ABL Reference
Handle Attributes and Methods Reference : CURSOR-OFFSET attribute


The character offset of the cursor within a widget.
Data type: INTEGER
Access: Readable/Writeable
Applies to: BROWSE widget (cell), EDITOR widget, FILL-IN widget
Assigning a value to CURSOR-OFFSET moves the text cursor to the specified character offset. If the editor widget is not already realized, the AVM realizes the widget when you query the CURSOR-OFFSET attribute.
In Windows, both the regular editor and the large editor support CURSOR-OFFSET.
For browses, this attribute applies only to fill-in and combo-box browse columns.
For browse columns, CURSOR-OFFSET specifies the character offset of the cursor within a browse-cell of the browse column.
