RowBanding for custom TableStyle

Hi,

I’m looking for a way to apply custom styles to odd and even rows in a table. I’ve tried using ConditionalStyles.EvenRowBanding and ConditionalStyles.OddRowBanding in the attached example, but it seems that the resulting table doesn’t use the styles specified - could you please advise me on how I can get these styles to apply?

Thanks,
Tomek

Hi @acturisaspose
I appreciate your interest in Aspose products.

I prepared some simple code that will help you achieve what you need.

private void Logic(Document doc)
{
    DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
    Table table = builder.StartTable();

    builder.InsertCell();
    builder.Writeln("Item");
    builder.InsertCell();
    builder.Writeln("Quantity (kg)");
    builder.EndRow();

    builder.InsertCell();
    builder.Writeln("Apples");
    builder.InsertCell();
    builder.Writeln("20");
    builder.EndRow();

    builder.InsertCell();
    builder.Writeln("Bananas");
    builder.InsertCell();
    builder.Writeln("40");
    builder.EndRow();

    builder.InsertCell();
    builder.Writeln("Carrots");
    builder.InsertCell();
    builder.Writeln("50");
    builder.EndRow();            

    table.AutoFit(AutoFitBehavior.AutoFitToContents);

    var rowList = table.Rows.Cast<Row>().ToList();

    bool odd = true;
    foreach (var row in rowList)
    {
        odd = !odd;
        foreach (Cell cell in row.ChildNodes)
        {
            if (odd)
            {
                cell.CellFormat.Shading.BackgroundPatternColor = Color.Aqua;
                cell.CellFormat.Shading.Texture = TextureIndex.TextureSolid;
                cell.CellFormat.Borders.LineStyle = LineStyle.DotDash;
            }
            else
            {
                cell.CellFormat.Shading.BackgroundPatternColor = Color.Magenta;
                cell.CellFormat.Borders.LineStyle = LineStyle.DoubleWave;
            }

            foreach (Run run in cell.GetChildNodes(NodeType.Run, true))
            {
                Aspose.Words.Font font = run.Font;
                if (odd)
                {
                    // Set some font formatting properties                            
                    font.Bold = true;
                    font.Color = System.Drawing.Color.Red;
                    font.Name = "Verdana";
                }
                else
                {
                    font.Bold = false;
                    font.Color = System.Drawing.Color.Blue;
                    font.Name = "Calibri";
                }
            }
        }
    }
}

I exaggerated the styles just for the sake of viewing them. I attached the result of running the code sample.

Please let me know if you would like to know something else.
Best regards.

@acturisaspose Your code is correct, but you should also specify TableStyle.RowStripe value. For example see the following simple code:

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

Table table = builder.StartTable();
builder.InsertCell();
builder.Write("Name");
builder.InsertCell();
builder.Write("Value");
builder.EndRow();
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
{
    builder.InsertCell();
    builder.InsertCell();
    builder.EndRow();
}
builder.EndTable();

TableStyle tableStyle = (TableStyle)doc.Styles.Add(StyleType.Table, "MyTableStyle1");
// Define background color to the first row of table.
tableStyle.ConditionalStyles.FirstRow.Shading.BackgroundPatternColor = Color.GreenYellow;
tableStyle.ConditionalStyles.FirstRow.Shading.Texture = TextureIndex.TextureNone;
tableStyle.ConditionalStyles.OddRowBanding.Shading.BackgroundPatternColor = Color.Gray;
tableStyle.ConditionalStyles.OddRowBanding.Shading.Texture = TextureIndex.TextureNone;
tableStyle.ConditionalStyles.EvenRowBanding.Shading.BackgroundPatternColor = Color.White;
tableStyle.ConditionalStyles.EvenRowBanding.Shading.Texture = TextureIndex.TextureNone;
tableStyle.RowStripe = 1;

table.Style = tableStyle;

doc.Save(@"C:\Temp\out.docx");
