Thank you for your post.
There appears to be a timing issue under FileMaker Go 13 and iOS 7. After "Perform Find", insert:
Pause/Resume Script [ Duration (seconds): 0.1 ]
That is, delay the script 1/10 of a second, and the cursor will then appear in the field.
No need for the Halt Script.
Our Development and Testing departments are aware of this issue.
Hi, TSGal, and thanks for your response. The pause did allow the overall effect to work and the cursor returns to the global field after a pause.
There seems to be a flash or jump, where the keyboard goes away, then comes back, before you can type the next letter.
Putting in a Freeze Window step before the pause / go to field doesn't seem to help.
I've been able to use the search portals demo'd in this older format demo file to good effect in FileMaker GO:
You'll need to open this file via Open in FileMaker's File menu to get a copy of the file converted to the newer file format, but the search portals shown in the bottom of the layout still work and work pretty well in FM GO.
When you Perform Find, the keyboard becomes inactive (like FileMaker Pro) and is dismissed, and then reappears when the cursor is placed back in the Global field. Freeze Window will not suppress the keyboard from closing and opening.
