The file parser can add tables to text output by using the SOBeginTable
functions to mark the start and end of the table definition and can format
the rows and cells in tables by using the SOPutTableRowFormat
functions. The file parser uses the character and paragraph functions to
output the text for each cell and set the attributes.
The file parser marks the end of each cell and each row by using the SOPutBreak
function with the SO_TABLECELLBREAK and SO_TABLEROWBREAK values. A file
parser must insert a cell break after each cell and a row break at the end of each
row. If a file parser inserts a row break before inserting as many cells as were
defined for the row, the remaining cells are assumed to be empty. Empty cells
may be inserted in the middle of a row by inserting consecutive cell breaks.
Row and cell formats must be defined before the last cell of a row. After
defining the row properties by using the SOPutTableRowFormat
function, the parser must call the SOPutTableCellInfo
function for each cell in the row. After a row is defined, the row properties
are assumed to apply to subsequent rows until new row properties are
specified. A filter may, thus, define an entire table by specifying the row and cell
properties once and then using the appropriate row and cell breaks.
You can add borders to cells by setting the pLeftBorder
, and pBottomBorder
members of the SOTABLECELLINFO
structure to appropriate values when setting the cell format.
You can add tabs to cells by using the special character, the SO_CHCELLTAB value. This character is defined for cells that are merged with their
neighbors and acts as a tab that moves the current text position to the location of
the next boundary that would have existed if the cells had not been merged.
