Button to Save and go to Next TAB on a form

  • 1.  Button to Save and go to Next TAB on a form

    Hi all!

    I'm trying to insert a button at the bottom of each TAB of my form that will take the user to the top of the next TAB. I found some old posts from 2019 and tried the solution of setting up a js page, some variables and a formula rich text field:


    Here is what I have put together from looking at a few different posts:

    Formula Rich Text Field: Custom Save and Next Tab

    & "saveAndNextTab.js"
    & [customButtonScript2]
    & [customButtonStyleSKW]
    & "Next tab"
    & [customButtonEnd]

    Variable: customButtonScript1

    <a href='javascript:($.getScript("https://XXXXX.quickbase.com/db/YYYYYYY?a=dbpage&pagename=

    Variable: customButtonScript2


    Variable: customButtonStyleSKW

    ' class='Vibrant Tall' style='font-size:14px; color:white; background:#6BBD57; white-space:nowrap;'>

    Variable: customButtonEnd


    Code Page: SaveAndNextTab.js

    var nextTabLink=$("li.ui-tabs-selected").next("[style!='display:none']").children("a");
    var noErrorDialog=$('#qbDialog').length==0;
    if( noErrorDialog ){

    So, a couple of issues:

    1. This button saves the record for me, but does not move to the top of the next TAB. (I don't get any errors when I click on it)

    2. I'm getting a pop-up that my formula rich text field includes unsupported content. Is there an updated "legal" way to do this, that won't potentially break on me?

    Thanks in advance for your help!

    The short answer is no.  There is not a way to move to the next Tab or land the user on a particular Tab.  As you said, javascript is being phased out in August so there is no point in gong down that path.
