Can not set font size on an empty cell

Hi,


I am using following extension method in order to set font size in table cell:
        public static void SetCellFontSize(this Cell cell, double fontSize)
{
var runs = cell.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Run, true);
        <span style="color:blue;">foreach</span> (<span style="color:#2b91af;">Run</span> run <span style="color:blue;">in</span> runs)
        {
            run.Font.Size = fontSize;
        }
    }</pre></div><div>I am using this method when populating existing table in Word document like this:</div><div><pre style="font-family: Consolas; font-size: 13px; background: white;"><span style="color:blue;">        private</span> <span style="color:#2b91af;">Table</span> PopulateCoursesSummary(<span style="color:#2b91af;">StudentTranscript</span> data, <span style="color:#2b91af;">Document</span> wordDocument)
    {
        <span style="color:green;">//Courses summary</span>
        <span style="color:blue;">var</span> coursesSummaryTable = (<span style="color:#2b91af;">Table</span>)wordDocument.GetChild(<span style="color:#2b91af;">NodeType</span>.Table, 1, <span style="color:blue;">true</span>);
        coursesSummaryTable.Alignment = <span style="color:#2b91af;">TableAlignment</span>.Left;

        <span style="color:blue;">foreach</span> (<span style="color:blue;">var</span> course <span style="color:blue;">in</span> data.Courses)
        {
            <span style="color:blue;">var</span> clonedRow = (<span style="color:#2b91af;">Row</span>)coursesSummaryTable.Rows[coursesSummaryTable.Rows.Count - 2].Clone(<span style="color:blue;">true</span>);

            <span style="color:green;">//Empty cloned row</span>
            <span style="color:blue;">foreach</span> (<span style="color:#2b91af;">Cell</span> cell <span style="color:blue;">in</span> clonedRow.Cells)
            {
                cell.RemoveAllChildren();
                cell.EnsureMinimum();
            }

            <span style="color:green;">//populate cloned row with data</span>
            clonedRow.Cells[0].FirstParagraph.Runs.Add(<span style="color:blue;">new</span> <span style="color:#2b91af;">Run</span>(wordDocument, course.Name));
            clonedRow.Cells[1].FirstParagraph.Runs.Add(<span style="color:blue;">new</span> <span style="color:#2b91af;">Run</span>(wordDocument, course.Status));
            clonedRow.Cells[2].FirstParagraph.Runs.Add(<span style="color:blue;">new</span> <span style="color:#2b91af;">Run</span>(wordDocument, course.Date));

            <span style="color:green;">//Change font in cloned row</span>
            <span style="color:blue;">foreach</span> (<span style="color:#2b91af;">Cell</span> cell <span style="color:blue;">in</span> clonedRow.Cells)
            {
                cell.SetCellFontSize(8);
            }

            <span style="color:green;">//insert cloned row as last row in table</span>
            coursesSummaryTable.Rows.Insert(-1, clonedRow);
        }
        <span style="color:blue;">return</span> coursesSummaryTable;
    }</pre></div><div>This works as expected when data added to cell is not an empty string. If, e.g course.Date==String.Empty, then cell font size will be 11 (not 8) by default. Why? </div><div><br></div><div>Please let me know if I can change this to suit my needs.</div><div><br></div><div>Cheers</div><div><br></div><div>P.S. I know that I can work around this - add some dummy text to that cell and make it white to be invisible, but I would like not to have things like this in my code :)</div>

Hi Kee,


Thanks for your inquiry. A minimal valid cell needs to have at least one Paragraph. For such empty cells you can get the desired output by specifying size to paragraph break character as follows:

tab.FirstRow.FirstCell.FirstParagraph.ParagraphBreakFont.Size
= 8;

I hope, this helps.

Best regards,

Hi Awais,


This is exactly what I need.

Thank you very much.

Cheers
