Summary

Validation error causes slide panel to slide unexpectedly

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

13/14

Operating system version

Only tested on Mac and Go

Description of the issue

If you have several instances of the same field on separate panels of the same slide object, a validation error on this field will cause the slide object to slide to the earliest panel containing the field even if the field is present on the current panel.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Make a slide control with several panels.
Make a field with a validation.
Put this field on several panels.
Trigger a validation error on any but the earliest panel.

Expected result

The slide control should stay on the current panel if the field is present on the current panel.

Actual result

The slide control slides to the earliest panel containing the field.

N/A

Configuration information

The Tab control exhibits the same behaviour

Workaround

I suppose I could manually handle all the validation myself in a script. For many fields and panels as in report filling it is a daunting prospect.
Better then to ditch the slide control altogether and make separate layouts for the different tasks as before.
