Script Trigger for Sorting in popovers closes the popover


FileMaker Pro



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 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.
