    richmalm

      Summary

      Print or show repetition $$Var on screen

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      12

      Operating system version

      iOS 6, OSX and Windows

      Description of the issue

      You can not show $$Var[1], $$var[2], $$var[3].....$$var[n] on screen. You can only show $$var.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Just create

      ex
      set variable: $$var[1] = 3
      set variable: $$var[2] = 5

      On layout: <<$$var>>     shows 3

      and then...
      On layout: <<$$var[1]>>     shows nothing
      On layout: <<$$var[2]>>     shows nothing

      Expected result

      On layout: <<$$var[1]>>     3
      On layout: <<$$var[2]>>     5

      Actual result

      On layout: <<$$var[1]>>     shows nothing
      On layout: <<$$var[2]>>     shows nothing

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      none

      Configuration information

      none

      Workaround

      Orignial:
      set variable: $$var[1] = 3
      set variable: $$var[2] = 5

      I have to put it into another variable:
      set variable: $$var1 = $$var[1]
      set variable: $$var2 = $$var[2]

      The repeated variables i shown on the screen
      On layout: <<$$var[1]>>     shows nothing
      On layout: <<$$var[2]>>     shows nothing

      The new variables i shown on the screen
      On layout: <<$$var1>>     3
      On layout: <<$$var2>>     5
