Summary

get(WindowVisible) works differently in version 8.5 from version 11

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

8.5 and 11

Operating system version

Mac OSX Version 10.5.8

Description of the issue

In FileMaker 8.5, when you use the Adjust Window[hide] script command, the hidden window is NOT treated as the current window. The get(WindowVisible) returns 1.

In FileMaker 11, when you use the Adjust Window[hide] script command, the hidden window is treated as the current window. The get(WindowVisible) returns 0.

Can someone PLEASE inform me as to how it's supposed to work. This behavior change between versions has caused the loss of some critical data on one of my programs. Are there any other commands that work entirely opposite between these 2 versions.

Thank You.
