I have a file that was created with fmp15. When I open that same file in FMP16 the top menu bar does not show. File-edit-view-insert-records etc.
So what have you tried so far?
What operating system?
If windows, 32 or 64 bit installer?
Do you use custom menus in your app?
Do you use custom privilege sets in your app?
Did you restart your computer after installing?
Do you have both 15 and 16 installed at the same time?
Is this a file local on your computer, or one you are opening up from a hosted location?
This seems to be a recurring 'issue'. Here is my reply to another thread which had the same problem:
"I had exactly the same issue, and I ended up putting a button on my main layout that toggles "Show/Hide Menubar".
I then decided that I did not want to have to go back to the main layout to be able to toggle on/off the menubar if I ever was on a layout where the menu was hidden, I created a script with the show/hide Menubar as the sole step, then dragged that script to the very top of the script tree in Script Workspace so that it is now run by simply pressed CTL+1 from anywhere in the system."
Placing the script at the top of the scrip tree means that I no longer need to have a button on the layout, I can simply press CTL+1
Here is another forum post about the same issue: Re: Menu Toolbar missing
Custom menus except for a dim
Custom privilege sets (administration all)
Computer was restarted
Bother 15 and 16 are installed
Hosted on server but test was done offline
This has to do with the new changes in FM16 for Windows. You may have to open the solution in 15 to fix. I use a custom menu and hide / show it. CTRL+SHIFT+S will show the script work place. The shortcut does not work in a custom menu, unless you designed it too, which there was not a need at the time.
I created a button also to show the menu bar , I hide the button unless the user account is equal to mine. You can setup the hide option to hide on all user but administrative accounts or narrow it down to developers login account as I did. Once you have it setup, it really works nice.
Ha! I just wanted to file a bug report when I saw this very discussion on top of the list. I had the Show/Hide Menubar [Lock; Hide] enabled for use in iOS. I wasn't aware that the feature has been ported to Windows. Thanks!
FMI has stated the runtime has been deprecated, so in my opinion, I think FMI is trying to help us developers to integrate our database solution with File Maker seamlessly.
schamblee this thread doesn't have anything to do with runtimes.
I did not said the original post had anything to do with runtimes. I said the changes FMI made helps to better integrate your database with FM, so that the end user does not know that the database is running in FM. As many users have requested. Some user like the runtime because it somewhat hides FM, which is what the new feature does.
