Conditional formatting on a checkbox does not work in FileMaker Go


FileMaker Go



Operating system version

iOS 4 and iOS 3.2

Description of the issue

I defined conditional formatting to fill in a color for a checkbox. It works fine in FM 10, but fails on the iPhone 4 and iPad versions of FileMaker Go. This is important on the iPhone 4 in particular as it is difficult to see the "X" in the checkbox and I wanted to make it dark grey to reinforce the visual for when the checkbox was marked. Thank you.  -Doug.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1) Add a checkbox to a layout
2) Define Conditional Formatting for the checkbox
3) Set the conditional formatting to use a Fill color when the condition is TRUE, that is, when Self = 1.
4) Use the form and toggle the value of the checkbox to see if the fill color is applied.

Expected result

The checkbox should change the fill color per the Conditional Formatting rule that was defined.

Actual result

The checkbox does not change due to the conditional formatting.
