Merge Cells


Not applicable
Is it possible to merge table cells on a click of a button? If so how?

yup figured it out...have to use colSpan = "1" and then the one your merging it with has to be colSpan = "0";

Now I wonder if you can add a column dynamically so at the start theres click a button and another column comes. Any idea's any body

As for the dynamic columns. I figured it out, but it's not that easy. Please check my example at:

you can see, that you can add rows with one button and column with other. If you look at the hierarchy in designer, you should quickly understand how it works. The only thing now is to properly count the ammount of rows and add them to every additional column. THe other thing to do is to reduce the ammount of columns to appear. If you have some problems with developing this, please let me know at

thats just creating tables side by side....not really adding columns...I've found a better solution at

But this is what I'm really after...I have a table already...with 4 columns...I click on a button on row1 it merges the 3 of the 4 cells together. This button is used to insert tables so I want the user to be prompted with what are the dimensions of the table? Then they can put 3X3. This will then insert a table2 in row1 of table1 so we have nested tables. Is there anyway to get user input to create tables?

Hello there!

Maybe somebody here already write script for: found in selected table (3 colums) 2 empty cells, merge this cells with cell from first column (with text), then apply to merged cell cell style, paragraph style, character style
