Tile List selection after pressing embedded Image button


I am working on SAP Work Manager 6.0 customizing using Agentry 6.1.3. I have this tile list that contains items. At the bottom of this tile list, I have a button that targets the selected item on the tile list. This button has an action which changes the icon of the selected item when pressed and also executes an edit transaction that prints/changes the selected item property values based on rules. After selecting a particular item from the tile list and clicking on this button, the selected item's image changes to the image that I want, but the selection highlighter toggles and always moves to the first item on the tile list. I have tried implementing a list selection but it somehow always ignores this and always toggles back to the first item on the tile list. I would like it to stay on the selected item, whose image has just been changed. How would I go about having the selection highlighter stay on the same item before and after pressing the button?

Your help is greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

    What client are you using? I have seen this behavior too on iPad where the selected row gets reset after an action, but I didn't try to correct it. I would have thought a list selection at the end would re-select the correct row. How did you try to implement this?

      I did some more research on this (because I got this issue again). For whatever reason, it seems to be important for the action containing the list selection step to target one of the following (I am not sure because in my case, it is the same)

      - the parent of the collection displayed in the list tile view, or

      - the object displayed on the screen set where the list tile view is located

      for further details, see Oh ListSelection Step, thou art a heartless bit**!
