OnRecordLoad Script Trigger Behaviour

Hi all,

 

I'm having curious behaviour with the OnRecordLoad script trigger set on a layout. The script trigger is designed to run a script which opens a new window when the user changes record. With the trigger enabled, when the script reaches the New Window step, it keeps firing until I about the script, ie produces scores of new windows until I can stop it. To investigate this issue I've reduced the process to just two steps:

 

1. Set the OnRecordLoad script trigger for this layout to run a test single line script

2. Have the test script simply have a single step: New Window.

 

When I exit Layout mode, switch records or even quit and reopen the file, the New Window step keeps firing until I abort the script. It happens on both FMPA10 and 11 on OS X 10.6.8.

 

I am taking it that this is not expected behaviour but aren't ready yet to say it's a b*g. Or is this behaviour explainable, and there's something simple I've missed?

 

Any advice (or others able to replicate the issue) would be appreciated.

 

Thanks,
