Event on the tab layout do not get triggered



Click actions defined on Tabbed Layout Groups are not triggered when clicking on the tab, instead they are triggered with clicking on the Dyanamic Layout content.

For example, actions are executed on click of the green area shown below and not the red area.

Error Messages

No error messages

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a Tabbed Layout Group.
  2. Add Dynamic Layouts within the group.
  3. Add click actions to the Dynamic Layout as shown below.

      4. Open application and click on the related tab 
      5. No action has been triggered.

Root Cause

This issue was determined to be a product enhancement.

Prior to 7.2.1 the click action was triggered by clicking on the tab content (the dynamic layout itself highlighted in green below) rather than the tab header (in red below) when the layout forms part of the tabbed layout group.  This is consistent with the behavior of a click event on a dynamic layout outside of a repeating group.


This functionality has been enhanced in 7.2.1 so that click actions defined as described above will trigger on click of the tab, rather than the content.
