Hi,

 

I need to have a field always active with blinking insertion cursor. I need that no matter what they do, user can't exit it (unless quitting filemaker pro).

 

Using "Go To Field" Script step, I can make sure with LayoutScript triggers that upon opening the solution, the field is selected correctly.

 

Howewer, with an OnObjectExit script that just do a "Go To Field", if the user clicks on the background, the script is not re-selected.

 

Strangely, if I run the script that does the "Go To Field" from the Script Menu it works as expected the field remain selected with blinking cursor

 

So how can I make sure that field remains selected (I don't want to use loops because teh cusror must be blinking to allow field entry)

 

Thanks
