Tab Focus


Recommended Posts

I have a tab set (2 tabs) on my layout, each tab having a portal. On one of the tabs (#2), I have a script that runs which goes to another layout, makes some changes to the data. BUT, when it returns the wrong tab is visible. What is showing is Tab #1. How can I keep (or change) the focus of the tab so that when I return, the script is seemless? thanks,

In FileMaker 8.0, you can use Go to Field[] to change focus to a tab with the specified field on it. Follow that step with Commit Records[] if you don't actually want to end up in that field.


In later versions, Go to Object[] in conjuction with object names can be used to explicitly set the focus to a specified object (tab) name.
