SpanFromAbove

SpanFromAbove
is a symbol that can appear at a particular position in a Grid or related construct to indicate that the corresponding position is occupied by a spanning element that appears above it.
  • If SpanFromAbove appears at the same position in several successive rows, it indicates spanning across all these rows.
Make the element 2 span the row below it:
Make it span two rows:

Spanned elements inherit their styles:
Graphics will default to filling the available space:
An explicit ImageSize setting will prevent this behavior:
Spanning regions must be rectangular in shape:
Use SpanFromBoth when spanning across both columns and rows:
