Issue with onObjectValidate trigger


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

It appears that although an onObjectValidate script trigger exists, and is returning false, it will not prevent users from pressing a button with a script. In the sample database at the link, I have included instructions on a text label for the intended layout on how to reproduce this issue.

Please assist.

Steps to reproduce the problem

OnObjectValidate script that returns false, pressing a button with a script from the invalidated field.

Expected result

button cannot be pressed and/or script on button is not executed

Actual result

button is pressed and script runs, but does not run according to it's script step, breaking the script resulting in erroneous data.
