Can someone recommend how to create an editable template form that is also searchable by field name?

Example editable field names:

Name

Location

Color 

Images (does not need to be searchable)

There is no built-in option to search by field names. It can be done using a simple script, though.

Let's say you have a button called "SearchField". You can add the following code to its Mouse Up event to achieve it:

 

 

var fname = app.response("Enter the field name to look up:", "", "");
if (fname!=null && fname!="") {
	var f = this.getField(fname);
	if (f==null) app.alert("There's no field with this name.");
	else if (typeof f.page=="number") this.pageNum = f.page;
	else if (typeof f.page=="object") this.pageNum = f.page[0];
}
