Adding Header Row to Variable Table


Recommended Posts

Hello all:


I was wondering if you can provide me with some assistance.


I have a table that contains a variable amount of rows based on the number of dependents each record contains.


I have found this logic from a previous thread and it works great:


var fields = [[Rule("Dep1_Rule"),Field("dep1dob"),Field("dep1rel")],[Field("dep2fname") + " " + Field("dep2lname"), Field("dep2dob"), Field("dep2rel")],[Field("dep3fname") + " " + Field("dep3lname"),Field("dep3dob"), Field("dep3rel")],

[Field("dep4lfname") + " " + Field("dep4lname"),Field("dep4dob"), Field("dep4rel")],[Field("dep5fname") + " " + Field("dep5lname"),Field("dep5dob"), Field("dep5rel")],[Field("dep6fname") + " " + Field("dep6lname"),Field("dep6dob"), Field("dep6rel")]];


var myTable = new FPTable;

myTable.AddColumns(14400, 6100, 8500);



for (var i=0; i<6; i++) {

if (fields[2] != "") {


myTable.Rows.Cells[0].PointSize = 10;



myTable.Rows.Cells[0].HAlign = "Left";

myTable.Rows.SetContents(fields[0], fields[1], fields[2]);



return myTable.MakeTags();


The problem I'm having is that I need to be able to add a header row (3 Columns) that contain "Name", "Birth Date", "Relationship".


I've tried a couple of things but nothing seems to work. I'm pretty new to making tables so any assistance you can provide would be appreciated.

Maybe try something like this:


    var headerRow = myTable.AddRow();
   myTable.Rows[0].Cells[0].Font = "Arial";
   myTable.Rows[0].Cells[0].PointSize = 10;
   myTable.Rows[0].Cells[0].HAlign = "Center";
   myTable.Rows[0].Cells[0].Margins = new FPTableMargins;
   myTable.Rows[0].Cells[0].Margins.Top = 10;
   myTable.Rows[0].Cells[0].Margins.Bottom = 10;
   myTable.Rows[0].Cells[0].Content = "Name";
   myTable.Rows[0].Cells[1].Content = "Birth Date";
   myTable.Rows[0].Cells[2].Content = "Relationship";


This is obviously from a table I have so if you don't need the font and border tags you could remove those.
