    Zooming a window commits record

    Extensitech

      Summary

      Zooming a window commits record

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      14

      Operating system version

      Windows 7

      Description of the issue

      When zooming a window (changing the zoom level) the current record, if opened, is committed, including causing onRecordCommit to trigger.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      Begin editing a record. Either with an onRecordCommit script step and or watching get ( recordopenstate ) in a data viewer, watch the record get committed as you change the zoom level.

      Expected result

      It may be that this is expected behavior, but I don't think it's expected by users (or most developers) and the help topic "Committing data in records" does not list this as a way that records get automatically committed. If there is a reason why zooming should commit (although I cannot personally think of one) the documentation should reflect this.

      Actual result

      record commits, whereas the documentation does not indicate that it will do so

      Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

      none

      Workaround

      Awareness, for now. :-)
