[SOLVED] HTML Container Questions
I've been playing around with Tab and Accordion containers (html GUI)in AppStudio for the first time recently. I have a couple of questions I can't seem to figure out:

1. How do you force a control or chart to stay on a particular page? When I drag the chart over (from Tasks & Animations pane), sometimes it goes on page one, sometimes on page two. Then, when I drag the page around the screen, some of the charts/controls move with the page while other's don't. Is there a way to set which page/position you want an object to be on?

2. On Accordion containers, I can figure out how to rename each page, but when I run the html, all of the page titles are layered one on top of another on the first page, not on the page I actually named.

Has anyone else experienced either of these issues and can help me with a solution? Thanks

I believe I've figured out part of issue #1. If I use the "Relationships" section to create a relationship between a set of controls and my chart, the controls move with the chart. However, when I add a new control to page 2 of a tabbed container, it shows through on tab 1. I've tried "send to back", etc. but that moves the control relative to the container, not the page.

Since there have been no other posts I think your best course of action is to open a case with tech support.

I also discovered that if you select the container page before dragging the chart onto it (along with the prompted for amper variables), everything looks as though it goes where it needs to. I'll open a case if there is a reason I must use an accordion container. Thanks
