Default Help with table formatting

I am working on a table and am new to formatting and alignment etc. What I would like to do is format my date (MM/dd/yyyy), amounts (add $) and keep the first 2 column left aligned but right align the last 3 columns. Any help would be appreciated!

var table = new FPTable();

var data = FusionPro.GetMultiLineRecords();

for (var rec = 1; rec <= data.recordCount; rec++) {
function ExField(str) { return '<p br=false linespacing=0.8>' + TaggedTextFromRaw(data.GetFieldValue(rec, str)); }

var content = ["Trx_Date_From","Description","ApprovedAmt", "Payments","Balance"].map(ExField);
var row = table.AddRow();
var [cell] = row.Cells;

cell.Margins = { 'Top': 1, 'Bottom': 1, 'Left': 0, 'Right': 0 };
cell.VAlign = 'Bottom';

row.CopyCells(0, 1, 2, 3, 4);
row.minHeight = 15 * 100; // 15 pt row height.
row.SetContents.apply(row, content);

return table.MakeTags();

Default Re: Help with table formatting

First, if you're using FusionPro 11.1, then you can make this table, formatting and all, without writing a single line of JavaScript.

In older versions, you can just break out that call to row.SetContents() with multiple parameters, just like in this post:

In your case, I don't have your data, so I can't validate the code, but I think you want to do this:
    FormatDate(ExField("Trx_Date_From"), "MM/dd/yyyy"),
    "$" + ExField("ApprovedAmt"),
    "$" + ExField("Payments"),
    "$" + ExField("Balance")

How To Ask Questions The Smart Way

The correct spellings are JavaScript, FusionPro, and MarcomCentral (each with two capital letters and no spaces). Acceptable abbreviations are JS, FP, and MC (or MCC). There is no "S" at the end of "Expression" or "Printable"! The name of the product is FusionPro, not "Fusion". "Java" is not is not the same as JavaScript.

Check out the JavaScript Guide and JavaScript Reference! FusionPro 8.0 and newer use JavaScript 1.7. Older versions use JavaScript 1.5.

return "KbwbTdsjqu!spdlt\"".replace(/./g,function(w){return String.fromCharCode(w.charCodeAt()-1)});
