      Summary

      Double-Clicking portal button goes to wrong related record - SECURITY ISSUES

      Product

      FileMaker Server

      Version

      Advanced 12.0.3.327

      Operating system version

      Windows Server 2008 R3 OR Mac OS Server 10.7

      Description of the issue

      THIS IS A SERIOUS PROBLEM AS IT RAISES SECURITY ISSUES

      Got an issue with an Instant Web Publishing (IWP) function, and it actually does this in Filemaker Pro if you click really fast.

      Normally people don't click twice, but with IWP and multiple users, there can be a delay, so the frustrated user clicks more than once. The desired record normally does end up in the results, but not at the top of the list, and that is the record of focus, of course.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Double-click a button in a portal row that goes to a related record and it finds the related record plus one or more others that are not related.

      I have tried the standard go to related record, but also in a script set a variable with the record ID from the portal row, then change layouts and search for that record ID in the related table.

      Doesn't matter. If I single click, it always works right. If I double-click it gets the wrong results. Other people have reported this problem on FMForums, no fix found.

      Expected result

      It should only show the related records...

      Actual result

      It shows the related record plus extraneous records.
