Filter strangeness

I have customized a Browse form for a table T. The customization consists of a simple expression in the Filter property of the Main source. When I Open or Show the form in Dataphoria, or use it as the Start Document of an Application, the filter is honoured. However, when the form is opened by a ShowFormAction in another form, the filter doesn't work; all the rows of T are shown. What is going on?

Filter behavior

Hi Jon,

I believe what is happening is that since the ShowFormAction has a Filter property, it is overwriting the Filter on the Source in the form being shown. A workaround then would be to set the Filter on the ShowFormAction as well.

Yes, that works. Thanks.
