Webdirect Show Custom Dialog bug


FileMaker Server



Operating system version

All browsers

Description of the issue

"Show Custom Dialog" has a bug with webdirect.
The bug occurs when you don't use "input field 1" and use input field 2 and input field 3.  When clicking OK on that webviewer the webpage will become unresponsive, and the webdirect user will get stuck on the server and that user can't be booted.  I have to close the file from the admin console to boot the user off of the server.

I have only tested this with the input fields set as passwords.

It's very easy to work around once discovered, just use input fields 1 and 2.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Access a file via webdirect with a "Show Custom Dialog" script step that has input field 1 empty and input field 2 and/or 3 occupied and press the OK button.
The input fields may have to be set as passwords

Expected result

The script continues

Actual result

The script crashes at that point
The web page becomes unresponsive
The webdirect user can not be disconnected from the server.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear


Configuration information

Using the TechNet licence of webdirect hosted on Windows 8.1 accessed from IE and Safari on local and remote machines.


Make sure "input field 1" is not empty.
