Title

Capturing Tab Object Name

Post

Hello,

Have a layout with several tabs.  In layout mode, clicking on the tab name field, using the Inspector, have given each tab a Name by entering that name in the Name field under the Position tab in the Inspector.  I understand that this sets the object name.

Then to test whether I had given the tabs the correct names I created this script:

Show Custom Dialog ["test"; Get(ActiveLayoutObjectName)]

Then attached this to the OnPanelChange script trigger which is attached to the tab name [click twice on the tab while in layout mode].

When I click on a tab in Browse mode [I'm assuming that this makes the tab "active".] I get a nice dialog box named "test" but the contents are blank, though clicking from tab to tab does execute the script trigger.  What is wrong, please?

Thanks very much,
