Title

restore tab state

Post

Hi

 

I am to using a tabbed layout and also have buttons in these tabs that open new windows (to facilitate editing). After the edit is made and widow closed I need to return the user to the previously open tab. I have found a number of great solutions for this but none of them work in IWP which I also need.

 

So far I have tried:

http://sixfriedrice.com/wp/restoring-active-tab-state/ (this works great but not in IWP)

   and these which were mentioned in the comments:

   http://blog.myfmbutler.com/?p=34 (not IWP compatible)

   http://www.nightwing.com.au/FileMaker/demos9/demo902.html  (not IWP compatible)

 

My next solution to this will be to build simulated tabs using seperate layouts for each tab. I would prefer to avoid this but I am seeing so far that it may not be possible.

 

Thanks
