FileMaker Pro 16 and Advanced 16: Windows only

Tested on Windows 7 and Windows 10


A script in file A calls a script in file B

- expected result: File B stays in background

- actual result: File B comes in front



In our case the deletion of a record in file A is logged in protocol table in file B (a routine function since several years):

- Mastescript in file A calls Subscript in file B

- Subscript B GOES TO LAYOUT X and writes the log entry (at this point file B comes to front)

- Masterscript in file A displays a dialog "function completed"(which is shown above the windows of file B!)



This only happens on FM16 Windows.

- not on FM15 oder earlier

- not on FM16 Mac or earlier
