    Get ( ActiveLayoutObjectName )



      Get ( ActiveLayoutObjectName )


      Hi All, 

      [ Mac, FM v9 and FM v10 ]

      Has anyone been able to get this function to return object names from a tab object? 
      I've set up a tab panel with each tab object labeled. ( obj1, obj2, obj3) 
      Run a script using the Get ( ActiveLayoutObjectName ),  function 
      returns "". 

      I know the object names are recognized because LayoutObjectNames 
      ( fileName ; layoutName ) returns the object names. 

      I was expecting that the front most tab would be returned so I could 
      use it later. 
      I've even left the cursor in a field that's is on a tab to see if that 
      qualified the tab as active but still nothing. 

      Maybe I don't understand what FM considers the Active Object or this 
      function does not apply to 
      tab objects. 

      Thanks in Advance.
