Function definition: (Copy & paste into FileMaker's Edit Custom Function window)
Gets a return-delimited list of the object names of the frontmost (nested) tabs. Does not include sub-tabs whose parent is not ALSO frontmost. No recursion. Inspired by Todd Geist's similar function, but this only returns tabs whose parent is ALSO frontmost. Avoids recursion by building a calculation string that is then evaluated. To see how it works, remove the Evaluate near the end and look at the 'mainCode' variable.

|Is this for sticky tabs? i.e. return to a layout to find the tabs in the same place you left them (Without going to a new window then closing it).|

|Absolutely. You can have a script that loops over the values stored from this, going to each in turn.|

|Nicely done. Simple, non-recursive.|
