I have a script that runs on open. It insists on selecting a non-modifiable field even when I end the script with a go to object command. How do you get a file to open in a neutral state - ie with no active field?

mikedr posted a topic in Community Articles, Tips, & TechniquesI've gotten a lot out of this forum, so I try to pay it forward when I can, even though it'll likely only benefit newbies. I have an "image" button that is tied to a popover. So you click the button, and you get the popover. Easy enough. Usual UI interaction is that if you click the button, the popover appears, and if you click it again, the popover disappears. Again, all typical FM stuff. FM does not allow conditional formatting of image buttons to change the color. I wanted to emphasize to the user that for the layout field in question (in the popover), data has been entered. So I created another layout object -- an oval/circle surrounding the image button -- that is displayed only if one or more of the fields of the popover tied to the image button has been populated. Again, typical FM stuff. What was flummoxing me, though, was that the image button wasn't "working" as expected. If you clicked on the button, the popover appear. But if you clicked on it again, the popover would "re-appear," instead of disappearing. The problem it turns out was that my oval/circle surrounding object was "over" the image button and in the foreground. So FM didn't see a user was still hovering over the image button, but rather was hovering over the oval/circle object when it was shown. Thefore, if you clicked on the image button again, FM thought (correctly) that the image button was not previously being hovered over, and dutifully showed the popover again. Very, very easy fix -- in the layout edit mode, I simply moved the oval/circle object to be behind the image button. Everything now works as expected. I hope this tip helps someone! It took my around 90 minutes to figure out what was going on . . . . . .
...I would like to return to a specific OBJECT after I edit a layout. How do I use script triggers (or any script) to make sure the "TAB" / object I was working on in Layout mode..returns me right back to the object I was editing. I already have a field setting the current or last used TAB/OBJECT.....but unable to go to this object when I exit Layout mode. Anyone?
