I got my answer for this from an earlier project coded by Jacque

if # user is searching and you show the controls then

focus on fld "searchString" --jg: force mobile keyboard
    select after fld "searchString"
    highlightSelectedTab "search"
  else -- hide it
    focus on nothing

end if

Another gem that I never knew about "focus on"

    1) how do we control when the mobile keyboard is opened. Sometimes I have left a field on a card with traversal on, and the mobile keyboard automatically open when you go to that card, even though the user hasn't actually tapped into the field (in this case a field for entering a search string)  what has been "settled on" as best practice? OR how do you do it?
