Works with


Data type




For every line in display memory, Reflection attempts to remember the left-most column that was entered from the keyboard, as opposed to any preceding material on the line received from the host. Reflection can then distinguish the host-prompt portion of each line from the user-entered portion. Under some circumstances, it is impossible for Reflection to tell which column was the first user-keyed column. When that happens, the value of StartColumn determines the left-most column to be transmitted.


The default value is 1.

The range of values is from 1 up to the value of the DisplayColumns property.
