Toolbar refresh

Toolbar refresh


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.6

Description of the issue

Sometimes, we run into a situation where the status toolbar is not refreshed.
A simple onRecordLoad trigger can lock the toolbar record navigation system in a window, or sometimes even in a session (for a file). Not an application session.

Steps to reproduce the problem

not able to reproduce constantly

Expected result

It seems the record navigation part of the toolbar (arrows, pie, slider, count) is not refreshed and does not always react to a record change.
It behaves like a sub program that sometimes crashes or runs into a 'not responding mode'.
In general, there are too many situations in which the toolbar (not only the record part) displays erroneous information. It's probably not sensitive enough to feed-backs coming from the rest of the app.
A 'status' bar must indicate the status, that is RECEIVE information from the app and display it. I sometimes have the impression that because it is also a 'tool' bar, it only displays information that would be expected if everything was fine when the user SENDS an action message.


close the file and relaunch it.
