SetActiveDatabase doesn't work with Text Editor pop-up editing option

Issue #1317 new
Jim Rea repo owner created an issue

Make a form with some pop-up editing cells. Then make a procedure like this

setactivedatabase "Some Other Database" field X

Immediately when the field statement runs, the pop-up cells will go nuts.

You can “fix” this by putting noshow in front of the field statement.

Or, you can also fix this by putting

setactivedatabase "" field A


The problem is that the field statement is causing all of the cells to update to try to draw the cell highlight on the correct field, but since the current window isn’t the active database, it doesn’t go well. I think a permanent fix might be a change in the setFieldNumber method in the FieldStatement.m class.
