In Tab repeat layout the content in the main tab is not visible



In tabbed repeat layout, user has a main tab which is always visible however the additional tabs are also visible only when a check box is selected.

So now when any of the tab other than the main tab is made visible after checking the checkbox and then again unchecked, then the main tab do gets the focus but the content of it is not visible.

Perform the following local-change step:

On "Check box 1" checkbox add below action:
1. Post Value
2. Refresh this section with "Disable submit on refresh" option checked.

On the First Tab (Tab 1) set "Active when" to true.
