In this video we’ll add a search database feature to our treebase app.

What do you do when you want to find a specific name in the customers database? In this video we’ll add a Search menu to the top of the screen and open a new window that allows us to type in a last name and search the database.

We’ll then clear the treeview and return the results.

We’ll also add a reset feature that lets us reset the treeview with all the records.

Python Code: treebase.py
