The confusing part, and the risk for error, is when there is name text on

This confusion should be very limited now as it switches

I now include the latest search fragment into the displayed
name of the active patient as seen in the attached

Running from CVS... after an initial patient is loaded, an unsuccessful search creates problems further down.

Find "kirk" ... Kirk is displayed

        Kirk, Capt. James Tiberius

Now I want to search for "uhura"... click in search box. Cursor inserts, and fragment refreshes to

        Kirk, Capt. James Tiberius [kirk]

--> instead of cursor-insert can the default action be to select-all text, this way it is one less action to clear the field to input a new search?

Delete text and search for "uhura" --- unsuccessful --- choose "Go back" but now Kirk remains in focus with his name displayed as

        Kirk, Capt. James Tiberius [uhura]

Press cursor-up, search box refreshes to reveal last search


I then searched (again) on uhura and have the nasty feeling that on my first attempt it was Kirk (!) who was offered to me in the list of search matches, but I could not reproduce this unless there is something you think that could explain it in the code that may need to be adjusted.

Then I returned to the search box and by keeping what was already there

                Kirk, Capt. James Tiberius [uhura]

I hit "enter" and after I did not get any matches on the above and clicked "Go back" the search box was of course updated to

        Kirk, Capt. James Tiberius [Kirk, Capt. James Tiberius [uhura]]
