Simple Table

Tables are used to organize document content in rows and columns. In GemBox.Document, table related types are contained in a separate GemBox.Document.Tables namespace.

Following example demonstrates how to create and populate a simple table by constructing all table related elements – table, table rows and table cells.

        int tableColumnCount = 5;

        Table table = new Table(document);
        table.TableFormat.PreferredWidth = new TableWidth(100, TableWidthUnit.Percentage);

        for (int i = 0; i < tableRowCount; i++)
            TableRow row = new TableRow(document);

            for (int j = 0; j < tableColumnCount; j++)
                Paragraph para = new Paragraph(document, string.Format("Cell {0}-{1}", i + 1, j + 1));

                row.Cells.Add(new TableCell(document, para));

        document.Sections.Add(new Section(document, table));
