Summary

IWP: Clicking checkbox text alters the checkbox state on a non-enterable field

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0V3

Operating system version

OSX 10.7.5

Description of the issue

In IWP: when a field on a layout is set to display as a checkbox (or a radio button) and made non-enterable, clicking on the box itself correctly does not do anything, clicking on the text changes the state of the checkbox.
The record is not opened, nor is the value of the field changed, yet the checkbox-state in the browsers changes.

Steps to reproduce the problem

On a new database, create a text field and a value list with a couple of fixed values. Set the text box to display as a checkbox using values from the value list, make the field non-enterable. In IWP: click on both the box itself and the text.

Expected result

Nothing should happen in both cases.

Actual result

Clicking on the box indeed does nothing, yet clicking the text alters the checkbox-state in the browser.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

Configuration information

Tested on FM Pro Advanced and server; both versions 12 have the issue under Safari, Firefox and IE
