tblStylePr (Style Conditional Table Formatting Properties)

This element specifies a set of formatting properties which shall be conditionally applied to the parts of a table which match the requirement specified on the type attribute. These table conditional formats are applied to different regions of the table as follows:

All rows in the table can also have conditional formatting on an alternating row/column basis as well as follows:

When specified, these conditional formats shall be applied in the following order (therefore subsequent formats override properties on previous formats):

  • Whole table

  • Banded columns, even column banding

  • Banded rows, even row banding

  • First row, last row

  • First column, last column

  • Top left, top right, bottom left, bottom right

[Example: Consider a table style which contains conditional formatting, defined as follows:

<w:style w:type="table" w:styleId="exampleTableStyle">
  …  <w:tblStylePr w:type="firstRow">
      <w:tblCellSpacing w:w="29" w:type="dxa"/>
    …  </w:tblStylePr>

The tblStylePr element specifies a set of table properties which must be conditionally applied to all parts of the table which meet the criteria specified by the type attribute (in this case, all heading rows for the current table). end example]

[Example: Consider a table style which contains conditional formatting, defined as follows:

<w:style w:type="table" …>
  …  <w:tblStylePr w:type="lastRow">
    …  </w:tblStylePr>

The type attribute value of lastRow specifies that this set of conditional formatting properties must be applied to the last row of the table only. end example]

The possible values for this attribute are defined by the ST_TblStyleOverrideType simple type (§17.18.89).
