I'm looking at using a UI Table to store numbers up to 5 characters in length. But I'm having problems getting the actual numbers centered within the tables columns. I created a small test case consisteing of the following code;
clear all;
close all;
clc;
data = {'123'; '1234'; '12345'};
f = figure('Position',[200 200 400 150]);
cnames = 'Part Numbers';
rnames = {'First','Second','Third'};
Table = uitable('Parent',f,'Data',data,'ColumnName',cnames,...
'RowName',rnames,'Position',[20 20 360 100],...
'fontname','courier');
In reviewing the documentation for UI Table, it appears there is no way to control the way the characters are placed in the table. They are either left or right justified based on them being characters or numbers.
Is there a way to possibly center the numbers outside of UITable?
