Handle Attributes and Methods Reference : INNER-CHARS attribute

INNER-CHARS attribute

The number of data columns within a selection list or editor widget.
Data type: INTEGER
Access: Readable/Writeable
Applies to: EDITOR widget, SELECTION-LIST widget
This attribute is more portable than the WIDTH-CHARS attribute.
For editor widgets, this attribute can set the word wrap margin for the WORD-WRAP attribute. For more information, see the WORD-WRAP attribute reference entry.
If a selection list is not already realized and you reference its INNER-CHARS attribute, the AVM realizes the widget.
