XRTableCell Class

A single Cell in an XRTable‘s Row.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraReports.UI

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraReports.v19.1.dll

Declaration

[DefaultBindableProperty("Text")]
public class XRTableCell :
    XRLabel,
    IBrickOwner,
    IWeighty

The following members accept/return XRTableCell objects:

Remarks

Use XRTableCell objects to place text or other controls in a table. A table cell behaves like an ordinary label control and displays text from its Text property. If an XRTableCell object contains other controls, it cannot display text.

You can use the cell’s Controls property to access the control collection, and the cell’s Row property to access its row.

NOTE

When you create large tables in code, set the XRTableCell.Weight property to 1 for all table cells - to improve report generator performance.

Use markup in table cells to change the text’s appearance. The markup works when the AllowMarkupText property is set to true. Refer to AllowMarkupText for more information.

Markup Text

Use markup in table cells to change the text appearance. This behavior is in effect when the AllowMarkupText property is set to true. Refer to AllowMarkupText for more information.

Examples

The code sample below illustrates how to create an XRTable at runtime.

using DevExpress.XtraReports.UI;
// ...
private static SqlDataSource CreateSQLDataSource() {
    // Create a data source with the connection parameters.  
    Access97ConnectionParameters connectionParameters = new Access97ConnectionParameters("Data/nwind.mdb", "", "");
    SqlDataSource dataSource = new SqlDataSource(connectionParameters);

    // Create a SELECT query.
    SelectQuery query = SelectQueryFluentBuilder
        .AddTable("Products")
        .SelectColumn("ProductName")
        .SelectColumn("UnitPrice")
        .Build("selectQuery");

    // Add the query to the collection and return the data source. 
    dataSource.Queries.Add(query);
    dataSource.Fill();
    return dataSource;
}
// ...
// Create a new data source.
SqlDataSource sqlDataSource = CreateSQLDataSource();

// Create a new report and assign a data source to it.
XtraReport report = new XtraReport();
report.DataSource = ds;
report.DataMember = "queryProducts";

// Create a detail band and add it to the report.
DetailBand detailBand = new DetailBand();
report.Bands.Add(detailBand);

// Create a table and add it to the detail band.
XRTable table = new XRTable();
detailBand.Controls.Add(table);

// Create a row with the product name and product price cells.
XRTableRow row = new XRTableRow();
table.Rows.Add(row);
XRTableCell productName = new XRTableCell();
XRTableCell productPrice = new XRTableCell();
row.Cells.Add(productName);
row.Cells.Add(productPrice);

// Bind table cells to data fields.
productName.ExpressionBindings.Add(new ExpressionBinding("BeforePrint", "Text", "[ProductName]"));
productPrice.ExpressionBindings.Add(new ExpressionBinding("BeforePrint", "Text", "[UnitPrice]"));
