#249 – Creating a Table in a FlowDocument

You can include a table in a FlowDocument as content by using the Table block.  You present your content by laying it out as rows and columns.

	<FlowDocument FontFamily="Cambria" FontSize="14">
		<Paragraph>Some Pixar films:</Paragraph>
		<Table>
			<Table.Columns>
				<TableColumn Width="50*"/>
				<TableColumn Width="15*"/>
				<TableColumn />
			</Table.Columns>

			<TableRowGroup Background="LightGray" FontWeight="Bold">
				<TableRow>
					<TableCell><Paragraph>Title</Paragraph></TableCell>
					<TableCell><Paragraph>Year</Paragraph></TableCell>
					<TableCell><Paragraph>Director</Paragraph></TableCell>
				</TableRow>
			</TableRowGroup>

			<TableRowGroup FontFamily="Verdana" FontSize="12">
				<TableRow>
					<TableCell><Paragraph>Toy Story</Paragraph></TableCell>
					<TableCell><Paragraph>1995</Paragraph></TableCell>
					<TableCell><Paragraph>John Lasseter</Paragraph></TableCell>
				</TableRow>
				<TableRow>
					<TableCell><Paragraph>Monster's, Inc.</Paragraph></TableCell>
					<TableCell><Paragraph>2001</Paragraph></TableCell>
					<TableCell><Paragraph>Pete Docter</Paragraph></TableCell>
				</TableRow>
				<TableRow>
					<TableCell><Paragraph>The Incredibles</Paragraph></TableCell>
					<TableCell><Paragraph>2004</Paragraph></TableCell>
					<TableCell><Paragraph>Brad Bird</Paragraph></TableCell>
				</TableRow>
			</TableRowGroup>
		</Table>
	</FlowDocument>

    Hi,

    Great article!

    I am looking for a way to databind the Table in the FlowDocument with either an ObservableCollection object or a DataTable obj. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks
    Santosh
