Button in portal does not work properly



I am creating a DB and there is a layout that has a portal on it and that is linked to another table. The list shows the current customers. When I show this layout, no records are highlighted and all that that works fine.

Now what I am trying to achieve is simply this: when no line is selected, I want a button at the button of the page to read NEW and when a line is selected, I want the button to read MODIFY. Now, from what I could gather in the forum, I guess the best way to do that would be to use a transparent TAB PANEL with two pages, each one with the appropriate button. Each tab would obviously be named accordingly. Since, by default, no lines would be selected when I get on the page, I have set that TAB PANEL as showing the NEW button by default, and again all that is ok.

The problem I am having is that when I click on one field that is on the portal, it does not run whatever script I selected. I even tried a simple message to troubleshoot and it did not work either. But if I copy the field elsewhere on the layout, it does work properly.

Any ideas as to what I am doing wrong?
