[Agentry] Identifying the selected object in multi-tab lists on iPad

hi all,

On iPad, we can create a multi-tab lists to group objects based on different criteria as shown below.

In my implementation, I created a Tile Display which holds a screen set called “Lists” with multiple list screens.

Once we select an object in one of the lists, we need to either display details of the it or execute some transactions on that object. Then I had difficulty to find a way to identify the selected object. Since this is a screen set inside a tile display. I first tried to see if I can drill down on the tile display.

As shown above, I cannot go further on the tile display.

Then I tried to see if I can find the object on the “Lists” screen set. There are four screens each of which has “selected object” option. During the application’s execution, the user may switch between lists/tabs. Is there any method we can figure out which tab/screen the user is currently on? With that piece of information, I can identify the screen and then the object accordingly.

My development environment is 6.0.42 and iOS 7.1.

If this is not correct way to accomplish such function, is there any work around available to present a workable multi-lists tile on iPad?

Thanks a lot.

    You want to go with the Lists screen set idea. Right click the "A" list screen and change context to "Current List Screen". This is how you can generically reference the current list screen in the Lists screen set. Then right click on "Selected Inspection Object" under the list and change the context to "Current Object" so this is ambiguous as well. Now you can use this method to target whatever object is currently selected on the current list screen on that inner screen set, and pass it to whatever action you require. The target will look something like: "Lists Screen Set -> Current List Screen -> Current Object.
