      enter object trigger


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      W8.1 64bit

      Description of the issue

      This is more a new feature even if effects are comparable to those of an an issue.

      Button bar has increased popovers usage.

      Most of the times some actions are required when popover opens and often this requires layout change to retrieve some data.

      In such cases popover would close and I have to reopen it manually with unpleasant video effect.

      An 'On "Before" Enter object' trigger would be welcome.

          IF the need to change layouts is to create a new record in a related table, such can be done without changing layouts and without interacting with a portal.

          If you do need to change layouts and return, but want to keep the popover open, you can give the popover panel (or a layout object located inside the popover panel) an object name and your script can use Go to object as the last step of the script in order to create the illusion that the popover stayed open.

            ok, that was the solution even if illusion is not the ideal option.
