BOMs : different behavior on hosted files with v14
Operating system version
OS X 10.10.5
Description of the issue
Using a byte-order marks (BOM's) to sort value list based on a field, i just realized an inconsistency between local files and hosted files. With hosted files, the value list doesn't return the first BOM, whereas this is the case with local files as it was the case with FileMaker Pro 13 regardless if files are hosted or not. So according to previous version's behavior, the hosted file behavior is wrong.
Steps to reproduce the problem
- Open locally the example file attached (created especially to demonstrate the issue).
- Try to modify the "TestValue" field.
- Observe the value returned by "TestPosition" field, which is simply counting the BOMs.
- Host the file, open it and repeat step 2. and 3.
Both tests should give the same result.
When the file is hosted AND the client is FileMaker Pro 14, the first BOM of the value list is ignored. Moreover, it doesn't matter if the file is hosted by FileMaker Server 14 or FileMaker Server 13.
Tested with FileMaker Pro 13.0.5 / 14.0.2 and FileMaker Server 13.0.9 / 14.0.2
