Data Table Appearance

If you need to change a visual style of the table, go to Settings of Data Tables Generator by Supsystic and find Appearance Tab.

Customize the Table appearance of the table using the next options:

  • Auto Table Width – if checked – width of table columns will be calculated automatically for table width 100%Otherwise – you can set table width manually: columns width will get from Fixed Table Width option (toolbar on Editor tab) or calculated depending on the width of the column in the table editor.If you do not want to apply columns width at all – you should uncheck “Auto Table Width” option, set “Fixed Table Width” option to “auto” and check “Compact Table” option.
  • Fixed Table Width – set fixed table width in PX, % or auto (in this case table will be adjusted by table content).
  • Fixed Table Width (mobile) – set fixed table width in PX or %. Choose “disable” to make the table width adjust by table content.
  • Compact Table – decrease the amount of white-space in the table.
  • Align by First Table – if checked – this table will be resized by first Supsystic table on a page. Important! This option makes sense only if the table is not on responsive mode or responsive mode is disabled. Also if the first table has a different count of columns or different settings, their sizes may not be equal.
  • Disable Wrapping – disable wrapping of content in the table, so all text in the cells is on a single line.
  • Paragraph Mode – allows you to separate the content into paragraphs. To move to a new line in the cell – please press CTRL + Enter.
  • Light-box – add Light-box for images.

Also, on the Appearance tab easy to set such features:

  • Row striping – for example – you use a table, but the table’s rows are difficult to separate visually, especially when there are many columns (or multiple lines to a row) – add row striping to a table, it will display rows background in two similar shades of colour to alternately.

  • Highlight the order column – the currently sorted column will be highlighted.
