Repositions web view to given control.
If you moved control in layout mode, this can move the web view back to the new position.
Also useful to switch between different locations on the layout.

Note for Windows: For Windows this function is only supported in FileMaker Pro when using Internet Explorer as engine behind the Web Viewer, but not when Microsoft Edge/Chrome engine is used. But the functions should still work if with Web Viewers created via plugin using WebView.Create and WebView.CreateWithControl as those still use Internet Explorer.
