Intercept the menuPick message:

  on menuPick newTab, oldTab
    go card newTab
  end menuPick

Hmm. I'd thought there was a How To for this in the docs (to lead you to
the menuPick message), but it looks like the closest we have is "How to
switch between button tabs" - close but not quite what you're asking for.
I'll add a new topic. (The easiest way to find this How To is to go to the
Development Guide in the main docs stack, then click "Windows and Dialog

This will get easier when the docs are fully indexed.
