How To Trigger A Button Tabbed Into?
You can use the tab key to quickly navigate from field to field on a record. That has been the case for a very long time in FileMaker. You can also setup your database so that you can tab into a button or a tab panel.

ABOUT THE TABBING INTO A TAB PANEL
You can setup the tab order of a layout to tab into the first (default) tab of a tab object. After that, you can move from tab to tab in the tab object with the left and right arrow keys. Then you can execute the command to go to that tab hitting the spacebar.

ABOUT TABBING INTO A BUTTON
You can tab into a button as well and executing the button works just like choosing a selected tab. Once you have tabbed into a button, hit the spacebar on your keyboard and the button will fire its related action.
