how can I scroll the datawindow to that column?

how can I scroll the datawindow to that column?

(OP)
setcolumn moves the cursor to the column you set as a parameter in the set column command but it doesn't scroll the datawindow to that column, so how can I scroll the datawindow to that column?

RE: how can I scroll the datawindow to that column?

Off the top of my head... In the event/function calling the SetColumn( ), you'll also need some describe/modify calls to the DW.

li_MyX = dw.Describe( "MyColumnName.X" )
dw.Modify( "DataWindow.HorizontalScrollPosition = " + String( ll_MyX ) )

RE: how can I scroll the datawindow to that column?

Describe returns a string so

ls_x = dw.describe("colname.X")
dw_modify("datawindow.horizontalscrollposition = " + ls_x)
