Member variable XbpColumn():picture Foundation

Contains the PICTURE format for formatted display.

Attribute: EXPORTED
Data type: Character ("")

This instance variable contains a character string that defines the PICTURE format used to control the display format of the values displayed by the column object. For detailed information about the PICTURE string used as a formatting function and formatting mask, see the function Transform(). The default value of :picture is the empty string ("") which means values are displayed unformatted.

The value in :picture is only used by columns of type XBPCOL_TYPE_TEXT. Otherwise, the value assigned to :picture has no effect. See the instance variable :type for further information on column types.
