    WEB DIRECT: Can't edit related field in popover of po is in a portal  (round 2)

      Summary

      WEB DIRECT: Can't edit related field in popover of po is in a portal  (round 2)

      Product

      FileMaker Server

      Version

      13.03

      Operating system version

      WS 2012 R2

      Description of the issue

      This is a well reported issue. If you place PO in a portal row and it displays a related field, edits to that field are not saved.

      The notes for FMS 13.02 say this is fixed.


      "5.5. Popovers in FileMaker WebDirect solutions

          Addressed an issue where, when modifying a field value that is in a popover that is in a portal, the field value might not be saved."

      In my case I am displaying in the PO a field in in table related to the portal table, which is related of course to the current layout TO.

      In this case the problem is NOT Fixed.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      See this KB thread.

      Instead of simply related field, try a "related to the related" field
      It will not update via a PO in portal.

      If the PO is outside the portal the first related related record WILL update

      Problem does not arise in FM client.

      For testing I set all access to FULL ACCESS, so this is not a permissions issue either

      Expected result

      I expected this to be fixed in v13.02 on.

      Actual result

      See above

      Workaround

      There really isn't

               Oliver Reid:

                

               Thank you for the post. 

                

               I am not able to replicate. To attempt to replicate, I performed the following steps:

                

               1. New Database

                

          TO#1                        TO#2

               DATA (PK)  -------< UI (fk)

               Name Field

                

               2. Added four records to Name Field: One, Two, Three, Four

               3. On the UI layout, created a portal with all 4 records

               4. Placed a Pop-over button in the portal

               5. Placed the Name Field in the Pop-over

               6. Hosted the file with FileMaker Server 13.0v3, enabled for WebDirect

               7. Accessed via WebDirect > Clicked the Pop-over button on row one, Name Field reads "One"

               8. Changed "One" to "Edited" 

               9. Closed the Pop-over

                

               Result: "One" now reads "Edited"

                

               Please let me know if I am missing a step to replicate.
