Table Entry

Insert table entry

Description

Specifies the format of a table entry.

This component must be a child of a descendant of a Table Row component. Add Paragraph, Image, List, and other components to define the content of the table entry.

    Note:   Spanning columns and rows is not supported when the File format for generating the report is set to Word Document(RTF) or Rich Text Format.

Properties

  • Horizontal alignment: Use the Entry horizontal alignment setting of the Table Column Specification component for the column in which the table entry appears, or explicitly set the Horizontal alignment property.

    • Left: Aligns content with the left side of the column.

    • Center: Aligns content in the middle of the column.

    • Right: Aligns content with the right side of the column.

    • Double justified: Justifies the left and right sides the entry content, to avoid ragged left and right alignment.

  • Vertical alignment: Positions the table entry content relative to the top and bottom of the row in which the table entry appears.

    Use this property to override the Entry vertical alignment setting of the Table Row component in which this table entry appears.

  • Column separator: Use this property to override the Column separator setting of the Table Column Specification component for the column in which the table entry appears.

    • True: Draws a vertical line at the right edge of the column for this table entry.

    • False: Draws no vertical line at the right edge of the column for this table entry.

  • Row separator: Use this property to override the Row separator setting of the Table Row component for the row in which the table entry appears.

    • True: Draws a horizontal line at the bottom of the row, below the table entry.

    • False: Does not draw a horizontal line at the bottom of the row, below the table entry.

  • Background color: Specifies the background color of the table entry. You can:

    • Use Auto to apply the Background Color setting of the Table Row component in which the table entry appears.

    • Select a color from a list of colors.

    • Enter %<expr>.

    • Enter an RGB (truecolor) value as #RRGGBB. For example, #0000ff is a shade of blue.

  • Span start column name: Specifies the name of the column (as defined by the Table Column Specification component) to use as the first (left side) of a set of spanned columns for displaying the table entry content. This property becomes unavailable when the File format for generating the report is set to Word Document (RTF) or Rich Text Format.

  • Span end column name: Specifies the name of the column (as defined by the Table Column Specification component) to use as the last (right side) of a set of spanned columns for displaying the table entry. This property becomes unavailable when the File format for generating the report is set to Word Document (RTF) or Rich Text Format.

  • Rows spanned: Specifies the number of rows to span for the table entry. The spanning starts with the table row in which you define the table entry and extends below that row for the number of rows that you specify. This property becomes unavailable when the File format for generating the report is set to Word Document (RTF) or Rich Text Format.

  • Text orientation: Rotates table entry text in 90 degree increments, relative to the page text flow. This property is available only if you select Acrobat PDF or Direct PDF (from template) as the output type file format.

    To use the text orientation of the table row in which this table entry appears, select Auto.

    To override the Text orientation setting for the Table Row component in which this table entry appears, select a rotation value.

  • Rotated text width: Specifies the width of table entry text that you rotate (with the Text orientation property). This property is available only if you select Acrobat PDF or Direct PDF (from template) as the output type file format.

    When you specify this width, you can include the units, for example, 5in. Supported units are inches (in), picas (pi), points (pt), and pixels (px). If you do not specify a unit, the default for template-based output types (for example, Word from template) is pixels. For all other output types, the default is points.

    To avoid truncating the rotated text, set the Rotated text width to a value that allows the display of the longest line of text in the table row.
