Summary

FileMaker Go 13, Insert from Device Photo Library Hangs on "No Browse Mode" checked field

Product

FileMaker Go

Version

13.0.4

Operating system version

iOS 7.1.1

Description of the issue

The Insert from Device [Photo Library] fails if the target container field is marked as non-enterable in browse mode.  The problem does not occur with other "Insert from Device" commands.  FileMaker Go goes into spinning wheel mode and never comes back.  I have only tested this on a hosted database.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Put a container field from the same table occurrence as the current layout on the layout and uncheck the "Browse Mode" field-entry checkbox in the Inspector.
Create a button on the same layout that does:

Insert from Device [table::containerField ; Type: Photo Library]

Click the button.  Get the spinning wheel of death...

Expected result

Should bring up the list of images and videos in the iOS device's Photo Library

Actual result

Spinning wheel of death.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error messages.

Configuration information

Windows Server 2008 r2 running FileMaker Server 13.0v2 is hosting the database

Workaround

There are 2 workarounds.

1. Make the container object on the layout enterable in browse mode
2. Use a script to do a Go To Field before doing the Insert from Device
