Default alignment in table cells

Is there a way to change the alignment on individual table cells so some can be aligned left and some can be centered?

Default Re: alignment in table cells

Sure, just prepend a <p> tag to the cell contents and set the "quad" attribute, for instance: <p quad=C> for center aligned.
If you want to adjust the alignment without starting a new paragraph, you can use set the "br" attribute to false as well: <p br=false quad=R> (where "R" denotes right-aligned).

Left alignment is the default for all paragraphs. See the Tags Reference Guide for more information on the<p> tag.

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.

I have a problem similar to this query and I tried your suggestion.

If I prepend a <p> tag to the cell contents and set the "quad" attribute, the alignment gets changed for all following data. How do I restrict it only for that cell

OR

I would like to have right alignment of text only for column 4 out of 5 columns.

Please let me know.

For the cells you want right-aligned, prepend this tag: <p br=false quad=R>. Then, you'll need to reset the alignment for following cells by prepending this tag: <p br=false quad=L>. It may be best to get in the habit of specifying the alignment for all of your table cells.

If you're using the FPTable API (as in the Frodo Travel tutorial), then you can use the .HAlign property of the cell object.

Hello Dan:

Many thanks for your guidance. On prepending the appropriate <p> tags to the cell contents, I got the alignment of columns as required.

Regards.

Milind Vaze.
