Hi Ueliweb,

The property you are looking for is the menuHistory, in a Tab Menu this property controls the hilited Tab Button.

So a simple way to control the Menu Tabs on a card is to add an openCard handler to switch the hilited tab, for example on the first card…

on openCard
   set the menuHistory of btn "MyTabMenu" to "1" ## Where "1" corresponds to the first Tab.
end openCard

and the same for each other card accessed from the Tab Menu, just changing the corresponding number.

HTH

Merry Christmas,

Paul
