    Problem editing repetition field from the web using IWP



      Problem editing repetition field from the web using IWP


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version


      Description of the issue

      My layout has repetition fields like myfield[1], myfield[2], myfield[3] etc.    If I click on any of the fields to edit, only myfield[1] can be edited.   Clicking on the others only causes a page reload.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Make a layout with separate repetition fields and use IWP.

      Expected result

      If I click any field, whether or not it's a repetition field, I should be able to edit the field's value.

      Actual result

      Page reloads, but repetition field can not be edited.


      If the repetition field is consolidated as myfield[1-4] then each of the values can be clicked and edited, but this does not give me the freedom to place each of the repetition fields anywhere on the layout.

          Thank you for your post.

          I am unable to replicate the problem.  This is what I did...

          1. On my iMac running Mac OS X 10.6.6, I launched FileMaker Pro 10.0v3 and created a Text field, "myfield", and set it for four repetitions.

          2. On my Layout, I added four fields, one for each repetition of "myfield".

          3. I entered information into the first record into each of the four fields (repetition 1, repetition 2, repetition 3 and repetition 4).

          4. I turned on Instant Web Publishing and set access for the file to all users.

          5. On another machine, I launched a web browser, entered the IP Address of my Mac, received the Instant Web Publishing screen and selected the database file.

          6. I was able to click in any of the four repetition fields for "myfield" without a problem, make changes, and submit the changes.

          Please let me know what I'm doing differently than you, and I'll try to replicate the issue here.
