I have a search form called "Find Downloads". There is "Find" button. When I click find, if exist, it will open another form, if not, the search form will stayed, not closed

Now I want  the search form close itself if it finds something and open another form. If not find, just stay in the same search form.

So far the Find button trigger
 is  like that

:parameter.G_query_find := 'TRUE';
:parameter.G_query_find := 'FALSE';

How to modify it to have my purpose?

I don't know what happens in  'app_find.find'  but if  you open 'another form'  bij means of OPEN_FORM('another form') , you could try 'NEW_FORM('another form').

Exits the current form and enters the indicated form.
