Title

FileMaker Go and Commit Record script step

Post

     I'm hoping there's a simple solution to this or I'm just misunderstanding things.  This is in regards to Go 12 and FM 12.

     This is primarily affecting an FM Go database but it also seems to be a behavior of the full client.  It seems that if a script trigger (OnObjectSave) is tagged to a field that's a drop-down menu (maybe other formats as well) and the final step of that script is a "Commit Record" FM doesn't exit the field.  It traverses to the next field in the tab order.

     Previously (as my memory serves me), the Commit Record step forced an exit of focus of all fields.  It's become difficult to design a smooth interface when focus unwantingly jumps to the next field causing the virtual keyboard to pop up or a new pop-up menu springs up.

     Is this the expected behavior?  How can I get out of all field focus at the end of a script?

     Thanks in advance!
