Set ** as search default when typing

Hi Guys,

In QV 9, when typing on a list box, I got as default **

In QV 10, I don't get the **, and have to type it...

Is there any chance to set ** as default in the search?

Thanks in advance,

Aldo.

Hello, Aldo,

What about Default Search mode "Use Wildcard Search"?

You can select this mode for sheet objects, for example.

From the QV10 manual:

"A new, default search logic has been introduced: The search string does not
need to contain leading or trailing wild cards. Instead, wildcards will be
implicit and the result set will list field values containing words where the
beginning of the word matches the search string. The old search mode can be
forced, either by a setting in the list box ('Use Wildcard Search') or by entering
a wild card manually in the search string.
This new search logic is referred to as 'Normal Search'."
