    Default Browse view to form view issue

    I think this problem started when I upgraded to V9 or perhaps in one of the V9 updates.
    If I have two forms opened for the same table and am in the browse mode of the second form and decide to return to the form mode, the form mode defaults to the first form that was opened and not the one that I am in.

    Don't know if this makes any sense to anyone as it reads like a lot of my programming.

    At first I thought it was me and my mouse but ???

    Larry, I opened AlphaSports and went to the CP. I opened two instances of the Customer Information form. I put the second form in browse mode. I put it back in form view. Focus was NOT shifted to the first instance of the form. Each form seems to operate entirely within its own session as one would expect. Can you replicate the issue you're having with AlphaSports? If so, tell us how.

    In the Samples folder of your Alpha Five EXE directory. On my machine it's in this folder:

    C:\Program Files\a5v9\Samples\AlphaSports

    Seems to work fine in AlphaSports so I don't know why mine behaves different.

    Do you see the same behavior opening two instances of the "default form" for the table or set that supports your custom form?

    Larry, that last bit of information pretty much confirms it. The problem is with your implementation. If you post a copy of the database here, with instructions for us to follow to see the problem, perhaps we can identify the cause.

    Tom, there is a substantial number of tables and info in my database. I will see if I can empty and delete items that are not part of this problem set and see how it behaves and then post what I can.
