I know you've figured this out now, but just wanted to add a couple
things. If you click on the tab button, you shouldn't need to set the
selected tab at all, it should be automatic. The only time you'd need to
script the menuhistory is if you want to do it remotely for some reason.
For example, I have a stack that contains two different tab button
backgrounds. One tab navigates to the other background. Because the tab
button on the second background isn't the same one that was clicked in
the first background, I need to script the selected tab when navigating
When scripting it, be sure to lock messages, set the menuhistory, and
then unlock messages. If you don't lock messages you can get into an
infinite loop in some cases.
For looking up info on tabbed buttons: the button is a type of menu
button. There is brief documentation in the dictionary under the
menuhistory entry, but I agree it isn't much.
