Running FileMaker Pro Advanced 15.0.2 on a Mac OS X El Capitan 10.11.
When I try to change the Pop-Up Menu: Button to fill as a gradient while in the Normal state, FileMaker crashes immediately.
Thank you for your post.
I am unable to replicate the issue using FileMaker Pro Advanced 15.0.2 under macOS Sierra 10.12. This is what I have done:
1. I created a database file with one text field "Popup".
2. In Inspector -> Data, I formatted the field as a Pop-up menu with the values "Yes", "No" and "Maybe".
3. In Inspector -> Appearance, I changed to "Pop-up Menu: Button", (Normal State) changed the Fill to Gradient.
4. I saved the layout, switched to Browse, back to Layout, and I could still change the Fill.
I will have access to a Mac OS X 10.11.6 machine in about one hour to test. I will keep you posted.
In the mean time, follow my steps above. Are you able to crash with a new file? If not, open your original file, create a new layout, and try changing the gradient again. This will let me know if the issue is caused by the file or by the layout.
It appears to be layout-based. The new file didn't crash it, and neither did the new layout.
I think I'm getting closer. Earlier I posted another problem in the Discussions area on this forum. Link: Pop-up Menu won't display correctly
These are both on the same layout. When I change the pop-up to not have a line around it, the button and icon disappear. It's at this point that changing the button fill to gradient crashes FileMaker.
Thank you for the update.
The issue may be the field on the layout! Therefore, write down the position of the field, the font, style, etc. Then, remove the field from the layout. Bring in a new instance of the field and place it in the same position as the old field, apply the Pop-up menu, and see if you can make it crash. If this works, then it was a corrupt field object. However, if you still crash, duplicate the layout, and try using a different theme with the duplicated layout. Does this work?
Replicating both issues, start by doing the same as you suggested above:
1. Create database file with one text field "Popup".
2. In Inspector -> Data, format the field as a Pop-up menu with a value list selected.
3. In Inspector -> Appearance -> Line change it to "None", and Save Changes to Style, should cause button and icon on right to disappear.
4. In Inspector -> Appearance -> change to Pop-Up Menu: Button, on the Normal state, and change the Fill to Gradient.
This will cause FileMaker to crash.
I replied to your previous post before your new post arrived.
Continuing on with my previous steps:
5. I changed the Line from "Solid" to "None". The button icon disappears, as this is expected when no right border is selected.
6. I changed the Gradient settings to a different color, and saved this to the layout.
7. I went to Browse, switched back to Layout, and I could still change the Gradient values and save them. No crash.
Sorry, I didn't see your new post. I tried that and I can make it crash when setting the Line to None, and changing the button to gradient.
This happens both on the current file, all new files I create, and every theme I've tried so far. However, knowing that the button icon is supposed to disappear without a border makes this make a little more sense. Yet, I can change the button to a Solid Fill.
Thank you for the steps. I am able to replicate the crash under macOS Sierra 10.12 and Mac OS X 10.11.6, but only after I try to save the changes of the gradient fill. If I leave Line at "Solid", I can save new Gradient values. However, if I change Line to "None" and attempt to select "Pop-Up Menu: Button", I also get a crash.
I have sent your instructions, along with my findings, to our Development and Testing departments for review. When I receive any feedback, I will let you know.
Just a follow-up, I am also able to replicate the issue under both Windows 7 and Windows 10.
Our Testing department is able to replicate the crash, and all information has been sent to Development for further review.
This issue has been addressed in FileMaker Pro 16.
