Data Viewer does not always display the current value of Field Find Request


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

OS X 10.9.5

Description of the issue

When watching a script run with the Data Viewer window open the values for the second find request are not display accurately. The field value appears to be empty. However, it is possible to use the record slider in the tool bar to move back and forward between records. After moving away to the first find request and moving back to the second find request the field value is displayed.

The issue is only seen in one of the fields. Other fields are displaying the correct data.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. A script which creates multiple find requests. This script gets a list and then loops through the list using set field ["state"; getValue( $state ; $i ) ]
2. Open the debugger
3. Start the script
4. Watch the field values to see if they are set.
5. On the second loop, in my circumstances, the field value does not appear to be set (and that causes me concern). However, moving back and forth between find requests causes the data viewer to update and the correct value appears.

Expected result

We expect the Data Viewer to display the current value of the field.

Actual result

The Data Viewer is not displaying the current value of the field

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

no error messages


refreshing the data viewer display by moving back and forward through the find requests.
