      Odd field behavior in Header/Footer depending on Scrollposition

      Post

      I'm about to report a bug, but first I'd like to know if somebody else has the same problem/can reproduce it:

       

       

      Setup:

      - New, empty Filemaker DB with two fields ("name"/"filter")

      - New Layout, 3 Parts (Header/Body/footer), name-field in Body-part and filter-field in Header or Footer

      - Creating some 30-40 records (number/empty or filled irrelevant)

       

      Bug:

      - view as List

      - activate a random record (preferably near the beginning or end of the list)

        the activated Record shows a black bar at the left (I know you know that ;-)

      - enter some text into the filter-field which is in the Header/Footer

      - now: scroll away! Yes, I mean it, scroll away at least 2 or 3 times the window height (no joke)
      - the text in the filter-field should still be visible

      - click into the filter-field and my text disappears and only reappears if I start writing into the field

       

      Problem:

      Well, you could say it's not a big problem with the use mentioned above, but I have have a global field in my header with a popup-menu and a scripttrigger acting as a filter for the list, and scrolled away to far, the popup menu can't be opened anymore!

       

       

      My Environment:

      FileMakePro Advanced 10.0v1 

      Mac OS X 10.5.7

      iBook G4 (PowerBook6,7)

       

      Any ideas on how to fix this or am I the only one?
