    Issue with onObjectValidate trigger



      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.
