Question how to center (or align right) table in textframe? (also QR-question)


For a customer I have to create a business card with a QR-code with a logo in it. The background color of the business card itself is 20% green, but the QR-code which is 100% green must have a white background.

My proposed solution was creating a table with background color white, where the table width is measured by content (found this solution here: This works fine.

If I could position this table exact in the middle of my text frame, I could place a graphic frame in the same dimensions exact above it. In this graphic frame I would place the logo exact in the middle. Result should be a QR-code with white background and the company logo in the middle.

Somehow I don't manage to align the table into the textframe.

This is my code:

var Text = Rule("getQRcode2"); 
var PointSize = 7; 
var Font = "Helvetica";
var Color = "white";

var tm = new FusionProTextMeasure;
tm.pointSize = PointSize * 100;
tm.font = Font;

var myTable = new FPTable;
myTable.AddColumns(tm.textWidth + 100);
var theCell = myTable.AddRow().Cells[0];
theCell.PointSize = PointSize;
theCell.Font = Font;
theCell.ShadeColor = Color;
theCell.ShadePct = 100;
theCell.Content = Text;
theCell.Margins = { Top: 0, Bottom: -68, Left: 0, Right: 0 };

var X=myTable.MakeTags();
X += "<p leading=1> ";
return X;
Next step would be aligning the table rght-top, but with logo still in the middle of the QR-code.

Anybody a clue how to realize this? Thanks!
