Is there any chance of a user being in list-view mode in this modal window?
Modal windows in list view seems like a potential problem as the user could change record focus, and the creation of new records by other users might affect the visible list. I use form-view-only as the layout setup when creating special layouts for modal windows.
I have experienced the same thing. I believe it might be solved for you by adding a Select Window immediately after the new modal window is created. Interestingly, I was good to document my script (attached) where I noted the behavior. Re-reading help over and over at the time, it seems there is a logic here although a bit obscure. Hopefully others can fill us in.
BTW, this was on Windows system. A fellow developer on Mac could not replicate, possibly because Mac would already have the 'window' selected?
That's very interesting LaRetta
I develop on a Mac, but the issue is occuring on PCs.
I'll give it a go and see what happens, cheers
Worth a check mate, but they are form views, cheers
