Variables Not Being Declared on FileMaker Go - have to quit FM Go App


FileMaker Go



Operating system version

iOS 7.0.5

Description of the issue

I'm having intermittent problems with variables not being declared via a Custom Function on FileMaker Go. I'm passing multiple script parameters from a button and the selected script then uses a custom function to declare these and turn them into local variables for the script to use.

This generally works, but on occasions these variables have not being generated. Closing the file and reopening doesn't work - I have to quit the FileMaker Go app completely and then open it again.

It doesn't happen 100% of the time but I'm starting to notice it more and more.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1. create a layout with a button that performs a script and passes in multiple parameters in the format expected by this custom function:

2. click button on layout using FileMaker Go for iPhone
3. at various intermittent times the script will not declare the parameters and convert them into local variables.

Expected result

Local variables declared for use by subsequent script steps

Actual result

No local variables declared causing subsequent errors in script steps that reference missing local variables
