Thank you for the post.
Development and Testing is aware of this behavior inconsistency between FileMaker Go 11 and FileMaker Go 12. I have attached your post to the original report.
Another forum report on this issue can be found here:
When more information becomes available, I will let you know.
This was a couple of months ago. Any progress on this stupid bug yet?
Thank you for the reply.
Testing is aware of the issue, and the information was forwarded to Development. Additionally, I added your comments to the report.
If additional information becomes available, then I will post back to this thread at that time.
This one drives me bonkers, but here is the fix I have applied that seems to work.
Create a text field and drop that field onto your layout.
Hide the field behind something else.
Untick browse mode, find mode and goto using TAB (Not sure you need the last one). I have also set the option to not allow the user to modify the value (again not sure if that is necessary).
Now write a script
Go to Field [ ] and select the name of the field - I called mine 'Focus'
Now attach that script as a trigger on the OnModify option
Works a treat for me.
