The EXPANDABLE attribute has the same behavior as the FIT-LAST-COLUMN attribute. Therefore, if the -expandbrow parameter is specified at startup, the FIT-LAST-COLUMN attribute is set to TRUE for each browse in that session.
Note: Progress Software Corporation recommends that you use the FIT-LAST-COLUMN attribute instead of the EXPANDABLE attribute. This recommendation includes replacing EXPANDABLE with FIT-LAST-COLUMN in your current code.
For more information on these attributes, see OpenEdge Development: ABL Reference.
