TableStyle Interface

A single style that can be applied to a table.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native

Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v19.1.Core.dll


public interface TableStyle :


The TableStyle object inherits the CharacterPropertiesBase, ParagraphPropertiesBase, TableCellPropertiesBase and the TablePropertiesBase interfaces.

Table styles are contained within the TableStyleCollection accessible via the Document.TableStyles property. To create a new style, use the TableStyleCollection.CreateNew method. Subsequently you should add a style to the document style collection, otherwise you won’t be able to apply it.

To apply a style to a table, use the Table.Style property.

Note that each paragraph in a cell may have its own style.

Default table formatting can be specified via the Document.DefaultTableProperties property.


The following code creates a new table style from scratch, creates a table and applies a new style to a newly created table.

' Create a new table style.
Dim tStyleMain As TableStyle = document.TableStyles.CreateNew()
' Specify style characteristics.
tStyleMain.AllCaps = True
tStyleMain.FontName = "Segoe Condensed"
tStyleMain.FontSize = 14
tStyleMain.Alignment = ParagraphAlignment.Center
tStyleMain.TableBorders.InsideHorizontalBorder.LineStyle = TableBorderLineStyle.Dotted
tStyleMain.TableBorders.InsideVerticalBorder.LineStyle = TableBorderLineStyle.Dotted
tStyleMain.TableBorders.Top.LineThickness = 1.5F
tStyleMain.TableBorders.Top.LineStyle = TableBorderLineStyle.Double
tStyleMain.TableBorders.Left.LineThickness = 1.5F
tStyleMain.TableBorders.Left.LineStyle = TableBorderLineStyle.Double
tStyleMain.TableBorders.Bottom.LineThickness = 1.5F
tStyleMain.TableBorders.Bottom.LineStyle = TableBorderLineStyle.Double
tStyleMain.TableBorders.Right.LineThickness = 1.5F
tStyleMain.TableBorders.Right.LineStyle = TableBorderLineStyle.Double
tStyleMain.CellBackgroundColor = System.Drawing.Color.LightBlue
tStyleMain.TableLayout = TableLayoutType.Fixed
tStyleMain.Name = "MyTableStyle"
'Add the style to the document.
' Create a table.
Dim table As Table = document.Tables.Create(document.Range.Start, 3, 3)
table.TableLayout = TableLayoutType.Fixed
table.PreferredWidthType = WidthType.Fixed
table.PreferredWidth = DevExpress.Office.Utils.Units.InchesToDocumentsF(4.5F)
table(1, 1).PreferredWidthType = WidthType.Fixed
table(1, 1).PreferredWidth = DevExpress.Office.Utils.Units.InchesToDocumentsF(1.5F)
' Apply a previously defined style.
table.Style = tStyleMain

document.InsertText(table(1, 1).Range.Start, "STYLED")
