Hello Everyone in Filemaker Land;
i have overcome a problem I was having with multiple timed events happening - but it has raised another issue.
That of FOCUS.
The background is that I am constantly and continually updating a record every 10 seconds from a remote posting. This works fine.
My HeartBeat Broadcast - sits there and works quite happily in the background
The raw data ( visible in a table layout ) is constantly being updated with the correct timestamp.
( Seriously, the OnTimer script is not valid here - I have spent weeks on this )
However, on my visible Layout, which is set to automatically save Records; the activity of selecting something seems to stop the background record from being updated - SOMETIMEs...???
Is this a focus thing? Is it necessary to force a "commit" after the selection; in order to "free" the focus so the background record is available to be updated?
Please respond in your kindest terms..
