    Return Value

    ReturnCode indicates success, failure, or an error if the cursor position reaches the screen boundary.
    Remarks

    Use the CursorRow and CursorColumn properties to verify the cursor location.

    Both "rows" and "columns" arguments can be positive or negative numbers. Negative numbers move the cursor back toward smaller rows and columns. The resulting row and column position is bound by the screen's dimensions. Rows and columns do not wrap when they reach the maximum or minimum row or column values.

    To move the cursor to a specific location, use the MoveCursorTo Method.
