DetailsDetails

  • The following options may be specified for a table or matrix created using the Create Table/Matrix dialog box:
  • "Columns"3the number of columns
    "DiagonalFill"Falsewhether a piece of text is automatically inserted into each diagonal element of a newly created grid box
    "DiagonalFillText""1"a string to be automatically entered into each diagonal element of a grid box
    "DrawColumnLines"Falsewhether lines are drawn between adjacent columns
    "DrawFrame"Falsewhether a frame is drawn
    "DrawRowLines"Falsewhether lines are drawn between adjacent rows
    "Fill"Falsewhether a piece of text is automatically inserted into each element of a grid box
    "FillText""0"a string to be automatically inserted into each element of a grid box
    "Rows"3the number of rows
    "Type""PlainGridBox"whether a grid box created is a table, matrix, or palette
  • The Create Table/Matrix dialog box is accessed from the Insert ► Table/Matrix ► New menu item.
  • is typically set using the Number of rows: text field in the dialog box.
  • can be set to any integer value greater than or equal to zero.
  • With the default setting , any newly created table, matrix, or palette has three rows.
  • is typically set using the Number of columns: text field in the dialog box.
  • can be set to any integer value greater than or equal to zero.
  • With the default setting , any newly created table, matrix, or palette has three columns.
  • is typically set using the Draw lines between rows checkbox in the dialog box.
  • With the setting "DrawRowLines"->True, a line is drawn between any two adjacent rows of the grid box.
  • With the default setting "DrawRowLines"->False, no lines are drawn between rows.
  • only controls the display of lines indirectly, by specifying if a newly created grid box includes separate options for drawing lines. It is the that directly control whether or not lines are drawn.
  • is typically set using the Draw lines between columns checkbox in the Create Table/Matrix dialog box.
  • With the setting "DrawColumnLines"->True, a line is drawn between any two adjacent columns of the grid box.
  • With the default setting "DrawColumnLines"->False, no lines are drawn between columns.
  • only controls the display of lines indirectly, by specifying if a newly created grid box includes separate options for drawing lines. It is the that directly controls whether or not lines are drawn.
  • is typically set using the Draw frame checkbox in the Create Table/Matrix dialog box.
  • With the setting "DrawFrame"->True, the grid box is enclosed by a frame.
  • With the default setting "DrawFrame"->False, the grid box is drawn without a frame.
  • only controls the display of a frame indirectly, by specifying if a newly created grid box includes a separate option for drawing a frame.
  • The three possible settings for are Table, , and . A table is a simple rectangular grid of elements; a matrix is a table that is enclosed in parentheses; and a palette is a rectangular array of buttons.
  • The value of is typically set by clicking the appropriate radio button in the Create Table/Matrix dialog box.
  • With the setting "Fill"->True, the chosen text is automatically entered into the grid box.
  • The text to be entered must be specified using the related option . It can be any string.
  • With the setting "Fill"->False, a blank placeholder () is entered into each element of the grid box.
  • With the setting "DiagonalFill"->True, the chosen text is automatically entered into the grid box.
  • The text to be entered is specified using the related option . It can be any string.
  • With the setting "Fill"->False, a blank placeholder () is entered into each diagonal element of the grid box.
  • is typically set by entering a string in the Fill with: text field in the Create Table/Matrix dialog box.
  • Its value can be any string. The default setting is .
  • is typically set by entering a string in the Fill diagonal: text field of the Create Table/Matrix dialog box.
  • The default setting is .
