      When using the contact management start up on instant web publishing the "add a note button" does not work.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Turn on IWP. Go to contact management. Under the notes section click the "add a note" button.

      Expected result

      Be able to add a note to the database.

      Actual result

      Nothing.

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      N/A

      Configuration information

      This is the script used to create the new note.  In step 2 the "freeze window" is not working with IWP.


      1. Set Variable [$ID_Contact; Value:Contact Management:k_ID_Contact]

      2. Freeze Window     (this is the grey area)

      3. Go to Layout ["Notes_Utility"(Notes)]

      4. New Record/Request

      5. Set Field [Notes::kf_ID_Contact; $ID_Contact]

      6. Commit Records/Requests [Skip data entry validation; No dialog]

      7. Go to Layout [original layout]

      8. Go to Field [notes::Text]

          Thank you for your post.

          I was able to replicate the problem on my iMac using FileMaker Pro 11.0v2 on Mac OS X 10.5.8.

          It appears the Freeze Window script step, even though should be ignored in Instant Web Publishing, is interfering with the script.  Once the Freeze Window script step is disabled, the script works correctly.

          I have reported the problem to our Development and Software Quality Assurance (Testing) departments for review.
