Summary

Exit application script step recursion

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12v4

Operating system version

Windows XP

Description of the issue

Exit application script step leads to infinite recursion, if run indirectly. If I exit filemaker app through script ShutdownA.

File A - script: ShutdownA -> Perfrom Script ShutdownB

File B - script: ShutdownB -> Exit Application

Exit Application also fires OnRecordLoad script, if it is configured. I think it should not fire load on exiting.

Steps to reproduce the problem

File A - script: ShutdownA -> Perfrom Script ShutdownB from File B
File B - script: ShutdownB -> Exit Application

Expected result

Close all files and exit filemaker

Actual result

Infinite loop

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error, only waiting cursor

Configuration information

Filemaker Server and Client 12v4.

Workaround

Press esc and close files manually, or use close file script steps before exit application.
