Left property (field)


The Left property specifies the horizontal position of a field (in pixels).


field.Left [= integer]


field – A window field object.

integer – The distance from the field’s left border to the window’s left border, measured in pixels. Your operating system’s settings for the active window border specifies the width of the border.


The Left property moves the field and the field’s caption. It does not move any buttons associated with the field, such as a lookup button. You must move those fields separately.

Setting the Left property to 0 will align the field with the left edge of the window. However, the field’s caption will move off the window area.
