Hide Object working incorrectly in Find mode.


FileMaker Pro


Filemaker 13 0v3

Operating system version

Windows 8.1

Description of the issue

Hide object does not appear to be working for "apply in find mode" when it's based on a calculation.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1) Create calculation field such as: "Case ( Get ( UserName ) = "Me"; 1; 0 ) and make sure it's unstored.

2) Apply hide object as: HideField = 0

3) Go into find mode, field has disappeared.

Expected result

Field should be visible for user "Me" in both browse and find mode, but not visible for user "Other" in either mode.

Actual result

Field is visible for user "Me" in browse but not visible in find mode.

Field is correctly hidden for user "other" in both modes.
