    Default Go to a field?

    By using action scripting, which command is it that I can goto to the field I want? In other words what i use to use as go to. I dont want to use the tab order either.

    I think it's Object properties, then Activate an object. But I seem to recall that it does not always work. But usually it does.

    But the Xbasic is rather simple. To "go to" any object, simply put this code in the OnPush event of a button:

    objectname.activate()

    where objectname is the name of the field (or any other object) that you want to go to.

    Thanks guys. I had thought that but I had used it before and it didnt work. I guess in times like this xbasic is the best tool.
