Pull down lists problem in a group

Post by Rob van der Sloot » Fri Apr 15, 2016 3:54 pm

I am using quite a lot of option menus in my application.
Sometimes I want to use it in a seperate screen on a card, so I create a group, with fields and also an option menu on it, which is show/hide on demand.
But that does not work. As soon as the option menu is clicked and the list is shown, you can select an item from the list, but after that the mouse sticks to the list.
And within a few seconds the whole application quits. I thought it had to do with the break command at the end of every script item, but it did not help to change there to other break commands.
I thought to be smart and used a datagrid in stead of an option menu. But the same result, mouse sticks to selection.
So now I make a substack for all these small items, but it would be nice if it could be done on a card.

Can someone help me out of this?

thanks

It sounds like something in the script is hanging LC and then crashing. Post your script and we can look.
