<List Box control>.Position(<Element index>)
<List Box control>: Control name
Name of List Box control to use.
<Element index>: Integer
Index of the element to be displayed at the beginning of the List Box control.
A WLanguage error occurs if this parameter is greater than the number of elements found in the List Box control (returned by <List Box>.Count).

<Result> = <List Box control>.Position()
<Result>: Integer
Index of the first element displayed in the specified List Box control.
<List Box control>: Control name
Name of List Box control to use.
Remarks

Displaying an element at the beginning of a List Box control (syntax 1)

The element displayed at the beginning of the List Box control may differ from the desired element. <List Box>.Position positions the element that allows to display a maximum of rows at the beginning of the control. If there are not enough elements displayed below the specified element, this element cannot be displayed at the beginning of the control.
For example, the "Smith Jimmy" element cannot be displayed at the beginning of the List Box control: there arre not enough elements displayed below this element.

Limitations

<List Box>.Position cannot be used on List Box controls based on a data file in "manual" mode that use a bouncing scrollbar.
Reminder:
  • A List Box control based on a data file in "manual" mode is a List Box control programmatically linked to a data file.
  • With a bouncing scrollbar, you can make the scrollbar scroll by keeping the mouse button pressed on the scrollbar button or by keeping the arrow keys (top or down arrow) pressed.

Miscellaneous

  • To display an element at the beginning of a Table control or to get the index of the first element displayed in a Table control, use <Table>.Position.
  • <List Box>.Position can be used on a "Combo Box" table column.
