How obtain first visible column in DBGrid?

      Hey!

I want to to read what column is the first visible in a DBGrid component at any given time. With a StringGrid it's easy to obtain, with the LeftCol property, but DBGrid doesn't seem to have a similar property. Anybody know any other way?

Thanks!

What about this? :

procedure TForm1.Button2Click(Sender: TObject);
var
   i: Integer;

begin
 i := 0;
 while (table1.fields[i].visible = false) and (i <= table1.FieldCount-1) do inc(i);
end;

The first visible field is the first visible column.

Have fun,
