Tab-Canvases and F2

I just found an interesting undocumented feature:

While the cursor is inside a tab-canvas you can press F2

Then you see a little list-item in the upper-right corner of the tab-canvas. There you can move up, down and press Enter or Return.

This starts the WHEN-TAB-PAGE-CHANGED-trigger. Here you can do whatever you want. For example a navigation to a block and starting a query.

Have fun

That is the "List Tab Pages" key. If you press the "Show Keys" key (ctrl-K) you may discover more keys you did not know about.

Thanks Michael, you are right! Sometimes you discover something and think: Oh... I don't know it, ... so it must be new ! :-)

One look into the fmrweb.res and there is the key !

Btw, this list appears automatically if you don't have enough space for all your tab pages.
