Height of this table row, specified as a character vector or string scalar that consists of a number followed by an abbreviation for a unit of measurement. For example, '0.5in' specifies one-half inch. Valid abbreviations are:

  • px — pixels (default)

  • cm — centimeters

  • in — inches

  • mm — millimeters

  • pc — picas

  • pt — points

If the Style property of this table row includes an mlreportgen.dom.RowHeight format object, the Height property is set to the height specified by the format object.

If you set the Height property to a height value, a RowHeight object with the specified height is created and added to the Style property of the row, or is used to replace an existing RowHeight object in the Style property. The Type of the new RowHeight object is 'exact'. This Type value causes Microsoft® Word to generate a row of the specified height and truncate content that does not fit. HTML and PDF viewers create a row of at least the specified height and adjust the row height to accommodate the content.

Note

If you add an mlreportgen.dom.Height object to the Style property, it is converted to an mlreportgen.dom.RowHeight object with the Type set to 'atleast'. This Type value causes HTML and PDF viewers and Microsoft Word to create a row of at least the specified height and adjust the row height to accommodate the content.

Example: '0.5in'

Table entries in this row, specified as an array of mlreportgen.dom.TableEntry objects. Use this property to access the table entries in this row. For example, this code accesses element 2 in row 2:

t = Table({'e11', 'e12'; 'e21', 'e22'});
elem22 = t.row(2).Entries(2);

You can also access element 2 in row 2 by using the entry method of the mlreportgen.dom.Table class. For example:

t = Table({'e11', 'e12'; 'e21', 'e22'});
elem22 = entry(t,2,2);

Once you access the TableEntry object that corresponds to a table entry, you can format the entry by setting properties of the object. See Format a Table Entry.

This property is read-only.

Number of table entries in this row, specified as an integer. This property is read-only.

Name of the style for formatting this table row, specified as a character vector or string scalar.

The style specified by the StyleName property must be defined in the stylesheet of the document or document part to which this table row is appended. The specified style defines the appearance of the table row in the output document, except for formats that are specified by the Style property of this table row. The format objects specified by the Style property override the formats defined in the style.

The StyleName property is ignored for Word output.

Formats that define the style of this table row, specified as a cell array of DOM format objects. The formats override the corresponding formats defined by the stylesheet style specified by the StyleName property.

You can specify the row height by adding an mlreportgen.dom.RowHeight or an mlreportgen.dom.Height object to the Style property. An mlreportgen.dom.Height object is converted to an mlreportgen.dom.RowHeight object with the type set to 'atleast'.

Custom attributes of this document element, specified as an array of mlreportgen.dom.CustomAttribute objects. The custom attributes must be supported by the output format.

Parent of this document element, specified as a DOM object. This property is read-only.

Children of this document element, specified as an array of DOM objects. This property is read-only.

Tag for this document element, specified as a character vector.

The DOM generates a session-unique tag when it creates the document element. Structure the tag as class:id, where class is the class of the element and id is the value of the Id property. You can specify a tag to replace the generated tag. Specifying your own tag can make it easier to identify where an issue occurred during document generation.

ID for this document element, specified as a character vector or string scalar. The DOM generates a session-unique ID when it creates the document element. You can specify your own ID.

To add content to an empty table, append table entries to table rows and then append the table rows to the table. This example creates this two-by-two table:

Create a document and then create a table that has two columns.

import mlreportgen.dom.*

d = Document();
t = Table(2);

Create two table rows.

tr1 = TableRow();
tr2 = TableRow();

Create table entries that contain the content and append the table entries to the rows.

append(tr1,TableEntry('e11'));
append(tr1,TableEntry('e12'));
append(tr2,TableEntry('e21'));
append(tr2,TableEntry('e22'));

Append the table rows to the table.

append(t,tr1);
append(t,tr2);

Append the table to the document. Close and view the document.

append(d,t);
close(d);
rptview(d);

Use the Entries property of an mlreportgen.dom.TableRow object to access the mlreportgen.dom.TableEntry object that corresponds to the entry that you want to format. Format the entry by setting format properties of the TableEntry object or by adding format objects to the Style property of the object. This example changes the text color of the second entry of the second row to red.

import mlreportgen.dom.*
d = Document();
t = Table({'e11','e12';'e21','e22'});
t.row(2).Entries(2).Style = {Color('red')};
append(d,t);
close(d);
rptview(d);
    

In the resulting table, the text, e22, in the second entry of the second row is red.

Alternatively, you can access a table entry by using the entry method of the mlreportgen.dom.Table object that contains the entry. In the previous example, replace:

t.row(2).Entries(2).Style = {Color('red')};

with:

elem = entry(t,2,2);
elem.Style = {Color('red')};
