      Summary

      set password as a field

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      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

      Workaround

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