Chapter 8. Laying Out and Formatting Web... > Changing Table Properties

Changing Table Properties

Once you create a table and enter information, you can modify a variety of elements in the table, including alignment, cell spacing, cell padding (the space around the cell contents), height and width, border size, and color. You can change all of these properties in the Table Properties dialog box.

Change Table Properties

Click the View menu, click Page, and then open the Web page you want to use.

Right-click the table, and then click Table Properties.

You can set the table's layout modifying the following parameters or accepting the default settings.

  • Alignment. Set the position for the table on the page (left, right, center).

  • Float. Indicate whether you want text surrounding the table to flow around the left or right side of the table. If you do not want text to flow around the table at all, select Default.

  • Cell Padding. Change the space between a cell border and its content by entering a number in the box.

  • Cell Spacing. Change the space between the table cells by entering a number in the box.

  • Specify Width. Set the width of the columns in pixels or percentage of the available screen space.

  • Specify Height. Set the height of the columns in pixels or percentage of the available screen space.

You can set the table's borders modifying the following parameters or accepting the default settings.

  • Size. Enter the width of your table border in pixels. If you don't want a border, enter 0 (zero).

  • Color. Select one color for the table border from the dialog box's list color menu.

  • Light Border and Dark Border. Set a two-color border for a three-dimensional effect, and then select colors from the lists.

To select a color for the table background, in the Background area, click the Color list arrow, and then select a color from the Color palette.

Click OK.
