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 there.

thank you. The tool tip on the tool palettes says "Tab Panel" so I assumed that was it's name. Thanks!
