Summary

Go to layout (Layout Name by Calculation) can break when using Layout Folders

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11.0v2 (Advanced)

Operating system version

Mac OS X

Description of the issue

If you create a Layout Folder and a Layout with the same name in a certain order, the script step Go to Layout (Layout Name by Calculation) will return error code 105.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Create a new file "Test"
2. Create a new layout folder "Articles"
3. Create a new layout "Articles"
4. Go to the first layout ("Test") and switch to form mode.
5. Go to layout mode and add a button
6. Attach the script step "Go To Layout" to the button with the following options:
Layout Name by Calculation: "Articles".
7. Go to browse mode and click on the button: nothing happens.

But if you do the opposite:
1. Create a new file "Test"
2. Create a new layout "Articles" first
3. and Create afterwards a new layout folder "Articles"
4. Go to the first layout ("Test") and switch to form mode.
5. Go to layout mode and add a button
6. Attach the script step "Go To Layout" to the button with the following options:
Layout Name by Calculation: "Articles".
7. Go to browse mode and click on the button: FileMaker will navigate to the correct layout.
