Summary

The OnOpen/Switch to layout option not showing up in XML DDR Report

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

12.0v3

Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

When creating a XML DDR report, the 'switch to layout' option/name won't show up in the XML (tag of 'OnOpen') unless the file also has an OnFirstWindowOpen script option as well.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a file with the 'Switch To Layout' option specifying a layout.  DO NOT have the OnFirstWindowOpen script step checked.  Export a XML DDR report on the file with all options checked.

Expected result

The XML should have the 'OnOpen' tag regardless of the status of OnFirstWindowOpen.  The results should look similar to this -


     
          
     

     
          
               
          

     

     
          
     

Actual result

The options section in the XML file looks like such -


     
          
     

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

N/A

Workaround

Select a OnFirstWindowOpen that triggers a blank script.  But this is very impractical with a 60 file solution.
