COLS - Display Columns Line

Syntax


COLS


Operands


None


Description


The COLS line command will display the column-position (=COLS>) line, which looks like:


=COLS> ----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5


When there are TABS in effect, each tab column will be shown in the COLS display as an underscore.  


Suppose you had Tabs set every 5 columns.  When you displayed the COLS line, it would look like this:


=COLS> ----+----1----+----2----+----3----+----4----+----5



To display the column-position line:



1.

Type COLS in the line command area of any line.


2.

Press Enter.


3.

The column-position line is inserted.



Note: You can use the COLS line command with the BNDS line command to help check and reposition the bounds settings.  



To remove the column-position line from the panel:


1.

You can either type D in the line command area that contains the =COLS> flag or type RESET on the Command line.


2.

Press Enter.  


3.

The =COLS> line is removed from the display.  




SPFLite also supports a Primary command  COLS which displays a COLS line at the top of the screen at all times. To display this line, use the COLS Primary command.
