My Webdirect solution being hosted on a Filemaker 15 server is not selecting the contents of a field when tabbing from field to field. Everything is set properly and works fine in FM.
are you using a supported browser?
Yes, Safari 9.1.1 on OSX 10.11.5.
If I have people tell me that it works for them but not me, I'll assume it's something to do with my custom theme as I already had to redo an entire layout due to a tab panel not initially rendering properly. I would like to know if it does work for others, what theme they tested it on so I can try to use that as my basis as I've done some tests with other default themes without success.
How are you selecting the field contents on entry, is it the checkbox setting or via a script trigger?
Are both the source and the destination fields using the default styling of the theme you chose?
Are both fields directly in the body part, EG not in a tab control, popover or portal?
The fields are set to 'Select entire contents on entry' via the checkbox on the field inspector and work properly from Filemaker but not Safari. In Safari, an initial click into a field properly selects the fields contents but tabbing to the next field does not.
All fields on the layout started with the Enlightened Touch theme but were modified from the Default style and saved as a new style. The Enlightened Touch Default style exhibits the same behavior when a field uses it with 'Select entire contents on entry' checked.
All fields are contained within a Tab Control, I've tested fields in the main body and they exhibit the same behavior as those in the Tab Control.
Out of curiosity what happens when you press enter after tabbing to a field, does it clear the field or activate it? Or nothing?
Pressing Enter after tabbing into a field commits the record as expected.
Filemaker Tech Support has replicated and acknowledged the issue, it has been reported before and will hopefully be rectified in a future maintanance release.
