    Random "Paste" in FM Go

    acevh3

      When the user is entering data into fields of the active record that use checkbox sets, either the iPad or FM Go will randomly paste into the active field whatever happens to be on the iPad clipboard. Can't figure out what's triggering this. So far this has only happened in fields with a checkbox set control. It's never happened in an edit box, which is where you would think they might accidentally execute Paste.

      FM Pro 14.0.1

      Go_iPad 14.0.2

      iOS 9.0

          are there any script triggers active? Anything that automates something? Check in layout-mode for symbols on the lower right corner of the fields (a looking glass symbol would be no problem..). Is it a multi user environment?

            Thanks for taking an interest in this! It is a multi-user environment - 6 iPads accessing the database. But I have it set up so that there won't be more than one person accessing a given record at the same time.

            I have a script trigger on many fields. Their purpose is to limit the number of checkboxes that can be checked in some of the fields. What it does is just revert the record (throw away the checkmark) if the allowed number of choices has already been reached. It executes on Object Save. In cases where the maximum has been reached, it allows someone to uncheck one of the existing checkboxes and pick a different last one. The scripts for limiting number of choices look generally like this:

            Set Variable [$field; Value:Get ( ActiveFieldTableName ) & "::" & Get ( ActiveFieldName )If Commit Records/Requests End IfIf Revert Record/Request End If

            If it's a field that I don't need to limit, I still need a script trigger; these just commit the record so that if a subsequent Revert is done for another field it doesn't inadvertently revert this one along with it.

            BTW, so far this has just happened (several times) on one iPad, with one user. So I'm also thinking about whether there's something going on with either that iPad or that user.

            Thanks for any suggestions.
