Refresh Section Layout Group(TAB) focus moves to first tab



User has created a section with multiple Tabs, using Layout group (Default/Tab).

In the same section, user configured a button with 'Refreash-This Section' action against the Click event.

During runtime, when user is active in any tab other than the first tab and clicked Refresh button, after refresh action complete, tab switches back to first tab. 
Current State before refresh does not  get maintained.

The same scenario is happening for Submit failure also. If user is in third tab and the tab contains fields with Server-side validation. 

After submitting the Form, if the validation gets failed, tab 1 gets opened to user instead of last active tab before Submit Action( third tab).
