Try a different kind of layout object such as a field or button that can receive the focus when go to object specifies it's object name.
Thank you for the reply.
So, Go to Object will not work for a named group? I've also tried for a label but it does not work either. I guess these are not considered objects?
It does work for a field. This is less than ideal for me, because it pushes the label above the field off screen, and I lose that for context. It's not the end of the world though. I can live with this.
I was able to solve this by changing the label above the field to a button that does nothing. This allows me to go to it and then tab into the field below.
They are indeed objects. But go to object is intended to put the "focus" on the named object. It's that "change of focus" that scrolls the layout.
Not all objects can receive such a focus. Putting the focus on a field puts the cursor into that field. On a button, the button highlights so that you can use the enter key to "click" the button.
Fields, buttons, portals, plus tab control, slide control or popover panels can receive the focus. Layout text, graphic objects, and pictures placed directly on the layout cannot receive the focus. Grouped objects other than objects "grouped" into a button using button setup also cannot receive the focus.
Thus a safe object to use as a "scroll point" might be a "do nothing" button placed on the layout for that purpose. Multiple copies, of a global field, each with a different object name might also be used.
Thank you again for these helpful insights!
