New Window Shows First Record Briefly Before Creating New Record

Post

     Hi All,

     One very simple issue that's just bugging me ever so slightly which I'm hoping someone will have a work around to get rid of it.

     I have a script that when you click on a button, it opens a new window, re-sizes the window, goes to a different layout and creates a new record. This all works normally as expected, however there is a brief period there where the user is displayed the data from the first record in that table before the new record is created. Users on low bandwidth connections to the FileMaker Server see the record for longer while the remainder of the layout loads and the new record is created etc.

     My script looks something like this (I've stripped out the other stuff which is going on since it's irrelevant):

New Window
Go to Layout ["Contact Record Details" (CONTACTRCD)]
Adjust Windows [Resize to Fit]
New Record/Request
     Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can avoid the user seeing the first record while waiting for the layout to load and create a new record?
      
     Thanks,
     Michael
