mlreportgen.ppt.Border class

Package: mlreportgen.ppt

Border of a table or table entry

Description

Use an mlreportgen.ppt.Border format object to customize the border of a table or table entry in a PPT API presentation.

Note

A conflict occurs if a border segment is shared by two table entries. For a conflicting horizontal border segment, Microsoft® PowerPoint® ignores the formats specified by the entry on the bottom. For a conflicting vertical border segment, PowerPoint ignores the formats specified by the entry on the right.

The mlreportgen.ppt.Border class is a handle class.

Creation

Description

example

mlreportgen.ppt.Border() creates an empty mlreportgen.ppt.Border object. By default, PowerPoint renders table borders as thin, solid, black lines. Use the object properties to specify a different border width, style, or color.

mlreportgen.ppt.Border(style) sets the Style, TopStyle, BottomStyle, LeftStyle, and RightStyle properties to the value of style.

mlreportgen.ppt.Border(style,color) also sets the Color, TopColor, BottomColor, LeftColor, and RightColor properties to the value of color.

mlreportgen.ppt.Border(style,color,width) also sets the Width, TopWidth, BottomWidth, LeftWidth, and RightWidth properties to the value of width.

ID for this PPT API object, specified as a character vector or string scalar. A session-unique ID is generated as part of object creation. You can specify an ID to replace the generated ID.

Tag for this PPT API object, specified as a character vector or string scalar. A session-unique tag is generated as part of the creation of this object. The generated tag has the form CLASS:ID, where CLASS is the object class and ID is the value of the Id property of the object.

Examples

To customize the border or a border segment of a table or table entry in a PPT API presentation, specify the border style, color, and width in an mlreportgen.ppt.Border format object and add the object to the Style property of an mlreportgen.ppt.Table or mlreportgen.ppt.TabeEntry object. This example specifies that the bottom border of the entry in the second row and second column is dashed, red, and has a width of three points.

Create a presentation.

import mlreportgen.ppt.*
ppt = Presentation("myTEBorders.pptx");
open(ppt);

Add a slide to the presentation.

slide = add(ppt,"Title and Table");

Create a table.

t = Table(magic(3));

Create a border object to customize the bottom border segment.

border = Border();
border.BottomStyle = "dash";
border.BottomColor = "red";
border.BottomWidth = "3pt";

Apply the custom border to the entry in the second column and second row.

tr2te2 = t.entry(2,2);
tr2te2.Style = [tr2te2.Style {border}];

Add a title and the table to the slide.

replace(slide,"Title","Table entry with custom borders");
replace(slide,"Table",t);

Close and view the presentation.

close(ppt);
rptview(ppt);

Here is the table in the generated presentation:
