Focus shifts to previous tabs on clicking layout group tabs



On clicking layout group tabs, the focus shifts to the previous tabs.

Error Messages

Not Applicable

Steps to Reproduce

  1. Create a section with multiple layout group tabs
  2. Configure another section with layout group tabs (nested structure of layout group tabs) in the first tab
  3. Click a child tab in tab 1 at run time
  4. Click a parent tab. The focus shifts to the previous tab  

Root Cause

A defect in Pegasystems’ code or rules. The issue occurs when nested layout groups are present. When activating a tab of the outer layout group, _getActiveTabElement API of the layout group
does not account for the active tab in the inner layout group. This confuses the active tab index of the outer layout group.


Apply HFix-49107.
