    OnFirstWindowOpen event will not always fire



      OnFirstWindowOpen event will not always fire


      FileMaker Pro


      Advanced 11v3

      Operating system version

      Win XP SP3

      Description of the issue

      Db A uses db B (listed in external sources). Db B has a OnOpen script C (set in File Options dialog). When A uses a relation to B or runs a script from B, B is opened implicitely, but remains hidden. C will not be run (appreciated). If now the user explicitely opens B (using menu item 'Window->Show Window->B' or using menu item 'File->Open..'), C will run, _unless_ A has called some other script of B before. I think this is pretty undesired behavior. In the script debugger the internal event name is visible (OnFirstWindowOpen), which I think, suits very well. However, then C should be called regardless, whether some other script of B has been called before.

      This way, the user has the unpleasant possibility to open B without its start script being executed.

      What are explanations or workarounds to this?
      Thanks for your help!
