Works in Pro/Not in Go: Scroll Window [To Selection]

Recommended Posts

[Cross Post - I posted this as Claris Community, but didn't get any bites after 24 hours]

I am trying to scroll to the active record in List view.

It works perfectly in Pro (19).

I am running the script from Go (iPhone) using the FileMaker Network (lightning cable to my Mac)

I cannot get it to work in Go. It goes to the right record and field because I can manually scroll to it, but the script won't do it.

Here is the simple script:


Go to Field [Select/Perform; Person::FirstName]

Scroll Window [To Selection]


It doesn't budge in Go.

I have used a dialog window/Data Viewer to confirm I'm actually in the right field and on the right record, but Go will not scroll to it.

I have tried every imaginable combination of Pause/Refresh Window/Scroll Home/Scroll End, etc.

Nothing in the docs indicate it should work differently between Pro/Go.

Anyone have any ideas?

What do you mean by 'scroll to the active record in list view'?  

Are you moving from a form view to a list view?

Did you get to list view via a script?

I'm in List view with a sort based on Urgency (Urgent, Concerned, Regular).

I go to a card window (same context, not that it matters) that has three stars for urgency. I change the Urgency.

I close the card window that returns me to List view. The same/right record is selected in Pro/Go, as it should be. But, Pro is still showing that record even if it moved 100 spots due to being a different Urgency. Go doesn't. I can't get Go to scroll to that record, even though it is even selecting a field on that record. I can scroll down a few pages and there it is, on the right record with the Go To Field ready to edit.

I tested it by using Scroll Window [Home] and Scroll Window [End] instead and it scrolls to the top and bottom accordingly. So, I know it is executing that line of code.

This one really has me baffled...

      I have a shopping list app for personal use.  On the MacBook it works fine.  I have a global search field which searches through the list of existing items.  I have a script trigger (On Object Modify) on the field which allows a 'type ahead' search when each letter is entered.  On the phone in FileMaker Go, the keyboard drops off the screen and then reappears when I type each letter.  Pretty disconcerting to use.  Is there anyway to stop this please??  I have attached the script I use for the type ahead.  Thanks.

      We have a Filemaker Go on iPads and there is a layout with portal rows, when scrolling through it hesitates and you must wait to scroll down. We have offline files on the iPad, although it happens when we connect to the Filemaker server as well.
      Any suggestions?
      Thank you,

      Hi.  I am creating a small app for my iphone but for some reason the keyboard will not display.  I have to press on the symbol (3 lines and an arrow) to display it.  I have tried all the different combinations but without success.  Any help will be appreciated.  Thanks.

      I have two iPads connected to FM server. For some reason one ipad (5th Gen running 13.5) will not complete the navigation scripts and shows error messages (no records match this find criteria), however the 7th Gen running on 13.1.1 works fine..... Issue has only begun after purchasing the second, newer iPad. I cannot for the life of me work out what is wrong, or how to troubleshoot and would love some guidance please!! Here is a screengrab of one of the scripts and related layout:
