Adds a new row to the table.

Component Version macOS Windows Server FileMaker Cloud FileMaker iOS SDK
DynaPDF 3.5 Yes Yes Yes Yes Yes
MBS( "DynaPDF.Table.AddRow"; Table; Height )   More


Parameter Description Example value
Table The identifier for the table. $Table
Height Minimum height or -1 for default height. 10


Returns error or new row index.


Adds a new row to the table.
The parameter Height can be set to a negative value to indicate that the default row height should be used. The default row height was specified in DynaPDF.Table.Create.
The specified height represents the minimum height of the row. If the height of a foreground object is larger then the height will be adjusted.
The height is sometimes required. This is the case when a cell is rotated by 90 or a multiple of 90 degrees and if the height cannot be computed from the cell contents, e.g. if a cell contains text and if the flag NoLineBreak is absent. See DynaPDF.Table.SetCellOrientation for further information.

If the function succeeds, the return value is the row index, a value greater or equal zero. If the function fails, the return value is a negative error code.


Adds a row:

MBS("DynaPDF.Table.AddRow"; $table)

Adds a header row:

#Add header row
Set Variable [$row; Value:MBS("DynaPDF.Table.AddRow"; $table)]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("DynaPDF.Table.SetCellText"; $table; $row; 0; "right"; "top"; "Index")]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("DynaPDF.Table.SetCellText"; $table; $row; 1; "left"; "top"; "Product")]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("DynaPDF.Table.SetCellText"; $table; $row; 2; "right"; "top"; "Price")]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("DynaPDF.Table.SetCellText"; $table; $row; 3; "right"; "top"; "Quantity")]
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("DynaPDF.Table.SetCellText"; $table; $row; 4; "right"; "top"; "Total Price")]
# set flag for header row
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("DynaPDF.Table.SetFlags"; $table; $row; -1; "HeaderRow")]
# make row bold
Set Variable [$r; Value:MBS("DynaPDF.Table.SetFont"; $table; $row; -1; "Helvetica"; 2; 1; "unicode")]
