Description of the issue

GetLayoutObjectAttribute doesn't work on web viewer in WebDirect as documented:
https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/docs/13/en/fm13_webdirect_guide.pdf
"When GetLayoutObjectAttribute acts on a web viewer in FileMaker WebDirect, the content and source attributes return the same value, a URL."
Returned value is empty with no error.

Sample file attached.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Execute in WebDirect.

See attachment.

Expected result

"When GetLayoutObjectAttribute acts on a web viewer in FileMaker WebDirect, the content and source attributes return the same value, a URL."
https://fmhelp.filemaker.com/docs/13/en/fm13_webdirect_guide.pdf

or at least a non-zero error result.

Actual result

"", empty, NULL, nothing; error result 0.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

0

Configuration information

Server 13.

Workaround

Insert from URL doesn't help in the case I needed because
the site I really need it for redirects or FileMaker can;t follow the site certificate; I only get a "page has moved result."
