Re-trigger Drop-Down Menu to Display


     I'm wondering if anyone knows a good way to get a drop-down menu to display again once it's disappeared.  For instance, if you double-click in a field instead of single-click, the drop-down will appear and then immediately disappear.  I'm looking for a way to get it to show up again.

     Specifically, I'm trying to develop a script that uses the OnObjectEnter trigger.  When the user enters the field, I need to run a script to check for certain criteria.  The problem is that once the script runs, the drop-down is gone and I can't get it to pop back up for the user to select from.  I tried leaving the field and then returning to it again at the end of the script, but of course this just makes it run the OnObjectEnter script again and gets me stuck in a loop.

     Unfortunately, in this case, it's been requested to specifically use a drop-down instead of a pop-up, which I think might solve the problem.

     I am using FM13.

     Thanks in advance!
