"HIDE OBJECT WHEN" Problem

When I was creating the FTP example today (see screenshot below), I had originally set the Result field that displays "File uploaded successfully" to not be visible (HIDE WHEN) if the text field was empty. But I found that after the web service returned and INSERT FROM URL's return value populated the Result field, the Result field was still hidden (invisible) UNTIL I click on the BODY area in the application.

 

I've tried ...

  • REFRESH WINDOW
  • REFRESH OBJECT
  • GO TO FIELD
  • GO TO OBJECT
  • GO TO LAYOUT
  • (probably others)

 

So how do I "set focus" to the form using FMP's functions so the field will be no longer be hidden once the message text is in there from the RETURN of the INSERT FROM URL?

 

Thanks,
