The CursorRow property returns gets the row number where the cursor is currently positioned, or it sets the new row number for the cursor position.


%currentNumber = screen:CursorRow screen:CursorRow = newNumber

screen A reference to an instance of a Screen object.
newNum A numeric variable or expression to set the cursor's new row number.

Usage notes

  • Although you can set an absolute position for the cursor using CursorRow and CursorColumn, it is generally more useful to use the SetCursor subroutine to move the cursor to a particular field, independent of its absolute location on the screen.
