Resetting a Variable?


Hello and greetings to all you fellow FileMaker users!

This is my first post here and I'm fairly new to FileMaker so bear with me.

I have created a layout that contains a tab area with 3 tabs. In each of those tabs are portals which contain fields for various data. In the 2nd tab, I've applied a script to a field that sets a variable when it is selected/clicked, and resets it when it is deselected/clicked again. This ties up with some conditional formatting that colours the field blue when selected. This works well, however, I want to reset the variable of the selected field if I navigate away from that tab, because by navigating away, either by selecting another tab, or moving to the next record, I am choosing to 'deselect' that field.

How do I do this?

Thanks in advance for your simplified instructions ;)
