Selected Background is good. Thanks. However, I’m stuck on another piece of the problem.
I have a series of list boxes acting as menus. Each list contains a menu subset and each is identified by a dynamic property string ‘menuGroup’. The ‘Selected Background’ color for each box is changed based on whether its ‘menuGroup’ string matches a tag value. This works great.
The user navigates around (zooms in or out of levels of data detail). When they return to a previous zoom level, they return to the menu choice where they were when they left that level. That also works.
However, I need to be able to highlight the appropriate menu item to indicate where they returned to. They have not actively selected that menu item - they just selected the new zoom level.
For trial, I have this script on a button.
[code]list1 = event.source.parent.getComponent(menuNum).getComponent(‘List’)
label = fpmi.tag.getTagValue(’[Client]CurrentMenuItemLabel’)
‘menuNum’ is a previously defined string. The tag hold a string which is the last chosen item in the list box, at he zoom level they are returning to.
This works great on the test button, which is on the same screen as the menu lists. The problem is that the navigation button (the zoom button) is on a different screen from the menu list boxes. It seems that there is no event to reference.
Does this all make sense? Is there a way to get this done?
Thanks for any guidance.
