Macro to catch user-entered string ('Searchable' field)

Hi all,

This seems a bit tough to me as I am not very good at VBS. Basically I have been trying to catch a string the user enters to the Search field - and it is getting more complex, because I need to have the values of that tiny 'Searchable' field users may open on certain objects. In the screenshot below, for instance, I would need to get the value '>77' as a string.

A good try was a code like this:

currentSearchString = ActiveDocument.Evaluate("GetFieldSelections(Suppliers)")

which, however, only returns the Supplier names, not the filter expression.

The next big thing I am trying to figure out is where to 'listen' for the event of users typing in values.

Thanks.
