The `BasicTable` class represents a table with styling and formatting that can be rendered to multiple output formats.

Format

R6Class object.

Active bindings

argumentCheckMode

The level of argument checking to perform. One of "auto", "none", "minimal", "basic", "balanced" (default) or "full".

compatibility

A list containing compatibility options to force legacy behaviours. See the NEWS file for details.

traceEnabled

A logical value indicating whether actions are logged to a trace file.

cells

A `TableCells` object containing all of the cells in the body of the table.

allCells

A list of all of the cells in the table, where each element in the list is a 'TableCell' object.

mergedCells

A `TableCellRanges` object describing the merged cells.

rowCount

The number of rows in the table.

columnCount

The number of columns in the table.

asCharacter

The plain-text representation of the table.

theme

The name of the theme used to style the table. If setting this property, either a theme name can be used, or a list can be used (which specifies a simple theme) or a `TableStyles` object can be used. See the "Styling" vignette for details and examples.

styles

A `TableStyles` object containing the styles used to theme the table.

allowExternalStyles

Default `FALSE`, which means the `TableStyles` object checks that style names specified for styling the different parts of the table must exist in the styles collection. If they do not an error will occur. Specify `TRUE` to disable this check, e.g. if the style definitions are not managed by `basictabler` but instead in an external system.

allTimings

The time taken for various activities related to constructing the table.

significantTimings

The time taken for various activities related to constructing the table, where the elapsed time > 0.1 seconds.

Details

There are five ways to specify the part(s) of a table to apply styling to:
(1) By specifying a list of data groups using the `groups` argument.
(2) By specifying a list of cells using the `cells` argument.
(3) By specifying a single cell using the `rFrom` and `cFrom` arguments.
(4) By specifying a rectangular cell range using the `rFrom`, `cFrom`, `rTo` and `cTo` arguments.
(5) By specifying a vector of rowNumbers and/or columnNumbers. If both rowNumbers and columnNumbers are specified, then the cells at the intersection of the specified row numbers and column numbers are styled.
If both rFrom/rTo and rowNumbers are specified, then rFrom/rTo constrain the row numbers specified in rowNumbers.
If both cFrom/cTo and columnNumbers are specified, then cFrom/cTo constrain the column numbers specified in columnNumbers.
See the "Styling" and "Finding and Formatting" vignettes for more information and many examples.

Returns

  mappings = NULL,
  styleLowerValues = FALSE,
  styleHigherValues = TRUE
)

Arguments

styleProperty

The name of the style property to set on the specified cells, e.g. background-color.

cells

A list containing `TableCell` objects.

valueType

The type of style value to be set. Must be one of: "text", "character", "number", "numeric", "color" or "colour".
"text" and "character" are equivalent. "number" and "numeric" are equivalent. "color" and "colour" are equivalent.

mapType

The type of mapping to be performed. The following mapping types are supported:
(1) "value" = a 1:1 mapping which maps each specified "from" value to the corresponding "to" value, e.g. 100 -> "green".
(2) "logic" = each from value is logical criteria. See details.
(3) "range" = values between each pair of "from" values are mapped to the corresponding "to" value, e.g. values in the range 80-100 -> "green" (more specifically values greater than or equal to 80 and less than 100).
(4) "continuous" = rescales values between each pair of "from" values into the range of the corresponding pair of "to" values, e.g. if the "from" range is 80-100 and the corresponding "to" range is 0.8-1, then 90 -> 0.9.
"continuous" cannot be used with valueType="text"/"character".

mappings

The mappings to be applied, specified in one of the following three forms:
(1) a list containing pairs of values, e.g. `list(0, "red", 0.4, "yellow", 0.8, "green")`.
(2) a list containing "from" and "to" vectors/lists, e.g. `list(from=c(0, 0.4, 0.8), to=c("red", "yellow", "green"))`.
(3) a custom mapping function that will be invoked once per cell, e.g. `function(v, cell) if(isTRUE(v>0.8)) return("green") `.
Mappings must be specified in ascending order when valueType="range" or valueType="continuous".
If a custom mapping function is specified, then the valueType and mapType parameters are ignored.

styleLowerValues

A logical value, default `FALSE`, that specifies whether values less than the lowest specified "from" value should be styled using the style specified for the lowest "from" value. Only applies when valueType="range" or valueType="continuous".

styleHigherValues

A logical value, default `TRUE`, that specifies whether values greater than the highest specified "from" value should be styled using the style specified for the highest "from" value. Only applies when valueType="range" or valueType="continuous".

Details

`mapStyling()` is typically used to conditionally apply styling to cells based on the value of each individual cell, e.g. cells with values less than a specified number could be coloured red.
mapType="logic" maps values matching specified logical criteria to specific "to" values. The logical criteria can be any of the following forms (the first matching mapping is used):
(1) a specific value, e.g. 12.
(2) a specific value equality condition, e.g. "v==12", where v represents the cell value.
(3) a value range expression using the following abbreviated form: "value1<=v<value2", e.g. "10<=v<15". Only "<" or "<=" can be used in these value range expressions.
(4) a standard R logical expression, e.g. "10<=v && v<15".
Basic R functions that test the value can also be used, e.g. is.na(v).
See the "Styling" and Finding and Formatting" vignettes for more information and many examples.

Returns

No return value.

e.g. `list(c(1, 2), c(3, 4))` specifies two cells, the first located at row 1, column 2 and the second located at row 3, column 4.
When `specifyCellsAsList=FALSE`:
Get one or more rows by specifying the row numbers as a vector as the rowNumbers argument and leaving the columnNumbers argument set to the default value of `NULL`, or
