    Field Display Issue When Running Script



      Field Display Issue When Running Script


      FileMaker Pro


      12.0v3 Advanced

      Operating system version

      Mac OS 10.8.2

      Description of the issue

      When a script navigates to a nested tab control object, it sometimes displays strange graphics over certain fields.  (See attached screenshot example.) 

      These fields have one conditional statement each that turns their font color to a light brown when the Status of the record is set to "Inactive".

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Run a script that navigates to a nested tab control object containing conditional formatted fields  and then pauses (i.e. for user data entry).  The odd graphics will show up sometimes.

      Expected result

      Fields should be displayed with their data as expected.

      Actual result

      Sometimes, unexpected graphics are rendered where a field and its data should be shown.  (See attached screenshot.)

      Configuration information



      Go to another layout and then back to the affected layout; run the script again; the issue does not appear. 

      This seems to be some sort of layout refresh issue.  (BTW, I tried putting in a "Refresh Window" script step in the script, and it did not help.)
