Finding the Hilited Field or Button

Post by JereMiami » Thu Nov 24, 2022 1:31 pm

Mobile keyboard is popping up when the card opens and I was wondering if there is a quick and dirty way to find out which field or button is being hilited without going through each property inspector. Any thoughts?

You can try with:

Code: Select all

on openCard
    // code
    focus on nothing
end openCard

Or this way, if that is what you are after.
