Shape does not expand table

Hi Brave and patient supporters!

Expected that inserted shapes expand tables. But somehow code:

[Test]
public void Shape()
{
var doc = new Document();
var builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

var table = builder.StartTable();

builder.InsertCell();
table.PreferredWidth = PreferredWidth.FromPercent(0);

builder.Writeln("Text 1");
builder.Write("Text 2");

builder.InsertCell();

var arrow = new Shape(doc.Document, ShapeType.Triangle)
{
Filled = true,
Width = 10,
Height = 10,
Rotation = 180,
StrokeColor = Color.Green,
FillColor = Color.Green
};

builder.InsertNode(arrow);

builder.InsertCell();
builder.Write("Text 3");

builder.InsertCell();

arrow = new Shape(doc.Document, ShapeType.Triangle)
{
Filled = true,
Width = 10,
Height = 10,
Rotation = 180,
StrokeColor = Color.Green,
FillColor = Color.Green
};

builder.InsertNode(arrow);

builder.EndRow();
builder.EndTable();

doc.Save(@"C:\\Shape.docx");
}

Comes with different result. It proves that shape size is ignored while creating table. How I create table cell taking shape size in custody? Otherwise table expands if cell text grows. Logically should react to shape in a same way as it is located in the cell. Please some advice here.



Hi Philo,


Thanks for your inquiry. I think, you should make Shape to be inline with text in Cell. Please see the following property and code change:
http://www.aspose.com/docs/display/wordsnet/Shape+WrapType+Property

var arrow = new Shape(doc.Document, ShapeType.Triangle)

{

Filled = true,

Width = 10,

Height = 10,

Rotation = 180,

StrokeColor = Color.Green,

FillColor = Color.Green,

WrapType= WrapType.Inline

};


I hope, this helps.

Best regards,

Thanks, works like charm and as expected.

Have a nice and sunny day!
