Hi, thank you for testing,
in fact, it is much more easier to leave the tabs and display the filtered items in tabs, but:
So, some extra smart function which will detect that there are the same parameter names in results and will add some info about tab name maybe could somehow solve it
Anyway it is very "unhappy" to call two parameters in one component with the same name. Tabs which can differentiate between the parameters with the same name are only "design" feature, so listing the parameters in other way (not using tabs) can be even confusing when two parameters in one component have the same name
The real issue is that a form should never be spawn into different tabs. This is stupid and inaccessible!
Other than that, this is a workaround Joomla's huge problem of messing data editing/creation with the display options. The solution is to completely separate those two different tasks (layout/data entry) and keep the only reference that is needed: the layout input!
