Here you can see the field and the settings in the Inspector.
I also recorded a QT movie, showing the problem.
No script triggers on the layout. The field does have an outo enter removing format from text.
Did you executed your script step by step with Script debugger, just to see if any script triggers could be the culprit ?
Suppose an OnRecordLoad trigger that perform a Go to Field [Next] for instance. It could be the expected behavior, since Go to Field step in a script always ignored the Data Entry Allowance option, whereas a Go to Field invoked by a simple step button always took care about it.
Thank you for your post.
The suggestions by "Fred" are excellent (Thank you!), and I don't see a reply from you.
If you are still having the issue, I would like to see a copy of your file so I can determine what is occurring. Check your Inbox at the top of this page for instructions where to send a copy/clone of your file.
Hi. Whilst this thread is a little old I have the same problem in a slightly different scenario. If anyone is still listening I'd be curious to get feedback.
In my scenario I am working in a portal. In a script which is in a button that overlays the fields I do the following.
I assign the active portal row number to a local variable $portalrow, then Go to Related Record on the same layout, then go back to the portal via Go to Object and then use Go to Portal Row $portalrow. After the completion of the script (which works to that point) it selects one of the fields in the portal row and puts the cursor in to the field for editing. However ALL fields in that row have Field Entry in browse mode disabled. I can get around it by navigating to another object or turning on the "select entire contents" option in the Go to Portal Row step. However that is not the point of course! How can this occur? It appears to be true bug unless someone can postulate the justification for this action.
Love some feedback...
What version of FileMaker Pro are you using?
What operating system are you using?
Is the file local or hosted?
Are there any script triggers with the layout(s)?
Solution is all Mac. Hosted on FM Pro 15 server. No script triggers. Mac OS 10.12.x.
Thank you for the additional information.
As "Fred(CH)" mentioned (Thank you!), using Go To Field within a script bypasses the Field Entry option as this allows the developer to control access to the field.
