tabbed table - option to select an initial tab to be opened other than the first tab
Use this IdeaSpace to post ideas about Domino Designer.
it would be nice to have the option to select one tab as the default to be opened tab in a tabbed table.
currently it will open the first tab, sometimes this is not desirable.

Or have some table API to control the tabs/rows/cells.

Using a programmable table with the option 'Also show tabs so user can pick row', you can do this very easily.
E.g. If your table has a name 'Table' and row/tab 1 is named 'A', and row/tab 2 is named 'B', then, just adding a cfd field $Table with a value of "B" will show the secon tab upon opening.
I use this frequently even with profile variables, to allow a user to choose wich is the preferred 'opening' tab. You can even use this technique to 'store' the last used tab.
So I demote, as this solution is way more flexible then setting a default tab in designer.

The programmable table option works, but unfortunately it seems to be persistent. If I remember right, an F9 shoves the table back to the opening tab. It takes making the programmed field @Unavailable before everything settles down.
So it works, but it's kind of hard to use.
I think it needs some heavy documentation on how to make this happen in a supportable way across multiple versions and deliveries. Either that or there should be some way to do the programming more nicely.
