I've formatted a pop-up menu to "allow entry of other values". In WebDirect, however, "other" does not appear as an option. FMS 16v4. Screenshot shows pop-up setup on the right, with its FMWD appearance on the left.
Thank you for your post and screen shot.
I am able to replicate the issue with FileMaker Pro Server 16.0.4 on macOS Sierra 10.12.6, and accessed by both Chrome and Safari under macOS High Sierra 10.13.4. I see from your screen shot that you are using Windows.
I have sent all information to our Development and Testing departments for review. When I receive any feedback, I will let you know.
Our Testing department pointed out that this is documented in the FileMaker 16 WebDirect Guide at:
FileMaker 16 WebDirect Guide
Go down to the section "Design considerations" and expand the sub-section "Fields". The ninth bullet point says:
"In pop-up menus and drop-down lists, web users can’t use an Edit item or an Other item to edit or add values to a value list."
Thanks, TSGal. There was another article I'd found comparing Pro vs WD, and nothing mentioned there. I'd also checked in FileMaker Pro 16 Help (setting field controls) and there was nothing there about WD.
I hadn't previously seen the article you pointed to. For what it's worth, I've discovered that Other item can't be used in checkboxes or radio buttons either.
