Programmieren mit dBASE PLUS: firstColumn
Index of the column to be displayed in the left-most unlocked column position.
The firstColumn property is an index, starting with the left-most unlocked column equal to one, that specifies the first column to be displayed after the locked columns. Setting this property will cause the selected column to be scrolled to the left-most unlocked column display position. While the firstColumn property is a writable, its value is not streamed to the source code by the form designer, so when the form containing the grid is opened during run mode, the firstColumn property is initialized to its default value of one.
As implied above, the lockedColumns property affects the display position and the index values associated with the firstColumn property. To avoid unexpected results, these properties are implemented so any change in the lockedColumns property will reset the firstColumn property to one.
