      Summary

      Script Trigger for Sorting in popovers closes the popover

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      13

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X

      Description of the issue

      I wanted to place a diagram in a popover. In order that the diagram is shown up correctly, I added a simple sort script which is fired by a script trigger for the popover (On object enter).

      But the popover then is only shortly flickering and disappearing immediately. Obviously the sorting of the data automatically is closing the popover.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      make a diagram, that requires sorted data
      make a popover
      place the diagram in the popover
      have a script trigger on object enter for the popover sorting the data
      click on the popover button in browse mode
      popover only flashes shortly

      Expected result

      popover is shown, data is sorted

      Actual result

      popover is not shown consistantly

      Workaround

      Workaround might be a button above the popover button which sorts the records and then goes to the object in the popover to open the popover.
