The search criteria and results of the Search control are defined in a related Search form. The Forms Designer window is enabled by the mandatory Select a Form property.
The controls enabled to be included in the Search form control are:
Combo, Date, Label, Money, Number, Text box and Yes/No.
All other controls are not supported.
Expand the drop-down list and select one of the three options.
•New search Form: this will open a new Forms Designer window where you can enter all the controls required.
The context of the form is the entity where the search is being performed. When it is saved, it will be stored as a reusable form. This way, it can be related to a Search control in another form. Always give this new form a Display name.
•None: when no form has been selected. However a form must be selected in order for the control to work.
•Select a search Form: choose from a list of reusable forms previously defined.
The form is divided in two sections, the search criteria and the search results. These sections are independent of one another allowing you to drag-and-drop the same attributes of the entity to each section, if needed.
Give this new form a Display name by clicking the Properties option in the Ribbon. Save the form and close it to return to the main form.
When the end user click the search icon in the Work Portal the Search form will display.
Enter the information and select the desired record from the results returned by the search.
