
