Set Field by Name in Find Mode - working ?

Hello,

I found out that Set field by name does not work in Find Mode on calculated fields (while Set field does).

It returns error: [102] missing field….

 

That resulted by testing this code:

 

Set variable [$selection; Value: <my customized function>]

Set variable [$fieldName; Value: Get(ActiveFieldName)]

Enter Find mode []

Set field by name [GetFieldName(Evaluate($fieldName)); $selection ]

Perform Find []

 

The above code works fine on standard text fields. Not on calculated text fields.

In fact I found a different and simpler solution for the example above using Set field that works in both cases. So this is not the issue.

 

The question is:

why Set field by name and Set field have different behavior in Find Mode over calculated fields ? does it make any sense or is it just a bug ?

 

Thanks

Piero
