    Setting Table Styles
    In This Topic

    You can add custom or built-in styles to a table.

    Table with a default and custom styles

    You can specify custom styles for the first, second, or last column as well as other areas of the table. For a complete list, see the TableStyle properties. You can specify a built-in style with the TableStyle fields.

    Table styles have a priority order when the styles overlap. The priority from highest to lowest is cell, row, column, and table.

    Some style properties apply to areas that are not visible or do not have a style setting by default. For example, the FirstRowStripe style is not displayed unless the BandedRows property is true. The following table lists the TableView setting that must be true before the associated table style is displayed in the table.

    TableView property TableStyle property
    BandedColumns FirstColumnStripe, FirstColumnStripSize, SecondColumnStripe, SecondColumnStripSize
    BandedRows FirstRowStripe, FirstRowStripSize, SecondRowStripe, SecondRowStripSize
    FirstColumn FirstColumn
    HeaderRowVisible HeaderRow
    LastColumn LastColumn

    Using Code

    1. Create a style using TableBorder and TableElementStyle.
    2. Use the TableStyle constructor and the CreateTableStyle method to assign the style.
    3. Set the TableStyle FirstColumn property to assign the style to the column or set any of the TableStyle properties.
    4. Set the TableView FirstColumn property to True to display the column style or set the appropriate TableView property.


    This example code adds a custom style to the first column.
