Stored procedures
Moves a column in a Table or TreeView Table control.
  • To move a row in a Table control, use TableMoveLine.
  • This function is equivalent to the following operation performed at run time: click the header of a column and move the column while keeping the left mouse button down.
// Move the "COL_ProductPrice" column
// on the far left side in the "TABLE_ProductTable" control
TableMoveColumn(TABLE_ProductTable, COL_ProductPrice, 1)
TableMoveColumn(<Table control> , <Column> , <Subscript of destination column>)
<Table control>: Control name
Name of control to use. This control can correspond to:
  • a Table control.
  • a TreeView Table control.
If this parameter corresponds to an empty string (""), the control to which the current event belongs will be used.
<Column>: Control name
Name of the column to move. The name of a column is returned by TableEnumColumn.
<Subscript of destination column>: Integer
New position of the column in the control. The first column (even if it is invisible) is column #1.

Use conditions

TableMoveColumn can be used on:
  • a browsing or memory control,
  • a single-selection or multiselection control.

The different types of column subscripts

Two types of subscripts are available for the columns:
  • Subscript of the visible position: subscript of the column at run time.
  • Creation subscript: subscript of the column when creating the Table control in the editor.
These subscripts are different if the columns have been moved by the user.
TableMoveColumn is using the subscript of visible position.

Move and anchored column

  • If the column is moved among some anchored columns, this column automatically becomes anchored.
  • If the column is moved outside the anchored columns, this column is not anchored anymore.

Move and horizontal Table control

  • The rows will be moved if TableMoveColumn is used on an horizontal Table control.
  • To move the columns in an horizontal Table control, use TableMoveLine.

Retrieving the displayed position of a moved column
Once you move several columns, other columns will also change their position. Use TableColumnSubscription to find the position of the column as it is displayed.
With Columns - COL_name, COL_number, COL_size
Move COL_size - TableMoveColumn(MyTable, "COL_size", 1)
Where is COL_number?
TableEnumColumn(MyTable, 3) will return "COL_size"
TableColumnSubscript(MyTable,"COL_number",tcpDisplay) returns 3
