FileMaker Pro Help - Wrong information about Script Triggers: OnWindowOpen/Close
Mac OS X - 10.7.3
The Help file for FileMaker Pro provides the wrong information about the Script Triggers: OnWindowOpen and OnWindowClose.
On the page headed: Setting Up Script Triggers, there is a diagram listing all 20 Script Triggers, with OnWindowOpen and OnWindowClose at the bottom. Alongside the list are flags to show 'Before Event' or 'After Event'.
These flags are shown the wrong way round, as OnWindowOpen should be flagged as 'After Event' and OnWindowClose should be flagged as 'Before Event'.
This is an issue with the contents of the FileMaker Pro Help file.
I have checked the actual Script Triggers, by setting them within a test file and the OnWindowOpen is definitely a 'Post' Event trigger, whilst the OnWindowClose is definitely a 'Pre' event trigger.
The 'Pre/Post' setting for the OnWindowOpen Script Trigger should be the same as for OnFirstWindowOpen and the setting for OnWindowClose should be the same as for OnFirstWindowClose, but on the Help page they are shown having the opposite settings.
This is an error in the FileMaker Pro Help file as distributed with FMPA 12.0.1
Thank you for your post.
I have sent the information to our Documentation manager for review.
