When using a Custom Menu for the items Go To Previous/Next Record, the override script fires PRE action when using the buttons in the toolbar or in the Records meny, but fires POST action when using the keyboard shortcuts.


I am using an override script to hide a slide panel before browsing to another record as FM by default loads the record before considering any OnRecordLoad scripts. This works well using the previous/next buttons in the toolbar as they actually load the new record after the custom menu script has fired.

However, when using the keyboard shortcuts to navigate between records, the previous/next record loads before the custom meny script is fired.
