Table.TableBackgroundColor Property

Gets or sets the color of an empty space between cells.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native

Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v20.2.Core.dll


Color TableBackgroundColor { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A Color that is the color of the background.


By default, there is no empty space between cells. To specify a distance between cells, use the Table.TableCellSpacing property. The TableBackgroundColor is applied to an area around the cells with the width equal to double the Table.TableCellSpacing property value.

To change the cell background, use the TableCell.BackgroundColor property.


The semi-transparent alpha component (i.e. the Color's alpha parameter set to value less than 255) is reset to opaque (255) during export to Word-like formats.


Document document = server.Document;
// Create a table.
Table table = document.Tables.Create(document.Range.Start, 3, 5, AutoFitBehaviorType.AutoFitToWindow);
// Provide the space between table cells.
// The distance between cells will be 4 mm.
document.Unit = DevExpress.Office.DocumentUnit.Millimeter;
table.TableCellSpacing = 2;
// Change the color of empty space between cells.
table.TableBackgroundColor = Color.Violet;
//Change cell background color.
table.ForEachCell(new TableCellProcessorDelegate(TableHelper.ChangeCellColor));
table.ForEachCell(new TableCellProcessorDelegate(TableHelper.ChangeCellBorderColor));
