Synopsis

Functions

Detailed Description

A table is a group of cells ordered into rows and columns. Each table contains at least one row and one column. Each cell contains a block. Tables in rich text documents are formatted using the properties defined in this class.

Tables are horizontally justified within their parent frame according to the table’s alignment. This can be read with the alignment() function and set with setAlignment() .

Cells within the table are separated by cell spacing. The number of pixels between cells is set with setCellSpacing() and read with cellSpacing() . The contents of each cell is surrounded by cell padding. The number of pixels between each cell edge and its contents is set with setCellPadding() and read with cellPadding() .

The table’s background color can be read with the background() function, and can be specified with setBackground() . The background color of each cell can be set independently, and will control the color of the cell within the padded area.

The table format also provides a way to constrain the widths of the columns in the table. Columns can be assigned a fixed width, a variable width, or a percentage of the available width (see QTextLength ). The columns() function returns the number of columns with constraints, and the columnWidthConstraints() function returns the constraints defined for the table. These quantities can also be set by calling setColumnWidthConstraints() with a vector containing new constraints. If no constraints are required, clearColumnWidthConstraints() can be used to remove them.

Return type

Alignment

Returns the table’s alignment.

PySide2.QtGui.QTextTableFormat.clearColumnWidthConstraints()

Clears the column width constraints for the table.

PySide2.QtGui.QTextTableFormat.columnWidthConstraints()
Return type

Returns a list of constraints used by this table format to control the appearance of columns in a table.

PySide2.QtGui.QTextTableFormat.columns()
Return type

int

Returns the number of columns specified by the table format.

PySide2.QtGui.QTextTableFormat.headerRowCount()
Return type

int

Returns the number of rows in the table that define the header.

Parameters

alignmentAlignment

Sets the table’s alignment .

columns()

PySide2.QtGui.QTextTableFormat.setHeaderRowCount(count)
Parameters

countint

Declares the first count rows of the table as table header. The table header rows get repeated when a table is broken across a page boundary.
