Method TBrowse():colWidth() Foundation

Establishes the width of a column on the screen.

:colWidth( <nColPos> ) --> nColumnWidth
<nColPos> is a numeric value which indicates the position of the TBColumn object whose column width is to be changed.

colWidth() returns the width of a column as numerical value. If <nColPos> is not a numeric value or no matching TBColumn object exists, :colWidth() returns 0.


A numeric value <nColPos> indicating which TBColumn object to change must be passed to :colWidth(). The width of a column in the browse window is established independently of column separators. It can be determined by several factors: the width of a column header, column footer, the display width contained in instance variable :width, or even the actual data retrieved by the TBColumn object.
