Show/Hide a document

I have created a document using F_ApiCustomDoc() to output a table data.
Before outputing the table data, I use the following code (1) to hide the document.

(1)F_ApiSetInt(FV_SessionId, docToId, FP_IsOnScreen, False);

And after outputing the table data, I use the following code (2) to show the document.

(2)F_ApiSetInt(FV_SessionId, docToId, FP_IsOnScreen, True);

This code works well until Framemaker2015.
But when I executed with FrameMaker2020, the document isn't shown after (2).

 

I don't know what is causing it.
Do you have any solution?

I can confirm the same behavior with FrameMaker 2020 and 2022 using ExtendScript.

#target framemaker

var doc = app.ActiveDoc;
doc.IsOnScreen = 0;
alert (doc.Name);
doc.IsOnScreen = 1;

You should file a bug. Your description is concise enough to copy/paste into the bug tracker.

Here is a workaround that you can rewrite as C code. You make a custom document, but set its initial visibility to false. Add your content to the document and then display it on screen. It works in FrameMaker 2020 with ExtendScript.

 

#target framemaker

var PT = 65536, template, textFrame, textLoc;

// Make a temporary document that will serve as a template.
template = CustomDoc (612 * PT, 792 * PT, 1, 12 * PT, 72 * PT, 72 * PT, 
    72 * PT, 72 * PT, Constants.FF_Custom_SingleSided, false);
