mlreportgen.ppt.TableEntry class

Package: mlreportgen.ppt


Table entry to include in a table row.

To add content to a table entry, append a character vector or one or more mlreportgen.ppt.Paragraph objects.

The row with the largest number of table entries determines the number of columns in the table if there are more table entries in the row than the number of rows specified in the mlreportgen.ppt.Table object constructor.


tableEntryObj = TableEntry() creates an empty table entry object.

Default formatting for text appended to table entry, specified as an array of PPT style objects. You can include these mlreportgen.ppt style objects in the cell array:

  • BackgroundColor object

  • FontFamily object

  • FontSize object

  • Bold object

  • FontColor object

  • Italic object

  • Underline object

This read-only property lists child elements that the object contains, specified as a cell array.

This read-only property lists the parent of this object, specified as a PPT object.

ID for PPT API object, specified as a character vector. 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. 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.

An example of a reason for specifying your own tag value is to make it easier to identify where an issue occurred during presentation generation.

Create a presentation.

import mlreportgen.ppt.*

table1 = Table(3);

Create the first table row.

tr1 = TableRow();
tr1.Style = {Bold(true)};

Create three table entries for the first row.

te1tr1 = TableEntry();
p = Paragraph('first entry');
p.FontColor = 'red';

te2tr1 = TableEntry();
append(te2tr1,'second entry');

te3tr1 = TableEntry();
te3tr1.Style = {FontColor('green')};
append(te3tr1,'third entry');

Append the table entries to the first row.


Create the second table row.

tr2 = TableRow();

Create three table entries for the second row.

te1tr2 = TableEntry();
te1tr2.Style = {FontColor('red')};
p = Paragraph('first entry');

te2tr2 = TableEntry();
append(te2tr2,'second entry');

te3tr2 = TableEntry();
te3tr2.Style = {FontColor('green')};
append(te3tr2,'third entry');

Append the table entries to the second row.

Use the mlreportgen.ppt.Slide.find method to find objects in the slide with the Name property set to Table. In the default PPT API template, the Title and Table layout slide has an object with the name Table.

contents = find(slide1,'Table');

Replace the table placeholder with table1.
