Windows8.1, FMA 14.4, IE 11

 

Another new issue in FM14 I am having.  Is this still supported in 14, FM website shows it only though 13?

Using the GetLayoutObjectAttribute Function | FileMaker

 

GetLayoutObjectAttribute ( "WebViewer" ; "content")  Sometimes returns null when there is data in the web viewer object.  If I return to the page after doing something else the script will collect the data.

 

This script step has worked for years without fail until FM14 (currently 14.4)

 

Now periodically it returns no values when values exist (see screen shot below)  When it happens, if I run debugger I can see the variable shows null.

 

I have gone to other records run the webviewer and script, then returned to the original and the data shows in the webviewer the 1st time, but still shows no data in the GetLayoutObjectAttribute

 

If I then go to layout mode then return to browse mode it works

 

I would call this a BUG
