Steps to reproduce:

1. Create a two file solution

2. Create a script (Script "Open")in file 2 that opens the card window, waits for user input, then closes the card window

3. Create a script (Script "CallOpen") in file 1 that calls the script in file 2 and put this script on a button

4. Create a startup script (Script "Start") in file that opens file 2 in the background

5. Start file 1 and press the button

 

Expected behaviour:

As in FileMaker Pro/Adv. te card window should display over the currently displayed foreground window (ie. window from file 1)

 

Actual result:

FileMaker Go Crashes

 

Workaround:

call a "Select Window" in Script "Open" before opening the card window

 

FileMaker Versions affected:

FileMaker Go 16

FileMaker Go 17

 

While this works it misses consistency and brings unwanted windows to the foreground. FieMaker Go should never just crash.
