Go To Object  Unexpected!

Hi everyone,

 

Almost every day, I see potentially dangerous uses of scripted Go To Object[] particularly ( but not exclusively ) when used with tab controls. Even skilled FM Developers can be bitten by this unexpected behavior.

 

I just posted an example over on FMForums but not all of you frequent that forum so I thought I should post here as well. My apology that I haven't had a chance to post this sooner.

There is a simple sample zip for version 11 and 12 which ( hopefully clearly ) walks through the issue for you to see it happening. I also throw out my theories on explaining the behavior but I might be wrong so I am open to correction and input.

 

Thank you!!
