edge-position

Arguments: grid-section-any

Returns the position of grid-section within a grid-widget or the position of a grid-subsection within its parent grid-section. The value is a non-negative integer indicating a distance in pixels.

For a grid-row-section, the distance is from the top of the grid interior to the top edge of the grid-row-section. For a grid-column-section, the distance is from the left of the grid interior to the left edge of the grid-column-section.

For a grid-row, the distance is from the top of the set of rows in the grid-row-section of the row to the top edge of the row. For a grid-column, the distance is from the left edge of the set of columns in the grid-column-section of the column to the left edge of the column. Note that this value is not affected by the scrolling of the grid-section, since the value is relative to the scrolling contents of the section rather than to their position in the widget window.

Compatibility note: Through version 6.0, the value returned for a grid-row or grid-column was equal to the value described here added to the edge-position of the parent grid-section. This was not an intuitive value, and so the function has been changed to match the current documentation.
