Issue

The Show Tab rule configuration requires the Tab Name, but displays the Tab Title when configured.

Symptoms

K2 5.1 (up to November 2018 CU FP5):
In K2 Designer, when configuring the "Show a tab" action you operate with tab names - you select the tab name and once selected, the tab name is displayed. But as soon as you close the rule edit dialog and open it again, it displays tab title. This is inconsistent.

If you work with tab names in UI while configuring the rule you would expect that the same should be displayed for saved rules.

Resolution

You can use "Show a Form control" action instead of "Show a tab", which consistently shows the name of the control in the rule edit dialogues and can be used with tabs as well.
