scrollbar position on data grid

Post by jalz » Thu Oct 01, 2015 11:08 pm

Hey Guys,

Whats the command to get and set the scrollbar position of the of a data grid?

I've tried the following, but not had any luck as it returns 0

put the scroll of group "dg_data" into tScrollPosition

put the vscroll of group "grp_scrollbar" into tScrollPosition

Thanks
Jalz

Hi Jalz,

please get your copy of the datagrid docs here:
http://lessons.runrev.com/m/datagrid

The relevant parts:
...
dgHScroll
- get the dgHScroll
- set the dgHScroll to of group "DataGrid" pInteger
- Get/set the horizontal scroll of the data grid. This only applies to tables as forms do not scroll horizontally.
dgHScrollPercent
- get the dgHScrollPercent
- set the dgHScrollPercent of group "DataGrid" to pPercent
- Get/set the percentage of the horizontal scroll. A number between 0 and 1. This only applies to tables as forms do not scroll horizontally.
...
dgVScroll
- get the dgVScroll
- set the dgVScroll of group "DataGrid" to pInteger - Get/set the vertical scroll of the data grid.
dgVScrollPercent
- get the dgVScrollPercent
- set the dgVScrollPercent of group "DataGrid" to pPercent
- Get/set the percentage of the vertical scroll. A number between 0 and 1.
...

Best

Klaus

Even though it is obvious there is a small typo in the documentation which is:

set the dgHScroll to of group "DataGrid" pInteger

should be

set the dgHScroll of group "DataGrid" to pInteger

Paul
