form behavior: tabs

    I've seen some older questions about this, and I'm hoping there's a recent solution.

    If the user leaves a form (to create a child record, for example) is there a way to make sure they come back to the same tab they were just working on?

    This post may help: https://community.quickbase.com/quickbase/topics/using-z-rurl-and-rdr-in-formula-url-fields

    The link describes how you can use "&z="&Rurl() and rdr to return to the desired location after adding the record.  This assumes that you are adding the child record using a button.

    I do not believe it will return to the tab that you launched off of.  It will land on the first tab.

    What's the easiest solution to get back to the same tab? How come adding to the url #tab_t5 won't help?

    ​Thanks

    If you use the native suffix

    & "&z=" & Rurl()

     on the Add Child record it will return to the correct tab after an Add Child operation.

    Thanks for the reply. I am not adding records I am editing the current record via act=API_EditRecord in my url and adding & "&z=" & Rurl() to my url will not take me to the same tab. Any idea of a quick solution for this?

    Thanks

    Ahh, yes.  That is a big problem no one has been able to solve.  There "might" be solution on this forum but if there are they are crazy complicated.  There are some schemes,  for example posted to walk though to the Next Tab when saving.

    Mark, you're right.  I misread this one.
