Detect if tab has focus
how can i detect if a tab (or any other object) has the focus?
I can set the focus like this : Forms![Main]![&Fields].Set
but instead i want to detect if it has the focus.

Have you considered storing a valiable on the click event of the tabs?
To find which control has focus use: Forms!FormName.ActiveContr
You can use then in a If:Then statement to check your tab.
Dim ActiveCTL as Control
ActiveCTL = Forms!FormName.ActiveContr
If YourControl = ActiveCTL then
' Do something if True
' Do something if False
I'll have to check this out tomorrow morning as I typing on the fly (dangerous for me), but think I'm in the BallPark...
