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.)

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear


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.)
