FM11 advanced.

I want to 'freeze' the window on a 'promotional' layout in the script run upon file opening while the solution goes about initializing data etc.

The first script step is 'go to layout(promoLayout)'.

The second step is 'Freeze Window'.

The 3rd step goes to another layout.

FM immediately takes the screen to this other layout.

Why doesn't the solution leave the screen on the first layout?

Mac OS.

I did the pause for 2 seconds, but then it goes through the data initialization after the pause. I thought by freezing the window the initialization could go on 'behind' the scenes. Then instead of waiting 2 seconds plus initialization time to get control, the user would only have to wait the length of time for the initialization to complete before getting control.

Isn't 'Freeze' supposed to let things go on 'behind the scenes' until the script ends or a 'refresh' is executed?

Although I haven't been able to identify the specific step, it appears that one of the script steps in the initialization of the database is causing the refresh.

the sequence that appeared to be failing was

go to layout 1

freeze

go to layout 2

It appeared that the script immediately went to layout 2.

I put an 'infinite loop' immediately after layout 2 and it was looping with layout 1 showing as it should. Some step later on caused the refresh.

I'll figure it out and work around it.

Thanks. sorry for the trouble.
