Description 

This script step uses an object name to identify an object, so you must assign a unique object name to each object on a layout that you want to go to.

Notes 

If this script step specifies an object on a tab panel or a slide panel that is not the frontmost panel, the specified object is selected and the panel it is on moves to the front of the panel control.

If the script step specifies a field on a popover, the popover opens.

Example 1 

Navigates to a text field named "First Name".

Go to Object [Object Name: "First Name"]

Example 2 

Navigates between different tabs of a tab control.

If [Invoices::Status = "Paid"]
Go to Object [Object Name: "Invoice Statement Tab"]
Else If [Invoices::Status = "Unpaid"]
Go to Object [Object Name: "Invoice Payment Tab"]
End If

Example 3 

Navigates to either the "Paid" tab or the "Unpaid" tab in a tab control depending on the value of Invoices::Status.

Go to Layout ["Invoice Details"]
Go to Object [Object Name: Invoices::Status]
