Summary

File name uses case of file name types, not actual file name

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13.0v5

Operating system version

OS X 10.9.5, 10.10, etc.

Description of the issue

When you open a file in a way that allows you to modify the case of the file name (Open remote, or using a URL), FileMaker functions don't display the file name in the case the file actually has, but rather uses the case used when specifying the file name.

Steps to reproduce the problem

File > Open remote... Select a file. Before clicking open, change the case in the Network File Path.

Test result by looking at the window name (if it's not changed by script), or via Get ( FilePath ) or Get ( FileName ).

Expected result

MyFileNameIsInCamelCase

Actual result

myfileNAMEISINcamELcasE

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

N/A

Workaround

Avoid mistyping the case...
