Short Name: Point To Row Column

Requires: Base Development System

Class: TreeControl Methods

To Use: Create a method.

Converts a pixel coordinate to a tag-column pair in the coordinates of the control. This method also returns whether the point is inside the bounds of the content rectangle and whether the point is within the custom symbol of the cell. The method returns the tag TREE_COLUMN_HEADERS when you wire a point that is within the tree's column headers.

Note  The Point to Row Column method does not return an error for points that lie within a control but outside of the actual cell area for that control, such as the scroll bar. Use the InBounds parameter to verify that a point lies within the cell area of a control.
