      FM Go Field Issues - Go to next object


      FileMaker Go



      Operating system version


      Description of the issue

      When a field is defined to 'go to next object using' Tab, Return, Enter the popup keyboard on FM Go should display a NEXT button rather than a return button.

      This allows undesired data being entered into the field.

      A field defined as a number field does display a NEXT button on the keyboard and also allows text entry.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Enter any text field via FM Go

      Expected result

      Keyboard to show next in place of the return button

      Actual result

      Keyboard shows return

          Thank you for your post.

          Although the FileMaker Go Development Guide states "You can't use other field behavior options to go to the next object", this may not be perceived as an issue.  However, I have still forwarded your post to our Development and Software Quality Assurance (Testing) departments for review.
