Lost/Phantom window locks up FileMaker Pro Advanced
Operating system version
Mac OS X 10.6.8
Description of the issue
Script attached to OnRecordLoad script trigger should create an off screen window to run a process. System fails to create or find the window. Script pauses at this error and fails to complete. The error displayed is 112 "Window is missing"
Using the debugger to either force the script to continue or abort the script leaves the system non functional. Clicking the window close button or menus produces a beep, but no action. Windows won't close, scripts won't run.
Keyboard shortcuts to go into and out of layout/browse mode do work, but are not helpful.
It's as if there is a dialog or modal window that can't be found waiting for a button to be pressed.
Steps to reproduce the problem
In this case, I was working on a complex layout going into layout mode then browse mode repeatedly. Everytime I entered browse mode the script trigger ran. I had been working for quite a while and had many iterations of this before it was a problem.
System would create and find the window, complete the process.
Had to force quit FileMaker Pro Advanced
This has happened twice and produced a system crash report for both incidents. If you want I can send them to you.
Disable script trigger while working on layout.
