    In the Applescript Tap Forms dictionary there is the following:

    search n, pl searches : A search item
    contained by forms.
    id (text, r/o) : The unique identifier of the search.
    name (text) : The name of the search.

    Is this for running a saved search, so that the result is that Tap Forms shows the records which match the criteria for the saved search?

    Also what is the syntax for this AppleScript item?

    Any help would be gratefully received.

    Hi Victor,

    It looks like I never really flushed that one out. It’s just returning exactly what you see. The search object with it’s ID and name.

    The primary use of AppleScript in Tap Forms would be to run a script within Tap Forms. And from there you can reference a search and get its records and perform some operation on the results.
