Product and version (FileMaker Go, Build Date Jun 21, 2017)

OS and version (iOS 10.3.3)

Hardware (iPhone 6S Plus)



I have a button in a button bar set up with a dynamic label via a calculation. Sometimes the label is a single line, other times it can stretch to multiple lines. As I navigate from one record to the next the button label changes dynamically to display data for the current record. The problem is that on FileMaker Go the icon assigned to the button does not re-align vertically as the label shrinks or grows to multiple lines, it persists in the same position as the label text below it moves and comes close to overlapping it. On FileMaker desktop this is not an issue.


How to replicate

Please see the attached file. Navigate from one record to the next using the buttons on the layout or the Status Toolbar buttons to trigger the button label to change. Pay close attention to the icon on the button to the right of the screen as the button label changes.


Workaround (if any)

You can use a pinch and zoom gesture on the screen to cause the button's icon to re-align correctly, or you can use a refresh object script step. These are additional actions that are not required on FileMaker desktop since the button's icon re-aligns automatically as the label changes to a single line or multiple lines.
