FileMaker 16 - WebViewer - GetLayoutobjektAttribut

The function GetLayoutobjektAttribut("WebViewerObjectName", "source") is not returning the full / correct URL under some conditions.


Under normal conditions this function returns the URL including the anchors for example "http://example.com/#someInitialAnchors". But if a FileMaker Script changes the URL of this Web Viewer via the script step "Set Web Viewer" goto URL: "http://example.com/#aNewAnchor", the function GetLayoutobjektAttribut("WebViewerObjectName", "source") ist not returning the correct URL anymore.


With the previous FileMaker Versions 12, 13, 14 and 15 there was no Problem with this function.


Tested on:

Mac OSX El Capitan Version: 10.11.6


FileMaker Pro Advanced: is not working

FileMaker Pro is not working


Tested with older Versions:

FileMaker Pro Advanced: is working

FileMaker Pro is working

FileMaker Pro 14.0.5 Advanced: is working

FileMaker Pro 14.0.5: is working

FileMaker Pro 13.0v4 Advanced: is working

FileMaker Pro 12.0v5 Advanced: is working


I attached an Example of this Bug: Open the FileMaker Document and push the Button "Set New URL (Push ME!!)" to test the behavior of this Bug.


It would be great to get a quick Bugfix. Feel free to contact me for further information.


Kind regards
