expression. CurTargetX

expression A variable that represents a ComboBox object.

Remarks

The CurTargetX property retrieves the preferred position, measured in himetric units. A himetric is 0.0001 meter.

The target position is relative to the left edge of the control. If the length of a line is less than the value of the CurTargetX property, you can place the insertion point at the end of the line. The value of CurTargetX changes when the user sets the insertion point or when the CurX property is set. CurTargetX is read-only.

The return value is valid when the object has focus.

You can use CurTargetX and CurX to move the insertion point as the user scrolls through the contents of a multiline ComboBox. When the user moves the insertion point to another line of text by scrolling the content of the object, CurTargetX specifies the preferred position for the insertion point. CurX is set to this value if the line of text is longer than the value of CurTargetX. Otherwise, CurX is set to the end of the line of text.
