How do I navigate between tab controls using Scripts?
Answer ID: 6145Last Updated: Jan 31, 2012
An easy way to navigate between tabs, is to name the tabs and use the Go To Object script step.
In this example we have a database named EG6145 with a Layout that has a Tab Control with two tabs:
First, use Inspector ('Object Info' in FileMaker Pro 10 and earlier) to name each tab. You can assign names to objects and grouped objects. Some script steps and functions use these names to specify which object to act upon.
Tab Controls without the Tabs
The first part of the Tab-less Control process is to name your tabs. I’m actually not talking about the name that is displayed across the top of the tab but the name of the Tab Panel itself. Each individual tab panel in your control actually has it’s own name.

Give the panels Object names and use Go To Object to specify the panel you want to bring to the front.
