The GetPercentile method returns the specified value's percentile relative to the StepStringClass object's upper and lower boundaries. For example, if the bounds are 'A' and 'Z' then GetPercentile('M') returns 50.

Implementation: The SetLimit method sets the StepStringClass object's upper and lower boundaries.

Return Data Type: BYTE

IF FIELD() = ?Locator                 !focus on locator field

 IF EVENT() = EVENT:Accepted          !if accepted

  MyBrowse.TakeAcceptedLocator        !BrowseClass handles it

                                      !position thumb to match:

  ?MyList{PROP:VScrollPos}=MyStep.GetPercentile(Locator)
