How can I make a field active when «Go to Field […]» does not work? (Scripting question)

Post

Hi,

here's the issue (FMP Adv 11):

User enters a value; before the value is validated I intercept with a script trigger. In that script I want to make not the next field (of the tab order) active but another field. I was trying «Go to Field […]». But this doesn't work:

When the user hits the tab key (for example) after data entry, the active field is set to the next field in line (after the script has ended) and not to the field that I have specified in the script.

I wonder if there is a solution?

Thanks a lot for any help!

Gary
