Is there a way for me to stuff data in the search box automatically and have the search execute the same way as if a user had typed in the data.
User enters a search criteria which produces a list of edit candidates. User selects a record to edit, causing a forward navigation to an edit screen, and performs the edit. When they come back to the list, they must currently re-enter the search criteria. Request is to have it remain populated with the last entry.
