Additional Comments
Expander triangle

Use the formattedLeft property to find the boundary of a group or chunk, or to determine how far to scroll horizontally to bring a chunk of text into the viewable area of a field.

Value:

The formattedLeft of a group or card is an integer.

This property is read-only and cannot be set.

Comments:

If you specify a card or group, the formattedLeft reports the distance in pixels between the left edge of the stack window and the left edge of the leftmost object in the card or group. (Objects whose visible property is false are ignored.)

If the leftmost object is to the left of the stack window's left edge, the formattedLeft is a negative number.

The formattedLeft of a chunk in a field is the distance from the left edge of the stack window to the left edge of an imaginary box containing the text in the chunk.
