Hello,

 

I just discovered something scary.  I wanted to check if a specific script was used on a layout as I wasn't sure anymore.  So I created a DDR.

 

When checking the script in the DDR the 'Layouts that use this script' and 'Scripts that use this script' parts were empty.

Still I felt a bit unsure about deleting my script, so I searched for it manually on my layout and...I found it.

I used it in a portal on a button (=text).

 

Is this a known bug of the DDR or did I miss something?

Hard to tell without being able to reproduce your issue.  Which I cannot do:

I need to apologize.  The DDR consisted of different parent folders and I appear to have a script with the same name in another parent folder.

@Comment it's your picture that made me go back to the DDR to take screen shots and realise there was something different going on. 

I should have tried to reproduce the error myself but I was 'stuck' staring at the script name.

 

Thank you all for your replies.

      As there isn't a thread about this I thought I'd post about this annoying bug as it affected me and I thought I had a corrupt db.
      The issue seems to be that when editing layouts with certain summary parts in FileMaker 19.1.2 it changes the way that the layout is configured, so that a DDR created in FileMaker 18+ (at least) crashes FileMaker Pro and fails to create the DDR.
      Some points from my testing:
      Creating a DDR without selecting 'Layouts' works fine. 'Save a Copy as XML' works fine. It seems that running Recovery or compact/repair in 19.1.2 also introduces the issue. I don't know if running this in 19.0.1 fixes the issue but worth trying. Claris are aware of the issue and have stated that "The FileMaker file is not corrupted in this case and you can continue to use the file without issues". The workaround is to rollback to 19.0.1 on any machine used for development and rebuild any layouts edited in 19.1.2 (deleting all objects and pasting from a backup worked for me). Also a recovery might work in 19.0.1.

      Hi. I had a really weird problem last night that was pervasive through all files I was working on, served, local, and even a new file I created to try to test the issue. It was totally crippling and driving me crazy. I had gone into a script and selected the Go to Layout command, but when I tried to select a layout, none appeared, even though there were plenty of layouts in the table. I dismissed it as a temporary glitch and tried a Set Field command, needing to set a field to a calculation, and again, found the system locked up in such a way as I had never seen before. It would not let me enter a calculation! I closed and re-opened the file. No dice. I restarted Filemaker. Nope. I rebooted my entire computer. Nope. I tried working on a local file. Still - no layouts could be chosen in ANY file! I tried making a *new* file. Nope! I was desperate, and just about posted asking for help when I thought to disable all plug-ins, just to make sure, and voila - that did it. As soon as I disabled the 360Works FTPeek and 360Works WebAssistant plugins, full functionality in the script workspace was restored! I thought maybe it was just a coincidence. I re-enabled the plug-ins and checked again. It still worked, with the plug-ins re-enabled, so - maybe I was just having a bad day, but then when I went back in this morning, again - with the plug-ins re-enabled, again - I couldn't select any layouts or make any calculations in Script Workspace, so right away I disabled the plug-ins, again, and again, that fixed it, so I'm pretty sure there's something going on with the plug-ins. I also had 360Works Email installed, but had disabled it the day before any of this started to test functionality on the server, so that one was never enabled, and that's probably the first time I've ever disabled that one while still having the other's enabled. Other than that, I haven't changed anything about my system for quite awhile. I'm actually running 16, so maybe this won't be a problem when we upgrade to 17, but for anyone else who hits this roadblock - disable your plug-ins.

      This has long been an issue, I have no idea why it happens and it is making life quite difficult
      Win Server 2012 FMS 16 (current but this happens on other configurations)
      With ScriptMaster installed 
      run a script which resets the server ( SMReset) and then loads jars and functions return to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box
      run another script on the server which just returns to you the result of SMGetRegisteredModules and show it in a dialog box
       
      dialog 1 SHOWS the modules you installed
      dialog 2 is EMPTY
      fmsadmin restart fmse
      do the above again, same result
       
      this means you can not do a test on the server to see if a particular function is loaded before you want to use it.... in fact there is no test you can do to see if the ScriptMaster has fallen over as far as I can tell.
       
      Any solutions???

      Hi gurus,
      I am sure I’m missing something simple, but for the life of me I can’t figure this out. I have a database with tickets. What I want is when a new ticket is created I want to see a popover (see attached) then I want the user to type in the top box and as they type I want to filter the list below (a portal) and once they client is shown they would select it and a ticker is created for the client. I sound a script and modified to fit my needs but can’t get it to work. Can someone stretch a helping hand?
      BTW the filtering is working but its not reflecting in the popover its reflecting on the layout.
