Scrolling problem with FM12 - worked OK with 11

Hey guys (& Gals) ,

 

Got a weird problem with FM12 when switching layouts between list & record view then back.

 

Our users look at a list , then select the record they want to view in more detail ( script is run that only switches to a layout in form view.)

 

If that record was # 400 out of 3500 for example , the normal FM behaviour is to bring that record to the bottom most visible row when returning to the list view.

 

That's OK , I've lived with that for years using a script that would bring it to the top :

 

=======================

Go to Layout ["Company List"]

Scroll window [Page Down]

Go to Record/Request [next]

Go to Record/Request [previous]

=======================

 

 

 

This used to work OK for FM11, but in 12 , that record still stays as the last row ... and here's the kicker... unless I step through the script with the debugger.

 

"OK , maybe it needs a refresh window or even a pause after the scroll window step" , I quietly thought to myself... I just tried that does and it does not work either.

 

Looks like the screen draw order is a bit messed up on this one.

Has anyone else come across this problem yet ?

It's not a deal-breaker by any means , but it does have an annoyance factor for the users and would really like to clean it up.

 

Kind regards , Lee.
