Script step for Tab control

Hello FM Mavens, 

I am in search of a script solution that would be the equivalent of a "Go to Tab X" in a portal. Filemaker.com has an old example file named EG6145.fp7 which can be downloaded but it does not work in FMPro 15. Any suggestions?

Thanks

OK it was a bit confusing but I figured it out. A tab has 2 "names", one "name" is defined in the Tab Control Setup, where it is actually the "label" on the tab (see Tab Width/Label Width etc dropdown menu) and the other "name" is defined in the Inspector where it is he name of the label as an object. The 2 have nothing to do with each other and have to be defined separately which is counterintuitive. Thanks for your reply!

Another wrinkle is that if you use Get(TriggerTargetPanel) you'll get TWO values: the number of the tab, and its object name (the one from the Inspector).

So you can't just say

Get(TriggerTargetPanel) = "myTabName"

... but instead have to use:

GetValue( Get(TriggerTargetPanel) ; 2 ) = "myTabName"
