Title

Kiosk Mode Script Caching

Post

It appears that scripts are cached in databases configured to run in kiosk mode.  Is this by design or a bug?  To see what I'm talking about:

 

Create a database

Create a read only user

Create a script:

     If[Get ( LayoutName ) = "A"]

          Pause/Resume Script [Duration (seconds): 5]

          Go to Layout ["B"]

          Exit Script (or Halt Script)

     Else

          Pause/Resume Script [Duration (seconds): 5]

          Go to Layout ["A"]

     End If

Create a layout called A with a script trigger OnLayoutEnter to run the script above

Duplicate the layout above and name it B

Duplicate it again and name it C

Create a kiosk mode copy of this database

Upload it to a FM server

 

Okay, now load the database with the read only user credentials and you should see the screen cycle between layouts A & B.  Login from another computer as the Admin and edit the script to Go to Layout ["C"] instead of B.  Save the script and watch the screen continue to cycle between layouts A & B on the original computer.  What causes this and how can I edit the script in such a way that any kiosks running the database will run the scripts as they are at the time they are being run?  This behaves as expected when not in kiosk mode.
