FWKS-5084Sterland has made several behavioural changes to the Customer and Product finders. These changes apply to all activities that use the Product and Customer finders and are summarised as follows:

(tick) The Customer and Product finders now force the user to enter a search string before returning a result list.

(tick) The finders do not auto find unless criteria is passed to the finder from the parent activity.

(tick) In Point of Sales, Sales Orders and Purchase Orders, the Customer and Product finders  remember the search criteria entered by the user and re-display the criteria and results when the finder is reused from within the activity.  (Note: it does not remember the criteria across the application - if you exit the activity and start again, then the finder criteria is cleared)

(tick) If the user enters a value into the Product field first then that will be used as the search criteria. If nothing is entered, then the last entered search criteria will be used.

(tick) In the Product Finder, the Qty columns are hidden unless a branch is selected.
