    Card Window + Paused Script = Continue & Cancel buttons missing


      Product and version FileMaker Pro 16.0.1

      OS and version Mac 10.11.5

      Hardware MacMini



      Hello TSGal et al,


      I have noticed that if in a script you open a card window, Pause the script and then close the window that there is no continue button, when the script is paused.


      This seems to me to be a bug.

      How to replicate



      Create 2 Layouts + 1 Script:


      New Window [ Style: Card ; Name: Get( WindowName ) & " - Card" ; Using layout: "OtherLayout" ]

      Pause/Resume Script [ Indefinitely ]

      Close Window [ Current Window ]



      Make sure status bar is visible

      Run script

      While paused…

      expected result:     Continue and Cancel buttons visible

      actual result:          No buttons visible


      Workaround (none)

          Thank you for your post.


          From the Card description in Help:    FileMaker Pro 16 Help


          "In FileMaker Pro, cards do not display the status toolbar, the formatting bar, a title bar, or a window frame."


          Your screen shot shows the Status toolbar from the primary window; not the Card window.  A Card window acts the same as the Status Toolbar in hidden condition.  As the developer, you will need to provide your own Continue (Resume Script) and/or Cancel (Halt/Exit Script) button inside the Card window.
