set password as a field


FileMaker Pro


FileMaker 13

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

In the 'Send Mail' via SMTP Server script set, user is not allowed to set the password as a field when Authentication is set as 'Plain Password'. When user selects a field for the 'Password' it becomes blank after user closed the dialog.
In the earlier version (FM12) this was possible.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. Create script
2. insert script step 'Send Mail'
3. Select option 'SMTP server'
4. Select authendtication 'Plain Password'
5. for Password click on select and select any field
6. click OK

after this the field does not appear in place of password, i is just blank

Expected result

field name should appear for password when user clicks inside the password textbox

Actual result

password field value is blank instead of selected field name


I am opening the file in FileMaker 12 set the password as the required field and then open it in FileMaker 13
