    Webviewer drag and drop


      Product and version

      FileMaker Pro Advanced

      OS and version

      Windows 10



      Dragging text from a portal to a webviewer that then triggers a FileMaker Script via fmp protocol causes FileMaker to crash.


      How to replicate

      I have a layout with portal and a webviewer on it. The portal shows unassigned tasks and the webviewer is a scheduler. The goal is to assign the tasks to a user by simply dragging the id of the task from the portal to an available slot in the scheduler. The webviewer then runs a FileMaker script via fmp protocol to update the task with the new data (assigned user, time, etc.). This works several times until FileMaker crashes - sometimes even after the first try. I attached a very simple example. To reproduce the error, drag the timestamp from the portal and drop it on the red "drop zone". After 2-4 repetitions the error should occur.


      Best regards

          Thank you for your post and sample file.


          I am able to replicate the crash using FileMaker Pro Advanced 16.0.1 under Windows 10, and also using FileMaker Pro Advanced 15.0.3 under Windows 7.  The issue does not occur under macOS Sierra 10.12.5.


          I have sent your post and file, along with my findings, to our Development and Testing departments for review.  When I receive any feedback, I will let you know.

            Our Testing department is able to reproduce the crash using your file.  Your posts and file have been forwarded to Development for further review, along with a Windows 10 crash log and Windows 7 crash log.  When more information becomes available, I will post again.
