Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native

Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v22.2.Core.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.RichEdit.Core


Table Create(
    DocumentPosition pos,
    int rowCount,
    int columnCount


Name Type Description
pos DocumentPosition

A position at which a table is inserted.

rowCount Int32

A number of table rows.

columnCount Int32

A number of table columns.


Type Description

The created table.


Right-to-Left Direction in Tables

The inserted table’s text direction depends on the RightToLeft property value of a paragraph where the table should be inserted. If the paragraph’s RightToLeft property is set to true, the table’s RightToLeft property is automatically set to true. The RightToLeft property of all cell paragraphs is also set to true.

Use the ReadOnlyParagraphCollection.Get(DocumentPosition) method to obtain the paragraph where the DocumentPosition is located.

Successive Tables

When you call the Create method to insert a new table right before of after the existing table, these tables are merged, and the Create method returns the resulting table. Successive tables with different directions are not merged.

Set the RichEditControlCompatibility.MergeSuccessiveTables property to false to keep successive tables with the same direction separate.


The code sample below creates a table with three columns and four rows:


using DevExpress.XtraRichEdit;
using DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native;

using (var wordProcessor = new RichEditDocumentServer())
    Document document = wordProcessor.Document;

    // Create a new table
    Table table = document.Tables.Create(document.Range.End, 2, 2);

    // Add new rows to the table

    // Add a new column to the table
