No hover state in drop-down with placeholder text


FileMaker Pro


FMPA14 64-bit

Operating system version

Windows 7 Professional, Service Pack 1

Description of the issue

When I added placeholder text to a drop-down list I was not able to assign formatting for the hover state.

Steps to reproduce the problem

I removed the placeholder text and the hover state worked correctly. I added the placeholder text back in and the hover state failed to work again.

Expected result

That hover state (and all other appropriate states) will work on all field controls regardless of placeholder text.

Actual result

Hover state did not work while using placeholder text.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No error message


I set the field (displayed as a drop-down) with fake placeholder text via a script triggered with OnLayoutEnter.
