Execution sequence of Single step vs. Script for Button Setup
I use FileMaker Pro 10
I have a layout (Layout A) used in list view that displays a list of records. Clicking on a row in the list clicks a transparent button that opens that record on a different layout (Layout B) using form view. I have On Record Load triggers set on both layouts. When I click a record in Layout A I expect the On Record Load trigger of Layout A to execute first, then switch to Layout B, and then have On Record Load in Layout B execute.
However, if the button uses a single step (either Go to Related Record or Go to Layout) the single step runs first and then the On Record Load of Layout A is triggered after the layout has switched to Layout B followed by On Record Load of Layout B. On the other hand, if I have the buttons on layout A do Perform Script on a script that contains a Go to Related Record step, I get the expected behavior.
The button behavior with a single step is surprising to me. Is there any documentation on the ordering of button actions and triggers?
