Group Fields Together in Different Tabs

Hi all,

How do I configure an app so that some of my fields are visible on one tab, but other fields which are used less often are tucked away on another tab that needs to be clicked on to bring them to the front of the app?

Hi @Mupps


There are few ways to achieve having different tabs on same screen.


Here is how I do it in my apps.


in the Screen.OnVisible have this function:


Add 2 (or more depending how many tabs you want) buttons.


Change the Button.OnSelect to:


Change the number depending on the button so Button1 will have _ScreenTab:1, Button2 will have _ScreenTab:2


Add your content for the first tab on the screen. Select all items that belong to this tab. Add them to a group. Select the group and in the Group.Visible put the following:

  _ScreenTab = 1,

Change the condition depending on which Group you are working with.



Now when you click your buttons only the required content will show on the screen for specific tab. 

Thanks for your suggestion @Anonymous.  I'll need some time to digest this as it's more complicated than I'm used to!  I'll get back to you if this proves to be a solution.

Hi @Anonymous,

Can you explain your instruction "Select all items that belong to this tab.  Add them to a group."
