Web viewer window displays a screen defect in FM11


FileMaker Pro


FileMaker Advanced 11.0v2

Operating system version

Mac OS X (10.6.5)

Description of the issue

The web viewer contents get garbled when scrolling up and down the page.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Create a single text field.
Load into it some properly formatted HTML.
Have a web viewer reference that field (allow interaction). Make sure the text is larger than the web viewer can naturally display.
Give the web viewer a border color, size: hairline.

Expected result

When scrolling the content should scroll up and down without display defect.

Actual result

Scroll up and down in the web viewer in Browse Mode. You will see that the content of the web viewer gets fuzzy, even repetitive. The more you scroll, the worse it gets.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

There are no errors.

Configuration information

I can reproduce this in FileMaker Pro 11 and Advanced 11. This works perfectly well in FMA10.


If you change the border on the web viewer size to 1pt or higher, the issue does not come up anymore.
