Set Shading Fill & Patterns for Table in Word Document (C# .NET) | Table Background Fill


I’m struggling to apply expected formatting to my table, using Aspose.Words 21.5.0. Could you please advise?

I’m using the following code:

var doc = new Aspose.Words.Document();
var builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);
var table = builder.StartTable();
table.CellSpacing = 8;
table.SetShading(TextureIndex.TextureNone, Color.Red, Color.Red);

In the resulting document (Output.docx) the colour is applied only to the cells and not to the space between them.
In MS Word, when I set shading, both the cells and the space between them get the colour (Expected.docx).
Is there any way to mimic Word’s behaviour?
