That is the normal behavior for a popup menu on FMGo. No, you will just have to go with your work around.
I'll complete the pop overs.
Peter, this is easy to resolve. Create a Script with the following two steps:
Then use an OnModify script trigger on the Pop up menu field to trigger the script.
You're right rgordon. It's almost too easy. I had not considered the focus change a script issue, but Halt works perfectly and it removes the record browsing bar from the bottom of the screen to!!!! It is also twice as fast as the pop over work around.
First time I have heard of this work around. This has came up a couple of times over the past couple of years. I haven't had time to test, myself.
Another great reason to be part of these forums.
It works a treat and should be documented, (at least until the dev team get on top of it).
I spent hours yesterday going through more than 200 layouts applying the mini-script where needed. The net result is that my app runs much more smoothly on Go.
