Clear specific selection when selecting tab in container?

Question from a newbie here.  I have a container, with three tabs,  a few criteria selection are set by default when clicking on the sheet.  Is it possible to automatically clear some of the current selections when clicking on a specific tab within the container?

Appreciate the help

Thank you so much Evandro, but within this tab(sheet) I have a container

with 4 tabs, how can I activate triggers to each of the 4 container parts?

I think we have to wait this feature in a future version, because don't have triggers in container object in current version of Qlikview (11.20SR4).

If you used a button to make the objects appear you could the the same effect as a container object (from the user perspective) and have the selections applied with the same button.

The drawback will be this setup will be harder to maintain.
