public class Table
extends Block

A HTML Table element.

The Table Element works by calling newRow and then adding cells or headings.

Notes
Tables are implemented by nesting a cell Block within a row Block within the table which is also a Block (see nest() on class Composite). Once a row and cell have been created, calling add or attributes on the table actually calls the cell.

             java.lang.String attributes)
Construct Table with attributes.

Method Detail

newRow

public Table newRow()
Create new table row. Attributes set after this call and before a call to newCell or newHeader are considered row attributes.


newRow

public Table newRow(java.lang.String attributes)
Create new table row with attributes. Attributes set after this call and before a call to newCell or newHeader are considered row attributes.


newCell

public Table newCell()

newCell

public Table newCell(java.lang.String attributes)

addCell

public Table addCell(java.lang.Object o)

addCell

public Table addCell(java.lang.Object o,
                     java.lang.String attributes)

newHeading

public Table newHeading()

addHeading

public Table addHeading(java.lang.Object o)

addHeading

public Table addHeading(java.lang.Object o,
                        java.lang.String attributes)

cellSpacing

public Table cellSpacing(int s)
Set the table cell spacing.

Parameters:
s - spacing in pixels
Returns:
This table for call chaining

cellPadding

public Table cellPadding(int padding)
Set the table cell padding.

Parameters:
padding - the cell padding in pixels
Returns:
This table for call chaining

spacing

public Table spacing(int h,
                     int v)
Set horizontal and vertical spacing.

Parameters:
h - horizontal spacing
v - vertical spacing
Returns:
This table for call chaining

row

public Block row()
Get the current row Block element. Use this call for setting row attributes.

Returns:
The Block instance which has been nested in the table as the row

cell

public Block cell()
Get the current cell Block element. Use this call for setting cell attributes.

Returns:
The Block instance which has been nested in the row as the cell

setCellNestingFactory

public static void setCellNestingFactory(CompositeFactory factory)
Deprecated. Use setNestingFactory or setThreadNestingFactory

Add cell nesting factory. Set the CompositeFactory for this thread. Each new cell in the table added by this thread will have a new Composite from this factory nested in the Cell.

Parameters:
factory - The factory for this Thread. If null clear this threads factory.

setThreadNestingFactory

public static void setThreadNestingFactory(CompositeFactory factory)
Add cell nesting factory for thread. Set the CompositeFactory for this thread. Each new cell in the table added by this thread will have a new Composite from this factory nested in the Cell.

Parameters:
factory - The factory for this Thread. If null clear this threads factory.

setNestingFactory

public void setNestingFactory(CompositeFactory factory)
Add cell nesting factory for table. Set the CompositeFactory for this thread. Each new cell in the table added by this thread will have a new Composite from this factory nested in the Cell.

Parameters:
factory - The factory for this Thread. If null clear this threads factory.

defaultRow

public Block defaultRow()
Access the default row template. The Block returned is used as a template for all new rows added to the table. Thus if attributes or content are added to the default row, the these are added to each new row in the table.

Returns:
The default row template

defaultHead

public Block defaultHead()
Access the default header cell template. The Block returned is used as a template for all new header cells added to the table. Thus if attributes or content are added to the default cell, the these are added to each new cell in the table.

Returns:
The default head cell template

defaultCell

public Block defaultCell()
Access the default cell template. The Block returned is used as a template for all new cells added to the table. Thus if attributes or content are added to the default cell, the these are added to each new cell in the table.

Returns:
The default cell template
