    Problem With Web Viewer Only In Preview Mode



      Problem With Web Viewer Only In Preview Mode


      FileMaker Pro



      Operating system version

      Win 7x64

      Description of the issue

      I've created an Org Chart using the data protocol, and some javascript libraries that can be found at the following address:


      Everything works fantastic in Browse mode, but I need a printable version of this too, and I would like to stay in FileMaker for the printable version.  The problem that I'm running into is that my entire Org Chart disappears when I enter preview mode.

      I understand that web viewers maintain their state when switching between browse/preview mode
      I've given the web viewer a name, and can tell that it still has the proper content (using GetLayoutObjectAttribute)
      I've tried removing everything that I can from the HTML (before the JS mods happen) without success

      This problem still persists though.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Enter Browse Mode --> Chart renders fine
      Enter Preview Mode --> Chart disappears

      Expected result

      Seeing as how the web viewer is not even supposed to have to re-evaluate the contents of the web viewer when switching between browse/preview mode, I was expecting to still be able to see my chart.

      Actual result

      Web viewer appears empty
